Broadway Diner Desserts

Located a couple blocks from the Fayetteville square in Georgia, a popular local restaurant is packed with diners every night of the week. At Broadway Diner, it’s not uncommon to see folks waiting outside for a seat, even in the middle of the week. Usually the wait isn’t any longer than twenty or thirty minutes, but that’s an indication of something. There must be something people find special about this place. After all, it is a diner, and people wait here like they would for the big chain restaurants.

Because of their exceptional gluten-free options, you will probably see a future review here on their meal options, but for today it’s just about the desserts.

Broadway Diner has a single dessert case that isn’t large at all. Fortunately, that doesn’t stop them from stuffing it with huge cakes and pies offering some of the most incredible flavors around. My wife and I stopped in after dinner to pick up a couple slices to bring home for dessert. Just like Frank’s at the Old Mill, the portions here are quite large, and to top it off, they’re only $5.95 a slice!

Comprehensive Review: City Cafe, Part 2

For this brief second installment of the comprehensive City Cafe review, I will cover some treats I picked up after a late breakfast at Highland Bakery. You can read the first review here. City Cafe is open every day except Sunday. They have separate hours for the bakery and the restaurant, so check their hours before visiting. It’s all one room as shown before, the difference being whether the kitchen is open or not.

On this day they serve lunch between 11:00 am and 2:30 pm, and the bakery remains open until 4:00 pm. I arrived just thirty minutes before closing.

Comprehensive Review: City Cafe, Part 1

Since moving to the Fayetteville, GA area, I’ve had a couple opportunities to sample some treats from City Cafe. This cafe features German cuisine, and also embodies a fantastic bakery case. This will be my first comprehensive review of a restaurant. The plan is to eventually try everything available from their menu and bakery case, along with providing as much information about the location, owners, food, and atmosphere that I can. This will be a several month venture, but an enjoyable one. In order to not overwhelm you, I will spread the many smaller articles out, and intermix them with other reviews.

The Melting Pot

For my third review, I wanted to go a step further than just the food, and move towards doing reviews on the entire restaurant. While this one may not go as far as I’d eventually like to get, it’s a move in the right direction.

I have visited the melting pot, a fondue restaurant, many times in the past. I probably eat here at least every quarter. I more recently started going to the Roswell, GA location and this will have been third time here. Continue reading The Melting Pot
