    The great home cooking at The Chocolate Spoon shows that having a love for making food comes through in the end. Eva, the owner and chef, creates a nice variety of menu items all with quality ingredients. The chicken salad sandwich on fresh croissant to the fresh fruit and daily specials of roast beef or a hearty potato soup all reflect the love that goes into creating these dishes.

    For the vegetarians, or heck, for anyone, the vegetable lasagna is one of the house specialties and a local favorite. Created with layers of garden veggies, three cheese, alfredo sauce, marinara sauce and served with parmesan and a side salad and homemade Italian bread, its a win-win. The sumptuous layering and rich sauces over the vegetables create a magnificent medley in your mouth that you will crave.

    Not up for lasagna?? Try the chicken salad croissant. Made fresh with all white meat and using fresh thyme and grapes, this sandwich is filling, yet not too heavy. Lightly toasted and served with fresh fruit, you cannot go wrong. The thyme offers a nice surprise in the salad which the grapes offer a bit of sweet surprise.

    Follow your meal with a tough decision, the hot fudge cake or the chocolates. Most of the desserts come from old family recipes, passed down through the generations. I would suggest the hot fudge cake for after lunch with a box of chocolates for later!
