Fun times with friends!
Terrace Cafe opened in Charlotte not too long ago, and I’ve been wanting to go ever since! The menu is up my alley, and little did I know what a great atmosphere it has as well!
Love the open + airy modern feel – with cool sculptures!
We waited for about 30 minutes for a table, which was great because it gave me more time to get hungry!
That is until they brought around some complimentary apple fritters!! This place quickly jumped to my new favorite restaurant 😉
When we sat down I ordered a cappuccino. I find that I have better luck with espresso than coffee in restaurants (since I’m such a French press snob now and all 🙂 )
I could not decide, however, if I wanted an omelet or a waffle. I tend to not order waffles and pancakes in restaurants not because I’m anti-carb or anything, but because I feel by lunchtime that I’m ready for veggies and protein. But I also wanted to order something that I can’t make at home and the #1 thing on the menu was a waffle since we don’t own a waffle maker!
Lucky for me, Matt was thinking the same thing and was torn between a sweet waffle and a savory omelet so we decided to share!
I ordered the Belgium waffle with Pecans and a side of fruit
Matt ordered a make-your-own omelet with mushrooms, spinach and Gruyere
And here’s my plate – half a waffle donated, 1/3 an omelet accepted along with some delicious strawberry jam! I also added a drizzle of syrup to my waffle (and ate 80% of it and gave the last few bites to Matt)
The fruit was excellent!
Cool silverware + water glasses!
Check out these adorable mini skillets and deep fryers on the dessert tray! Must come back for dessert!
Off to roll!
