I love catching up with Lindsay, we seem to always end up meeting up at fun restaurants for our "dates" as we've coined them and Uptown Cafeteria was no different. As you can probably guess, it's supposed to be like an old fashioned diner or cafeteria and has padded, very comfortable seats, lunch trays you can buy to take home (not sure why you would), and lots of interesting menu choices for breakfast, lunch, happy hour and dinner.
I have to say, Uptown Cafeteria was delicious, I wish I would have taken more pictures of our food. Here are our delicious drinks: a Raspberry Cosmo and a Blood Orange Mimosa, YUM!
For dinner we split the Grilled Chicken Lettuce Wraps and the Summer Veggies Pasta that came with squash, zucchini, red onions, mixed with olive oil and feta cheese, delicious!
But, the highlight of our meal was splitting the Red Velvet cake for dessert. Holy Moly, this was the best Red Velvet cake I've ever had in my life. At $9.95 a slice, it was huge and could easily feed a table of four. It came with strawberry ice cream, and fresh strawberries as well. It had thick cream cheese frosting, and the cake was wonderfully moist. I really wish I would have taken a picture of this beauty, but Lindsay and I were so entranced in gabbing, in between huge bites, that I completely forgot to pull out my camera.
