It’s hot, it’s summer and my toddler is not in any camps or school. That means alone time and husband time are slim to none, unless the little one is sleeping. Lucky us, we scheduled a date morning and dropped the “mommy I’m full of energy” toddler at an hourly day care and headed to Modern Grove, which was close by. Ahhhhh, peace and quiet.
The space is nicely decked out and the outside has been built up with grass, games and an outdoor fireplace. The menu isn’t overwhelming and we decided on coffee, the ultimate breakfast sandwich and apple filled croissant. Let me just rave about this fluffy, sweet, decadent apple filled croissant for a bit. Each bite I savored and wished for more in my mouth but not around my waist.
The ultimate breakfast sandwich, which was also good, didn’t live up to the name. If you want to call yourself ultimate, you best have some meat on there. I have never seen an ultimate fighter without a lot of meat on him, I’m talking some bacon, ham, sausage or all three. We’ll be eating the panini next time, it’s exactly the same except it has meat and no avocado or tomato. I’m cool with that.
Coffee was good, they had iced coffee on tap and my husband had three cups. Which worked out great because caffeine and shopping mix really well, in case you didn’t know. Makes a person want to buy everything!
Modern Grove serves lunch and dinner, has a happy hour and lots of drink choices.
