Take the Cake also posts its daily changing menu on its twitterstream, which is both good and bad. It's good because yesterday morning, when the menu was posted, David and I thought it sounded delicious and headed over to Northside.
It is bad because during the week when we are stuck in the office, the delicious items practically jump up and down, cruelly taunting us.
We walked into Take the Cake and ordered the top four items on the menu (out of five.) Yes, we were little piggies. But we regret nothing.
We ordered the buttermilk biscuit, which is usually featured on Saturdays, which was served with asparagus, poached egg, lemon aioli and ham, a cup of minestrone soup, chicken salad on flat bread with Gorgonzola, pecans and bacon, and the local tomato salad with fresh mozzarella, bacon, and balsamic vinaigrette dressing.
We don't know where those tomatoes came from, but whoever grows them must have some sort of voodoo tomato growing magic. They are the best tomatoes that we've ever had.
I really liked my minestrone. David said it was the only minestrone he had ever had that he actually liked. It was a little spicy, which we both enjoyed. The biscuits are indeed flaky, buttery and delicious.
David loved his poached egg and I almost thought he was going to start licking the empty plate after he devoured it. We'll be back!
