Quaint Cafe

   Madilynne was recently given a gift certificate to a quaint little café in an area about 40 minutes away from home. This establishment is known to be different from other eateries in the area (farm to table type) so we were very excited to try it. Upon walking into restaurant I found that it was very bright and colorful.  The proprietors  had it decorated with lots of lights strung from the ceiling along with many colorful origami pieces throughout.  The tables were all mismatched-no two tables/chair sets were the same but it worked.  They also had local artesian work decorating the area that you could purchase.

   The most important part is that the food was delicious! It was made fresh and with healthy ingredients.  I ordered a Bourbon BBQ Chicken Flatbread sandwich with coleslaw.  Mercy was it good!  Madilynne ordered a kale salad with quinoa, butternut squash and dried cranberries and a side of cauliflower "wings".  She reported that it was delicious. Ryder stuck with a basic- a cheeseburger.  It was made with grass fed beef and was nice and thick and also received a good rating.  My mother-in-law and my sister-in-law were with us and they both ordered Caesar salads with grilled chicken and cauliflower "wings". My SIL stated that it was one of the best Caesar salads she has had in quite some time.

   One of the tastiest things that we tried today was a blueberry soda.  Oh my! was it ever good. I am not a fan of soda but for some reason it just sounded good and it didn't disappoint!  We are all fans of that soda. The label was kind of confusing but I think that it was from Maine Root??? Not quite sure about that though. 

   I am so glad that we tried this restaurant.  It was a bit of a distance to travel but good food, good company and a bit of an adventure for our taste buds made it worthwhile. It is fun to try something outside the norm. My SIL listed a couple other restaurants that we should try sometime.  Sounds like fun!  I hope that they all turn out as enjoyable as this one!
