My good friend Wendy had a surprise birthday party thrown for her by her husband a few weeks back. The party was at the Sunrise Cafe in Yellow Springs. If you haven’t been to Yellow Springs – go tomorrow. Seriously – it’s a beautiful little town with lots of shops and restaurants. Perfect for a leisurely Labor Day holiday!
Wendy got an AMAZING gift from her husband! Look at this thing! A motorcycle with a side car and she will be the driver! Not sure if the dogs or her husband will be in the side car – but I know I’m hoping for a ride very soon. It is definitely a sweet ride.
Dinner started out with a delightful homemade biscuit. Sunrise is very high on local and organic foods. So you know the food is going to be fresh and unique. It was a heavy biscuit but very flavorful.
We were also treated to music (and a gift cd) from Wendy’s friend. Of course – I can’t remember his name! I think it was Keith May – but I’ll change this for sure once I hear back from the birthday girl. Yes! Keith May!
onion, peanuts, and our flavor-layered spicy thai peanut sauce over rice. $14.00
For dessert – Jen and I shared a couple desserts. I chose the Key Lime Pie and it was delish! This might have been the best piece of Key Lime Pie I’ve ever had. It wasn’t too sweet or sour or heavy. Wow!
Jen chose the Flourless Chocolate Hazelnut Cake. Most flourless cakes are kind of heavy but this was very light and almost like mousse. It was so delicious…but my key lime was better! We were both very pleased.
Overall – it was such a wonderful occassion to celebrate and the food was definitely a nice compliment. I really recommend going to Yellow Springs as early as possible and staying late – that way you can fit at least two meals in! (Make sure you also go to HaHa.)
