We visited Tupelo's Bakery in Monticello this week. That's Monticello Florida, not Virginia. Tupelo's is an organic bakery serving up amazing offerings of freshly baked pastries, breads, sandwiches and quiche. What a place!
It's laid back and you can sit and enjoy lunch or a pastry or just hang out, enjoying small town living with no one bustling about, nobody is in a rush, no shouting. I love it. First I'll tell you about the food but then check out the Full Moon Farm store attached.
Ok, here's lunch, check out the Deluxe Pizza Panini: Ham and pepperoni layered up with sauteed mushrooms, roasted red peppers, olives, mozzarella and parmigiano cheeses, with Italian herbs and our homemade tomato sauce. Leave the meats off for a great veggie option! Whole $8.00 Half $4.50
Pity I didn't get a clear shot of this sandwich. It was amazing. It honestly did taste like a pizza.
The quiche is very filling, This one is prosciutto, Gouda and green onion. There are many other varieties available, all freshly baked. This photo doesn't do it justice,it was honestly a huge slice.
Desserts are plentiful and it's very difficult to make a choice. We opted to split a triple chocolate brownie and oh my, it was rich and moist and everything you could want if you are a brownie lover.
The Full Moon Farm store is attached to the bakery, it's inside the shop. You can buy honey, candles, crafts and a variety of hand made items.
Here is a seed exchange.
Handmade items make great gifts. I love the quality of the things they sell.
This pottery is gorgeous. I plan to buy some one day and haul it home in the tour pack of the trike. Carefully packed of course.
This painting is one of many hanging on the walls if the restaurant area. Lots of paintings done by local artists, most are for sale. I was struck by the detail of this one. While we ate I kept glancing up at this one, noticing more detail each time, the brush strokes, the tiny hairs on the steer's chin. Looked better in person.
More vacation wanderings and eats coming up. Couldn't ride yesterday as it rained off on on all day long. We went out to dinner at Bonefish Grill in Tallahassee for our 32nd wedding anniversary though. Love our vacation week off!
