On Saturday two of my friends from San Jose were in town. Sarah and Brian drove down the night before for their pal's housewarming party. We decided to meet up for lunch and it was my task to find a "cute spot" to blog about! I'm glad Sarah keeps me accountable.
But where to go? Little known sandwich spot? Somewhere on Alvarado? Hit up the municipal wharf?
A few weeks ago, my friend Maren wrote a review of Wild Plum Cafe and Bakery after she had lunch there with her bf Max. I hadn't ever seen the Wild Plum Cafe, hadn't heard about it, but oh man - based on her pictures, I definitely had to file it away in my "gotta try" list. So, when I met up with Sarah and Brian for lunch, the Wild Plum was the place to go!
I'm a big fan of Yelp. I don't really ever write reviews, but I love reading them. Before texting Sarah and Kyle (yep - he met us there) the address, I quickly looked at what Yelpers had to say. Cons: unprofessional, stressed owner, understaffed. Oh Phooey! They don't know anything.
Sarah went with the full sesame chicken salad.
Everything was delicious! There were about 5 or 6 things on the menu that I still want to try, so I'll have to come back someday.
