Delicious, healthy food highlights Jones lunch visit
Definitely my favorite place in Gainesville to eat... or at least up there with Satchel's and Civilization. :)
A quaint & unlikely place to find such delicious and healthy comfort food. Every time we have gone in, the faces of the wait staff & cooks are familiar. It is clear from listening to the friendly chatter that fills this small place that there are "regulars" who have a great relationship with the staff, who seem to know just what they want.
My husband Paul and I went there yesterday for lunch, and he got the special: Grass-fed Buffalo Burger with Avacado & Bacon with Home Fries. It was so big that he couldn't finish it. Photo top right.
I had a little taste and the meat was so fresh - you could tell that it was grass/grain-fed.
I opted for the Chicken Pesto Panini and Salad (including arugula & spinach) with Ginger Dressing. Photo top left.
The sandwich was filled with fresh grilled chicken, roasted red & yellow peppers, basil pesto, & melted provolone with sprouts I asked them to add.
It was more food than I could... or should eat; but I ate it all anyway. It was a warm, messy and absolutely soul-warming sandwich.
After stuffing ourselves with a hearty meal we didn't have room for desert, but since theirs taste like it came from Grandma's kitchen, we got the chocolate cupcake & lemon tart to go.
We just can't go there without getting one of their deserts. SO... if you find yourself super full - just grab it to go - you will be glad you did. :)
Blue Skies & Happy Eating!.
