river valley farmer's table has this to say : "we are the best place around to grab coffee, tea, sandwiches & drinks while also collecting the freshest locally grown ingredients for your dinner." love it.
here's what i had ...
pickled veggie plate :
a "share-friendly" plate of house-made natural pickled farm veggies.
i love pickled things. my favorites were the beets & cucumbers (aka pickles).
bi bim bop :
curry quinoa, israeli couscous, organic mushrooms, roasted peppers, dates, shiitake "bacon," candied nuts, pepitas.
i was hesitant about this due to the mushrooms, which could not be omitted. the shiitake "bacon" was actually awesome. maybe the first time ever i liked a mushroom preparation. the rest of 'em, i just picked around.
i do want to look around the shop/grocery portion of river valley, though. there was a vegan muffin that caught my eye right when i walked in, but i forgot to grab it on my way out. there's always next time!
