Sweet Clove Sunshine cafe review and giveaway !!!

I am not a breakfast person. Never have been. So when I was asked to review a brand new breakfast/ lunch restaurant, I was a little skeptical. I have been to those type of restaurants before. It's not like I didn't like them, I just wasn't impressed. Just being honest here, people.

But I went with another bloggy friend for lunch. I had just had the princess and I needed some much needed time out. We decided that we would try the new Sweet Clove Sunshine Cafe, which is owned by the Honey baked ham store. Its brand new and I like me some ham so we thought we would give it a shot.

The first thing I noticed when we sat down on a lovely terrace is that the menu that they handed me was the largest selection in a menu that I have seen in my life. And it wasn't just ham (although Honey baked ham entrees could be ordered. ) It was an extensive breakfast and lunch menu with many options and pictures that made my mouth water. I decided on the french dip served on rustic pan bread and a cup of the baked potato soup. It was excellent. (I wanted to lick the bowl, ok? )

I loved it so much that I asked my hubby to take me back for breakfast on my birthday! I had pineapple upside down pancakes that was as big as my head. (I especially liked when my lovely waitress brought out a huge bowl of freshly whopped cream and asked me if I would like some. Yes, please !!!!) Then we had the bacon.

My hubs is sort of a foodie and it takes alot to knock his socks off. He tasted the bacon and almost dropped his fork. Listen to me when I say, "This is the best bacon that you will ever taste. Period." Some genius decided to caramelize the bacon with the glaze they use on the Honey baked ham and they should win some type of award. :) Can you tell I liked it?!?!

So I liked it so much I had to share it with you. Click on the link above for the menu to see the awesome selection for yourself or the main website here. I have also been given a $25 gift card for a lucky reader. (Remember, you can always take me with you :) )

Just look at the menu and leave a comment telling me what you would order with your gift card. I will be choosing the winner next Wednesday! Good luck!!!!

Well, to start with… to drink I would have orange juice just because it’s $2 ¾. How cool is that. The HoneyBaked Supreme Omelette is definitely what I’d order. How could you not have the ham? Plus the potatoes that come with it- craved ‘em and ate ‘em every day of my pregnancy. And since I’ll probably have my two lovelies with me, throw in some extra bacon (since you said it’s so good), fruit and yogurt to make me feel like a better mom, and a big cup of coffee. We know I’ll be needing it.

You forgot the mention the cinnamon bread! If I had my choice, I would ask for some berries and just have the lady carrying around the giant bowl of fresh whipped cream heap it on.
