Rugby, Tennessee is a settlement of some historical significance "off the beaten path." It was established by English aristocracy for the second-born sons as the first-born sons were the heirs of the estate "back home." Unfortunately, these second-born sons lacked the "know-how" of keeping the settlement going in good stead, and after some years, the effort was unsuccessful. The village, however, has been "preserved," and there are special events that appeal to visitors scheduled during the year.
The Harrow Road Cafe is an establishment that has been available for serving food when we have visited, the last time in 2005. At that time, I jotted down a recipe for the rolls that were served with our order. I simply call them "Harrow Road Cafe Rolls."
