Getting a break although adapting to lifetime as new mother and father, Lindsey and I felt it was time to as soon as again go to some new dining establishments in our readership area. Despite the fact that this aspect won’t be almost as recurrent, my hope is to highlight a neighborhood place as soon as a month.

With my mom and dad browsing in excess of Easter weekend, it provided the excellent possibility to get out of the home realizing “Nana” and “Pappy D” experienced a watchful eye on Cooper.

During modern scrolls by way of Fb, images of dishes from DuBois Corner Cafe regularly caught our interest. Contemplating it was not a person of the 20 dining places integrated in previous year’s period of Ben’s Bites, we had been compelled to give it a test.

Here’s a recap of our go to:

Situated inside the DuBois Shopping mall, the DuBois Corner Cafe invitations these going for walks by with shiny white and blue colours to get your focus.

A lot of seating solutions are obtainable, with a menu presenting pleasant wide variety, from starters to salads along with pizza, burgers and other signature sandwiches.

Intrigued by the strategy, I ordered a bubble tea to kick factors off. In essence, it is a game in a cup, with a straw huge sufficient to seize the flavored bubbles which add a burst of enjoyment guiding the flavor of tea. It is feasible I appeared childish for a number of moments enjoying with my drink, as apparent by Lindsey’s unamused gaze.

In any case, on to our orders, which involved a “Monte Cristo” and a “Chicken N Biscuit.” The concept of this piece is to try out special or staple selections linked to that locale. Each of these appeared to in good shape the monthly bill.

My option of the Rooster N Biscuit shipped a great distinction of flakey and crispy, with the biscuit performing as a comfortable foundation to the crunch of the chicken. Including to the practical experience were the two sauces, both of those of which stood tall as a enhance. The spicy syrup introduced a sense of breakfast into the equation, while the honey mustard mayo could effortlessly make its way into just about any meal I eat relocating ahead. After finishing my sandwich, I alternated dips of chips making an attempt to establish which sauce I preferred greater. Ten minutes later, I settled on a tie.

A comparable progress unfolded when I tried a chunk of Lindsey’s Monte Cristo. On first effect, this was an fantastic variety, combining the smokiness of the ham with the savoriness of the turkey and sweetness of the bread and powdered sugar. Each and every bite gave off a trace of French toast that would verify pleasant at any time of day, creating this a real take care of. Continue to, a dip into the raspberry syrup took items to one more amount. The assortment of flavors was mouth watering, culminating in a 3rd sauce seeking to steal the display.

Just before leaving, we requested a grilled chicken salad to consider property for my mom. Even though not individually trying it, Mom gave it a robust review, particularly amazed by the sum of rooster.

Capped with a extremely affordable monthly bill, we will certainly be back, whether for breakfast, lunch or supper.
