This month’s farm highlight is actually not on a specific farm, but on a restaurant that uses ingredients from many local farms to deliver farm-fresh, locally-sourced prepared food! It’s Laney & Lu Cafe.
If you have ever been there, or even just seen photos from them online, you know that everything they serve is packed with color! Above was what I thought would be a simple breakfast sandwich — and of course it blew me away with its creativity, artful presentation, and flavor-packed goodness. It’s the Kale Yeah.
It was as good as it looks — nay, better! There’s really a big difference when a place prioritizes getting fresh and local food. The (local!) goat cheese was so good, the egg fresh and yummy, and the tomato and the sauce added just enough moisture that it was almost dribbling down my chin as I ate. The bread was really something else, too.It came from Jessica’s Brick Oven, which is available around the region.
If you think it’s important to eat local, support places like Laney & Lu which get their food locally sourced. Just a few other restaurants who work hard to source from our local farms are: Flatbread Pizza, Black Trumpet, Stages at One Washington, 7th Settlement and Blue Moon Evolution.
