|Red Velvet Whoopie Pie|
Well, their version of Whoopie pie does not disappoint- you know you're going to get a cake that is gonna be good when it leaves marks of red on the plate it's served, it's super moist cake and you can almost taste that artificial red food coloring. Along with the cream cheese frosting, it's a all around satisfying dessert!
|Ham & Egg Waffle Sandwich with Rosemary Bechamel Sauce|
Okay, now onto breakfast and lunch items: the number one most favorite item on this menu is the HAM & EGG WAFFLE SANDWICH!!! It's has Aged Cheddar, Smokey Ham, Egg Scramble covered in a creamy Rosemary Béchamel Sauce sandwiched between two soft Waffles. The subtle flavor of Rosemary, along with layers of tasty cheese and ham, (no skimping out here) make for a delectable dish that is decadent for breakfast. Totally our favorite and can't live without it!
Another item on the menu is the Breakfast Burrito-Scrambled Eggs, Potatoes, Tomato Salsa, Aged Cheddar with Ham, Bacon or Sausage. We ordered it with Applewood Smoked Bacon, a really good thick cut slab! The salsa is tangy and the burrito is grilled on a panini press which gives it a good crispy exterior. Accompanied with a side green salad, it makes a good compliment to the Waffle Sandwich.
Another good dish is the BLT Grilled Cheese, with Smoke Mozzarella, Applewood Smoke Bacon and Sauteed Green Peppers.
So not everything on the menu is to our liking (unfortunately). The Egg Pizza-with Scrambled Eggs, Caramelized Red Onions, Red Skin Potatoes, Green Bell Peppers and Fresh Mozzarella fell a little short on flavor. I think it could have used a something tangy to offset the cheese and the texture of the scramble egg and the pizza bread felt too mushy and soft. Oh well, not everything can be a home run....
For lunch items that we had on prior occasions that are worthy to note: The Muffaletta Sandwich-with layers of Ham, Capicola, Salami, Mortadella, Provolone, Mozzarella, Swiss, Fontina, and HM Giardiniera Olive spread is a mighty good sandwich! Another one is the Corn Beef and Rye with Sauteed Cabbage, Swiss Cheese, house made Thousand Island dressing and whole grain mustard. Bread & Butter has a solid handle on it's lunch offerings and is a formidable option for your midday meal!
For drinks, they have a huge display of root beer selections to choose from, and it gets mighty hard to choose from, ask the staff for recommendations. And they serve some serious coffee that delivers bold flavors that compliments any baked item!!
As for the staff, we love them! They are the epitome of hospitality: incredibly friendly and patient, they are quick to give any suggestions to direct the customers to a satisfying choice. They are always on the floor, quick to clear tables and replenish utensils and frequently asking customers if they need anything which is the mark of good operations management.
