My friend April brought me to Floriole Cafe & Bakery because she thought we would both like it. She has a knack for picking good eating spots.
We ordered the Tartine of the Day: Grilled Sourdough Topped with Goat Cheese, Squash and Herbs. It was served open-face with a side salad. I love squash and this was fresh, hearty and filling. I would definitely get this again.
Also the B.A.D.: Bacon, Arugula, Almond Date Spread and Goat Cheese on Grilled Yeasted Corn Bread. A light take on a BLT. The almond date spread gave it some sweetness that was a nice change. If you have a really big appetite the B.A.D. may not be heavy enough satisfy you. In that case I’d get a side of mac and cheese.
My picture of the B.A.D. did not turn out well but there is a good picture on their website for reference.
The cafe itself is on two levels and has a very spacious open feel to it. The top floor has tons of natural light and makes a good spot to enjoy some coffee, lunch and even use as workspace as I saw a few people camped out with their laptop. I was here on a Friday afternoon and it was busy but plenty of seating.
I am looking forward to going back for some sweets (Creme Fraiche Tea Cake, Pecan Sticky Bun, Savory Galette) and more savory, want to try the grilled cheese (Spring Cheddar, Butterkase and Cheddar Spread on Brioche) — they were out when we were there — must be really good.
I also included some other pictures from Floriole’s site to give you an idea of what they have to offer.
