The Loft @ Trader’s Point Creamery

Service: Very friendly and quick. I was surprised by how fast our food arrived, and the kitchen divided the salad onto separate plates for easier sharing.

Booze: Sustainable wines, local and organic beers.

Food:

Beet salad | roasted organic beets, baby spinach, fromage blanc, candied walnuts & house balsamic vinaigrette $ 12

Grilled cheese | blend of raw milk cheeses grilled on Amelia’s city loaf with one topping {avocado, bacon, mushrooms, spinach, grilled onions or bell peppers} and choice of side $ 9

Quinoa cakes | quinoa, sweet potato, spinach, sun-dried tomato, quark cheese, pan fried and drizzled with roasted red and yellow bell pepper sauce and choice of side $ 14

Spicy mac n’ cheese | $ 4 substitution charge

A balance of earthy roasted beets and spinach with sweet, creamy cheese and candied walnuts and homemade balsamic vinaigrette provided a delightful awakening for the palate. {Of course I sampled the mouth-orgasmic homemade ranch as well. Drool.} Melted between two slices of crunchy bread, the raw milk cheese had a subtle nuttiness that was complimented by avocado like a match made in food heaven. And have you ever seen such picture perfect specimens of asparagus?! MM. They’ve also perfected the art of quinoa patties… nicely pan fried with soft but firm, not crumbly, insides. Pepperjack mac was a wicked companion to the cakes’ red and yellow pepper sauce, and the serving was HUGE. I would honestly prefer half the amount for half the up-charge; we shared and still required a to-go box. For a side? That shit cray.

Kudos: Farm-to-table and organic seasonal menu with fresh produce grown, grass-fed livestock raised, and artisan cheeses aged on site.

Overall: Love love love. The food is a bit pricey, but you have to appreciate that you’re eating food from the land you stand on. If you do, it’s worth all the pennies! If $9 is too steep for a gourmet grilled cheese with ripe avocado and plump, tender asparagus, stay home and melt some kraft singles on wonder bread.
