Love for Cafe Flora

I remember the first time my mom took me to Cafe Flora this was on or about my 10th year of being a vegetarian. Well so much for that... at the age of 30 I welcomed chicken back into my life. Anyways, I loved their menu at first glance because of the savory selections and the way they pair all of the tastes. They also have a specialty drink menu which features some unique drinks including my favorite, Cringer, which is cranberry ginger cider. I even took my father to Cafe Flora once and he about lost his mind when he tried the portabella wellington. This dish is a great place to start for those who crave that hearty meat and potatoes meal. My dad always embraced my vegetarianism even though his concept of meat free was basically picking out the polish sausage and just eating the sauce.

I work fairly close to Cafe Flora so I went to lunch with RiRi last week. She was craving their Yam Fries, which she ordered a bucket for her lunch.

I was really interested in trying the coconut tofu but it was gone by the time I ordered. boo. So I went with the Quesadilla Verde which had yams, pepper jack cheese, pumpkin seed cilantro spread which was topped with green salsa and cream. The tortillas were corn , making this dish gluten free for those who get down like that, aekae.

I also enjoyed a bowl of the soup of the day which was lentil. It had big pieces of garlic which was quite tasty. The soup came out so hot, I was unable to eat it right away...which is a plus because I cannot stand room temperature food.
