Some friends invited me to a nice Indian restaurant called Spice Cafe. Located in the middle of university area of UNC Charlotte, Spice Cafe offers a nice selection of foods to accommodate my picky tastes.

I’ve seen the largest menu ever.

I located Cafe Gouda during a search prior to a recent trip to The Smokey Mountains. The online menu listed several items that I wanted to try.

Upon walking in and to the order counter we were presented with a huge chalk board full of items.

The Café Gouda menu offers both traditional and unique dishes, serving delicious food for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

36th Street Bakery, Cafe & Catering

I had the pleasure of visiting 36th Street Bakery, Cafe & Catering in Lincolnton, N.C. while driving to the  Blue Ridge Mountains.  As soon as I opened the door the aroma of fresh baked items attacked my senses.  I was immediately drawn to the pastry case.  I checked out every item like I was visiting a museum of sweetness.   It was obvious to me that I was going to enjoy this visit although it wasn’t easy choosing just one item.  There are several items on the menu that I would have enjoyed if it had been lunch time.  This was an early morning visit and the scent of the baked items required me to enjoy something sweet.  I finally decided on a cinnamon twist and enjoyed every bite.    I am rarely in the area and am not sure when I can visit again, but going out of my way on the next trip to western NC would be worth the time.  Linconlton is lucky to have this bakery and cafe in it’s beautiful downtown area.

Besides bakery items and catering, 36th Street also offers Murder Mystery Nights and Wine tastings.

Open Monday-Saturday from 7am until 9pm.

Weekly Entree Specials are W, Th, F, Sat from 5pm until 9pm.

Henry’s Uptown Cafe – Rockingham NC

Henry's Chicken Salad on Croissant with fries.

There’s a new chef in town and word is spreading about a small restaurant in Rockingham, N.C.   Henry’s Uptown Cafe is the name of this popular establishment and some would be surprised at the menu offered.  This is not your ordinary small town dining room.  The main difference is the food being prepared in the kitchen.  You can get the usual Burger and fries as expected at a small town cafe, but other items on the menu may be surprising.  Beef Caprese Salad, Henry’s Chicken Salad on Croissant, Mahi-Mahi and the daily gourmet desserts are just a few items that make this cafe menu unique.  The random desserts, made daily, are alone worth a visit to Henry’s.  Each item has a special touch that make Henry’s a place unlike any other in the area.

The daily lunch specials range from Penne Pasta with Italian sausage to Sautéed Shrimp with Tricolor tortellini in a tomato cream sauce.  These are gourmet items at affordable cafe prices are too good to pass.  One visit to Henry’s should convince any patron that Henry is in the kitchen enjoying a passion of preparing delicious meals.

A complete breakfast menu is available for the early risers and dinner is now provided Thursday through Saturday until 9:00pm.

Gourmet desserts prepared daily.

River City Cafe – Myrtle Beach

I enjoy a good hamburger and don’t have a problem being surrounded by license plates for a great hamburger.  I walked nearly two miles to River City Cafe during my most recent trip to Myrtle Beach.   The walk was worth the effort.  however, the walk back was a little difficult since my belly was full of delicious food.

The building may look out of place among the sky rise hotels along ocean boulevard, but it has been a part of Myrtle Beach for more than 25 years.   They stay busy, but very efficient in preparing meals to get you back on the beach.  Waiting is not a big deal to me.  A basket of peanuts is enough to keep me patient for a while.

The peanut shell covered menu is the closest food photo that I have available, because I devoured the hamburger before I realized that I had not taken a shot.   The two mile walk made me very hungry.    River City prepares a Jalapeno Burger as good as the way that I do and the tea is sweet as tea should be.   Just imagine what it could have looked like on a plate surrounded by french fries.

There are seven River City Cafes in the area, but I have only been to the one on 21st Avenue.
