Dandylyon's Garden Now at Potager Cafe
Jake and I were out at Potager Cafe's 3rd annversary open house on Saturday. Cynthia (the cafe's owner) was kind enough to lend us a bookcase to do our display. Doesn't it look great?
If you're local to the Arlington, Texas area, and you've never been to Potager, you should definately check it out. They do a chalk board menu featuring whatever Cynthia bought fresh at the Arlington Farmer's Market, and rather than give you huge servings on a pre-made plate, you ask the chef for the amount you think you will eat, and you pay for the value you feel you have recieved. I've never gotten anything there that hasn't been amazing. I talked to one of the chefs, who said she used to be the head pastry chef at the Modern, so of course the desserts are wonderful.
Plus, there's a new reason to head out. Potager is expanding across the street (if you've been in Arlington for a while, it's the location that used to be Coffee Haus) onto what will be called Potager's Other Stuff. They open offically some time next week. In addition to coffee and home-made pastries, they're going to sell used books, organic groceries, and aromatherapy products. AND -- drum roll please -- they are going to have herbal crafts from Dandylyon's Garden. So far, it is just a smattering of products, but if you run out there and snap them up, I'm sure they will decide to carry more. So far they have drier sachets and sleep pillows. Plus, they will be carrying the quilt-front garden aprons. Yeah!
