Okay, so this isn't my recipe--I didn't even make it. But I know the woman who did, so that counts, right? I went to high school with Andi. She opened a cafe in our hometown about six months ago and has been posting the mouth watering specials on facebook ever since, making me wish I could swing by for lunch. So while I was in Idaho for spring break I hightailed it over there with my mother and two sisters.
There is just something great about a small town cafe, and this one has certainly got charm--and fabulous fare to please the pickiest palate.
We each ordered a different panini and then split them four ways so we could try each one. It was a tough call, but I am always partial to anything with basil in it, so my choice was also my favorite.
My oldest sister ordered the Turkey Pesto:
My other sister ordered theTurkey Bacon Avocado (probably my second favorite. . . because it has avocado on it!):
My mother ordered the Southwest Turkey:
And I ordered the Caprese Sandwich--YUM:
She added balsamic vinegar to her tomato, basil, mozzarella sandwich. I'm going to try that next time I make myself one. . . like tomorrow! Now I'm hungry. . .
Three of us ordered our her spinach salad with cider vinaigrette, which was oh-so-good! I would say it was definitely worth the trip. I will have to stop by next time I am in town. Check out Main Street Caffe HERE. Or their facebook page HERE (where Andi often posts the special of the day to get your mouth watering.)
And just so you know, I often take pictures of my food--and not just in my own kitchen. People sometimes give me strange looks in restaurants when I whip out my camera (which is no small piece of a equipment) and snap pictures of my food before I eat it!
Do you ever take pictures of your food in public?
