Pond House Cafe in Elizabeth Park

July 8, 2011

The Pond House Cafe in Elizabeth Park is a perfect destination for brunch — before or after a walk through their incredible rose gardens .

IMG_0039As we sat there trying to decide what to order, all the food that was served at tables around us looked inviting.

We settled on the Veggie Burrito ($11.42). A delicious flour tortilla full of  refried beans, roasted red peppers, caramelized onions and a smidgen of of mozzarella and Parmesan. I’d highly recommend that.

The Pond House Cafe’s brie and apple omelet ($7.25) was interesting but quite bland.brie and granny smith omelet on biteofthebest.com I would have preferred the Granny Smith apples sauteed in butter and brown sugar (or something) before being added to the omelet. I would have also preferred lots more cheese inside as I had to hunt to find any. I found this chef stingy with cheese – although I heard their between chefs right now. That could have been the problem.

Still I recommend the Pond House Cafe for a bite to eat while touring their incredible gardens. I know I’ll go back to sample some of their other offerings.

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve
    got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people
    could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

    Personally, I think two photos are just the right amount for the copy!

    Thanks, though, we appreciate your thoughts and your praise of the writing.
