The Foodies were on the road again having left Keystone around 7am, we were ready for brunch in Steamboat CO, where we settled on the Creekside Cafe, which was – unsurprisingly – beside a swift flowing creek.
Foodie Philip had a Breakfast Croissant with local Ham and Home Fries, while Foodie Greg had a Florentine Benedict with a very good Hollandaise. The Croissant didn’t live up to the previous experience, but the local Ham was very tasty and served generously, for $19.52 per serve with tax and tip.
If the menu for dinner sounds like a throwback, you’d be right. The Foodies were in Salt Lake City after a very long, but incredibly scenic, drive so we ate in Little America’s Coffee Shop. The ambiance was definitely 1950’s.
The Wagu Sirloin was part of a “complete meal” so Foodie Greg stared with a quite ordinary salad, while Foodie Philip’s Pea and Ham soup was tasty and filling. The Dinner Rolls were the whitest of white breads.
The Wagu Sirloin was a perfect medium rare, as requested for this cut. The Mashed Potato was good, and the Gravy was definitely more flavorsome than most. The steamed vegetables lacked character and flavor. A mixed meal, but overall we enjoyed it.
The desert took so long to come, after a long wait for our meal as it didn’t ‘fire’ the first time, that the Foodies took it back to our over heated room. (A kitchen ‘fires’ a meal at the point where it will be ready to serve a short time after appetizer dishes are removed.) A fairly disappointing meal for $33.78 per serve, one of the most expensive of the trip!
