The Farm at South Mountain is a 12-acre oasis filled with pecan trees and picnic tables. Not only are there three restaurants on the premise, but also an art studio, a healing sanctuary, and a garden. Though I did some exploring, my focus on this visit was the Morning Glory Cafe.
It’s an outdoor seating cafe that has some pretty amazing trees surrounding it. Seating is open, but once it starts getting packed they start doing a waiting list. So I suggest coming early to avoid the lines, espeically on Sundays.
I really liked the mix of the customers too. There were young, old, families, couples, church goers, and people in their gym gear showing up after their workout. It’s also a dog-friendly restaurant! Making this place even more down to earth (if that is even possible) and enjoyable to just sit and relax.
Can you believe this is my first Monte Cristo? I know very disappointing indeed! Another reason why I was super excited to check out this place and be able to cross this off on my list. I know it isn’t the fried version, but I will one of these days at Blue Bayou in Disneyland *drool*.
Boy, so delicious and can see why it’s a favorite among folks. The salt from the ham with the bread, maple, cheese, and egg just unite perfectly together. I think what made this sandwich even more delightful was that they used challah bread for the french toast at the Morning Glory Cafe. I just love the thickness and the taste of this bread and highly recommend it.
Egg White, Spinach and Shitake Mushroom Omelette $10.95
With locally grown spinach and roasted shitake mushrooms
Served with Farm “home fries” and a buttermilk biscuit
Clarisse got this and it was indeed a very simple breakfast compared to the Monte Cristo. It was light and fresh, but the filling of the omelette was weak. I like omelettes f-i-l-l-e-d with whatever ingredients it’s suppose to have. Otherwise, I would of ordered just eggs, not an omelette. But besides that, great tasting eggs and delicious veggies inside. Not a fan of home fries, but I did try the biscuit which sadly I didn’t care for because it was too dry. I suggest just coming for the Monte Cristo
Don’t forget to roam, relax, and enjoy yourself during your visit. I plan on coming back to check out the other two restaurants too. They just seem like another peaceful dining experience to enjoy. Who would of thought you can find such tranquility just 10 minutes away from Downtown. Thanks The Farm at South Mountain for keeping it real
