MONDAY FOOD POST - THE FIREFLY CAFE IN WINCHESTER

When we met our son last week, he took us to a new restaurant.  He had been there several times on his trips to Winchester.  Therefore, no recipe today except to a link to one we are thinking of making soon.  It is a meatloaf recipe by The Barefoot Contessa.

I read: "Firefly Café and Bakery is owned and operated by NW Works, which is a non-profit dedicated to empowering individuals through meaningful employment."  

This link will give you more information.  The menu can be read here.

I don't receive anything other than the pleasure I get passing along a place we enjoy. It has excellent reviews on Yelp and you can read those here.
This is the address to the organization mentioned above. 
I enjoyed the wall art.
Also this one.
and this one.
We were there for the breakfast.
The three of us ordered an omelet (hubs) and ricotta pancakes (son and me). They were delicious and that bacon was the best I had tasted in any restaurant.
To top everything off the staff were nice and friendly. 

Great company, great conversation, comfortable surroundings and excellent food.  We are looking forward to going back and yes, highly recommended!

    1. The name really catches people's interest. The food is why yes but their mission to help people is a draw also. I would give them my business just because of this.
