Officially known as Rosebud’s Giftique & Bakery, the sweet little family-owned cafe was packed at lunch time when I decided to dine. The restaurant serves homemade soups, salads & sandwiches, and the bakery counter is full of freshly made brownies, cookies, cakes & ice box pies. There were a couple of regulars who told me that they love the “Turkey Reuben” and not to forget to enjoy a slice of fresh pie.
I ordered “The Rosebud Plate,” which offers four finger sandwiches, a cup of soup, deli salad, fresh fruit salad and a choice of dessert or truffle. I really enjoyed Brian’s Special Chicken Salad which included red grapes, pineapples, dried cranberries and walnuts. The corn chowder soup was delicious. But, the show stopper was the chocolate cream pie, filled with a wonderful balance of bitter & sweet chocolate pudding topped with whipped cream. It was the perfect ratio of filling to cream.
