Eating is something we do a lot of while at the Greenbrier. So in comparison to the other meals, our lunch at Cafe Carleton was quite light. We popped in for a quick bite before enjoying some afternoon shopping. As usual, I love the decor.
As you can see, there is a food counter with several options on display. They also have a little menu you can look though, but the choices are all on the lighter side…which is nice.
My daughter and I both opted for a potato soup. Potato soup is a childhood favorite of mine. It is one of my go to comfort foods. Anyway, it was delicious.
My son also went with a soup, but he had the Greenbrier Steak Chili. Is chili a soup? Not sure…but he loves chili! It was a blend of brisket, ground beef, onions and red peppers. He devoured it!
My husband saw the Open Faced Tuna Salad in the case and couldn’t resist. It had a Kalamata olive spread on the ciabatta bread that spiced it up a little. Plus, we love hard boiled eggs. We all stole a little of that off his plate. 🙂
After checking out the desserts in the case, I am shocked to say that I didn’t get anything! But the rest of my family did.
My daughter got a Vanilla cupcake, my husband got a peanut butter cookie and my son got a raisin scone. He loved the scone so much, he begged for a second one. We caved…so my son had two raisin scones. 🙂
Overall, it was a great lunch at Cafe Carleton. It was the lightest meal we ate. Probably should have had more light meals. I’m still up a pound from this trip. 😉
So what’s your favorite comfort food? Or favorite soup? Would you consider a raisin scone dessert?
