Out And About (#3),Whirlwind Saturday by Erik Willis

Foodie Erik Willis gets out and about, on a whirlwind Saturday, to grab some food a 3 different restaurants, better his health, and engage spiritually. (And if you like these columns from Erik, let him know. Local and small businesses are being sought for sponsorship.)

Off to Breakfast In Peterborough

Today I ventured west to begin my weekend foodie adventure. I started at Beepa and Lulus on 202 and headed towards the hospital. I had a country-style Eggs Benny with some really great fresh home fries with onions. The meal was fantastic, and the service was top-notch despite being very busy. Prices were what one would expect. They are open every day from 7-2 except Sunday when they are open until 1 and Tuesday when they are closed. For my own information and to share I discovered that they offer Bfast until 11:15, meaning you can order it until then.

From there I ventured further west and ended up landing at the Black Forest Cafe in Bedford, New Hampshire, which is a wonderful spot with a bakery on one side and a dining room on the other. I had Italian Veggie Soup with some very tasty cheese crackers for dipping and then a salad with blue cheese chicken grilled shrimp and bacon. All of the food was great except the chicken wasn’t grilled and it was a bit dry. I also received some complimentary goodies that were more than enough to satisfy my sweet tooth which was nice. The prices were a bit high for my liking, but I was in Bedford, so I understand the logic.

After I was seated, the customer service was great. My recommendation is to tell the host you are waiting to be seated, or you might wait longer than you need to. They are open 8 am to 6 pm 7 days a week and offer takeout from 11-3 most days except Wednesday until 6 and Saturday from 8-3 and on Sunday when no takeout is offered. Lastly, they are open for Brunch on both Saturday and Sunday from 11-3 and 8-2:30, respectively.

Whirlwind Saturday, Part 3

My last stop of the day I went to The Pressed Cafe in the New Bedford location. I had the Jerusalem Mezze Plate, which was fantastic. The calling card of this establishment is very healthy and clean eating that is also reasonably priced. The dining room is very spacious, and the customer service was excellent as well. When I see how The Pressed Cafe operates, I see how every establishment should strive to be run. They are open from 5 am-10 pm 7 days a week which is amazing! I highly recommend that everyone goes to the Pressed Cafe when they are in the area.

After dinner, a friend and I went to a worship service in Pepperill Massachusetts which was excellent. In a world of chaos and uncertainty having the spiritual anchor of Jesus Christ certainly makes the journey more worthwhile. Okay, that’s all for this edition. Stay tuned for more editions about food adventure and the life and love that God offers to all.

Until next time this is Erik Willis signing off.

I definitely will be out and about!
