Recently I visited another cool eating spot in Davidson, NC called Pickled Peach.  It’s a small restaurant, café and market where you can find artisan foods and menu created with locally sourced ingredients. Sounds like heaven to me because I love eating local!

I felt very comfortable ordering food from Pickled Peach. Everything on the list of options looked fresh and enticing. I couldn’t resist and ordered a BLT made with fried green tomato. Certainly, a southern must. The sandwich was carefully made and tasted fresh. The bacon was delicious, and the sour-dough toast was light and crispy. I enjoyed every bite!

This establishment is a no-frills type of café, with self-order at the counter, and waiter delivery to table. Your food is placed on metal trays, with silverware on the tray, and a white, cloth napkin next to it. I thought the cloth napkin was a nice touch.

I wasn’t sure what to think of the metal tray. I think I would prefer to eat my sandwich off a ceramic plate. To me esthetics is everything. I always eat with my eyes first. The sandwich was so pretty, and well-made that it would look even more enticing if served on a simple white earthenware. Just saying Pickled Peach…I do mean well.

In front of the ordering station, I noticed a fridge with locally sourced and homemade goodies. After I took my picture, I spotted bottled kombucha, hidden all the way in the back. I detect these things because I make my own kombucha at home, and to me that stuff is liquid gold. Among some other items, there were local eggs, beets, cultured butter, organic blueberries and chocolate chip cookie dough. Yum! This is how all American supermarkets should look like. A deep sigh here…

Finally, I thought that the staff was very friendly and attentive. Being a spoiled New Yorker, I appreciate that stuff very much. The café’s atmosphere was family oriented and positively unpretentious.

I will be back for sure, maybe even with my own ceramic plate. Just kidding! Ok – only to take a good picture.
