Travel and Good Eats
After the wedding my husband Carl and I stayed in that vacation rental (The River Jewel) I told you about. Wow, the attention to detail was all over the place. The property owners really love making this place feel like home. We stayed in a loft style suite.
The next morning we found this cute little café/bakery called Antoinette’s. They had a menu full of natural organic and locally grown foods. It was super delicious, and the staff was very gracious. The chef and I got into a conversation about the River Jewel… he works there too (it’s a small community). He also shared with me his appreciation for the Jewel and the attention to detail. He served us up a fantastic breakfast. We will definitely be back.
Later we went to lunch at a food truck in the area. This place has quaint outdoor seating and a unique menu of natural organic comfort food. I hear in the winter this place keeps a fire burning, and the guest get to wrap in warm thick blankets that are brought to them by the owner. The food was delish.
I went for the chicken and waffles. These weren’t just any waffles; they were a brown butter sweet rye waffle with honey butter and maple syrup. I’m salivating as I write this. The other dish was a buttermilk fried organic chicken sandwich with avocado cabbage slaw. If you’re ever in Three Rivers you have to stop at The Ol’ Buckaroo.
Don’t forget to try the candy/icecream shop Reimers.
