Pickled Peach – Local Restaurant Review

Recently, I visited another excellent eating spot in Davidson, NC, called Pickled Peach. It’s a small restaurant, café, and market where you can find artisan foods and a menu created with locally sourced ingredients. It 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. Indeed, a southern must. The sandwich was carefully constructed 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. The restaurant placed the food on metal trays, 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 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 simple white earthenware. I am 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 in the back. I detect these things because I make my kombucha at home, and to me, that stuff is liquid gold.

There were local eggs, beets, cultured butter, organic blueberries, and chocolate chip cookie dough, among some other items. Yum!

Pickled Peach is how all American supermarkets should look. A deep sigh here.

Finally, I thought that the staff was amiable 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 ceramic plate. I was kidding! Ok – only to take a good picture.
