Something Classic Catering and Cafes has moved its flagship store from The Villa on Providence Road to Dilworth. They relocated to their new store at Twin Oaks Shopping Center on East Boulevard a couple months ago.
With big, bright windows and wooden tables, the cafe is a cozy lunch spot. I felt like I was having lunch in someone's country kitchen.
The store features an outdoor patio seating area ( complete with a fountain), indoor seating, pre-made take-home meals, grab-and-go sandwiches and salads, meals made to order, baked goods like cakes, brownies, cookies and cupcakes, and lots of samples of their food. (Today's samples included banana bread, raspberry cake, and pumpkin bread.)
Sandwich varieties go beyond your regular meat and cheese, and they sell for a reasonable price. It was $6.95 for their Chicken Tarragon sandwich on wheat bread and a slice of carrot cake was $4.32.
"Evenings on the Patio" run every Wednesday through Saturday night from 5 to 9 pm. The event inclues live music, a tasting plate menu of antipasto, dips and salads, and drinks by the glass and bottle.
Sunday brunch is featured every week from 11 am to 3 pm. Their Dilworth Sunday French Toast stuffed with cream cheese and topped with fruit and maple syrup sounds pretty good. ... But what sounds even better is their 95-cent orange pineapple mimosas.
