Greenstreet Cafe, Coconut Grove

Ashley and I’s first attempt at a cooking class at UM was a bit of a disaster.  Apparently there was a big UM game that night and there was no parking…anywhere.  We were told by the UM team that we would either have to keep driving around (we were already 15-20 minutes late because of traffic) or park almost a mile away.  Even then, it wasn’t guaranteed we’d find parking.  Is this really how they treat their customers?  I won’t be going back for any of their cooking classes as they weren’t very helpful about refunding us or finding us a place to park.  We paid $25 for nothing.

End of my rant.  On to the better part of the evening: We ended up in Coconut Grove at The Greenstreet Cafe.  I’ve been here for brunch and have been very happy with their options.  For dinner, I ordered a delicious Fig Salad and some tasty truffle fries- I have a thing for them and I know the fries kind of cancel out the salad but I was going for taste, not health.  The best part of the meal was what Ashley ordered but I’ll let her describe it in her more elaborate way with words so she can do it justice.

California Pizza Kitchen for Veggies

I’m sure our savvy-er readers will already know this but California Pizza Kitchen has quite a few vegetarian options on their menu.  They are also extremely family friendly and won’t break the bank.

My favorite part is that they have this little menu with “smaller” portions at a lower cost.  You can get two small portions meals for about $9 (which helps you not have to choose just one item)!

I had the Grilled Vegetable Sandwich and Tortilla soup- which was amazing.  The sandwich was not my absolute favorite; I thought it could be a little more flavorful but it was still really good and tastes great reheated in the oven.  Afterwards we shared the buttercake which had: a layer of sugar crystals on the bottom, the buttercake and then a layer of cheesecake which was topped off with a scoop of ice cream.  Delicious and perfect for a table of four to share and not feel guilty (starting to really love sharing deserts!).

I am really looking forward to trying some more fare at CPK soon!
