After we got our waters and placed our orders at the cute picnic style tables, we wandered around the store to explore.
So much fresh produce!
I could have easily spent a lot of money stocking up on jams, dressings, baking mixes and other goodies. I resisted at the time, but am excited to go back for Christmas gifts for family and friends.
Oh, and did I mention the wine?! I wasn't expecting this.
Finally, it was time to eat. Since I was in the mood to try a variety of things, the Vegetable Plate was the perfect choice. It comes with your choice of four side dishes plus a cornbread muffin. I chose butter beans, broccoli salad, sweet potato fries (sprinkled with cinnamon sugar!!!) and garden vegetables which included roasted carrots, onion, pepper and potatoes. I couldn't get enough, jumping from one side dish to another, but ultimately those giant thick-cut sweet potato fries were the star of the show.
I somehow managed to avoid the dessert counter full of cakes and ice cream. It's a good thing I was in a hurry to get back to the office otherwise I would have likely walked out with a ice cream cone in one hand and a slice of cake "for later" in the other.
The Boone Hall Farms cafe is my kind of place and I can't wait to get back for more.
Locals - Have you been to Boone Hall Farms? If you're not from around here, do you have any place like this where you live?
