In the past month or so, Missus Dear Friend and I have been doing a Girl’s Day Out every other week. We’ve been meeting at different local restaurants for lunch and then we go grocery shopping together. My favorite green grocer, Sprouts, opened a second location in our area and we both wanted to check it out. So what to do about lunch? The Raven Café, they offer lots of vegetarian and gluten-free options and a lovely menu of beers and wine, that’ll work for us.
This a cool, funky, laid back joint; they have loads of unique works of art for sale on the walls. You order your food and drinks at the bar; you get a “letter” and find a seat. We both decided that it was close enough to noon that a glass of wine would be a good thing.
Mrs. DF ordered Sweet Potato fries and Guacamole with Blue Corn Chips.
For myself, I decided on a Turkey Panini and a side salad. Everything was yummy.
What I enjoyed about the Raven Café is that we never felt rushed. We sat, chatted and savored our wine for more than two hours. As we looked around, we noticed that there were several “business meetings” being conducted over lunch. I mean we’re talking about folks with their easel stands, presentation boards and all! We’ll need to go back again and try some of the other dishes as well as the upstairs outdoor patio.
