Jun 3: Creekside Cafe; Wagu Sirloin, with Mashed Potato, Gravy, Broccoli and Baby Carrots

Brunch

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.

Dinner

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!
