Tomato Pie Cafe is of course famous for their delicious, flavorful slices of tomato pie. However, they are also known for their monthly specials. The staff here at FLL anticipates the release of their innovative specials as each month passes.
January at Tomato Pie Cafe brings lots of chocolate, spice, and a couple delicious surprises. If you’re looking for something hot to warm your belly and soul, try their Turtle Hot Chocolate, Brown Sugar Latte, or Dirty Almond Chai. I personally always crave ice cream and milkshakes more in the winter than any other time of the year, so their special Peppermint Milkshake is lookin’ pretty darn delicious to me!
January inspires all of us to bake and fill our home with warmth and cozy aromas. Tomato Pie’s Banana Walnut Chocolate Chip Baked Oatmeal is quite the mouthful (pun totally intended). This decadent dish is made with none other than Wilbur Chocolate! You should also try their savory Parmesan Pesto Scone, with a kick of garlic. Their Lemon Curd and Poppyseed Muffin is filled with lemon curd and will melt your heart.
Two particular items which immediately caught my eye were the Strawberry and Beet Jam Waffle, and the Sriracha Turkey Burger. The waffle is served all day long and is slathered with a homemade strawberry and beet jam and garnished with a dusting of yummy powdered sugar which looks like the pretty snow we experienced this week! The turkey burger is doused with homemade sriracha-lime aioli, and includes roasted red peppers, goat cheese, and spinach. You can choose a pickle and either chips or greens or a salad on the side.
Oooo, January just got so much better!
