Hand breaded chicken tenders in Cap’n Crunch batter, Frank’s Red Hot sauce, and Pepper Jack cheese on Farmhouse White with a side of bleu cheese dressing.

A truly interesting sandwich.  The breading is super sweet and the sauce is salty & spicy while the chicken is moist.  Perfectly grilled bread is dense & chewy.

Sphere-shaped Scandinavian pancakes served with fresh whipped cream and raspberries in syrup.

Not your grandmother’s pancakes (unless, of course, you’re Scandinavian), these orbs are a delightful change of pace.  A slight crust forms on the outside while the inside remains light and fluffy.

Two large pancakes rolled with Nutella and served with fresh sliced strawberries and powdered sugar.

Not as dainty as a typical crepe, hence the “poor man’s” moniker, this is a hearty & satisfying treat.  For breakfast or dessert, the rugged pancake is liberally filled with Nutella’s chocolate-hazelnut goodness.  The strawberries add a tart freshness.
