Sometimes at work, the ladies in the department want to go to a restaurant we affectionately call “the tree place.” My brother says it’s to restaurants what chick lit is to books.
Well, Saturday we (me, Connie, Kelli and girls) went to another chick lit restaurant: Emerson Creek Pottery and Tearoom.
One fun characteristic is how it is hidden in a frame of cornfields, and you forget you’re surrounded by subdivisions.
The tearoom menu changes each week, but they always have their signature dish – the flowerpot salad which is raspberries, cheese, etc. in an actual pot. Connie and I both had the salad (delicious) and Kelli had a cheese sandwich with pears in it – which she also said was good.
You can wander around the pottery gift shop where they have pottery (that’s convenient) and other charming gift-type items.
A quick way to escape and feel like you’re far away on vacation.
