A mindful morning. As a foodie, my mindful morning always has to do with a fresh, scrumptious breakfast. When I was looking for breakfast at lake placid, I came across only a few restaurants. Honestly, the name Farm Cafe magnate me.
A tidy and cozy set up with a bar Farm Cafe have a great ambiance. As I went through the menu, I was looking for whole wheat or multi-grain bread, but they don't have that option. So, I stuck with veg omelet and house fries with coffee. The omelet was deliciously fluffy. Wish the vegetables were little fresher would have made the taste even better.
Kids got flapjack and hot chocolate. You have an option to add either fruits or chocolate chips to flapjacks, and all came with fresh fruits. There is nothing better about a good breakfast when you get the chance to start with farm fresh fruits. And Farm Cafe sparks every entry with cut fresh fruits. Like fresh fruit, if they also pay little attention to adding farm fresh veggies that will surely perk up Farm Cafe menu.
The good bite kitchen(lunch)...
When you are in a tourist place lunch is always in a hurry since you want to see all the places and do activities before the sun sets its day. How about some really good food in no time. Yes, that's what came to my mind when I entered Good bite.
New era innovative, quick and chic food take on vegetarian food. Locally sourced fresh food, this little eatery with six sitting inside and few outsides overlooking the lively downtown alley, Good bite offers bowls, sandwiches, and soup to smoothies and herbal lattes.
I went for Kara bowl, it came with moong beans, roasted green peppers, kale, Havarti cheese, pumpkin seeds and honey mustard and I chose whole wheat pasta base. For bowls, good bite offers options for bases like whole wheat pasta, zucchini noodle or brown rice. It was so refreshing, healthful and mindful at the same time decadent. Slippery soft pasta with moong beans grainy flavor is very palatable, and one can't really think of mixing this together. Yet again proving the point that good food does not need to be guilt food after eating.
For drinks, I had mango raspberry kale and almond milk smoothie. It surely blows your taste buds even though you are not exactly a smoothie niche like me. The best part is everything is under ten dollars with options of vegan and gluten-free. My next visit to lake placid won't be complete without visiting The Good bite kitchen again.
