We checked out The Provision Shop at Everton Park last week. It’s just a short walk from where we got off the bus over at SGH and is quite accessible. When we got there, it was lunch time and the place was packed!
We ordered one of Belinda’s Perogis: a homemade Polish dumpling filled with Ricotta cheese and mashed potatoes topped with sour cream, bacon and chives. I liked the flavours! Anya didn’t really want to eat it because of the chives (she’s anti-vegetables) so I didn’t have to share. The Reuben Sandwich was pretty good too but I found it a bit too salty towards the end. The coleslaw that came with the sandwich was appetising.
The only thing I wasn’t too happy about was when I ordered a root beer float and the server brought me the root beer and ice-cream separately because they were out of vanilla ice-cream and only had blackforest which, according to the server, would not taste good in the root beer.
Since I wanted a drink and not a dessert, the ice-cream sat melting on the table, uneaten. I asked for the ice-cream to be taken off the bill and they were very nice about it so that was good.
The highlight for Anya was the senior citizens fitness corner beside the cafe. While she’s obviously not part of the target group, she had lots of fun with all the equipment there after our meal!
