Picnic at Camp Hill
I hate that dilemma where a dish like muesli or yogurt sounds appealing, but you’ve got a slightly raging appetite that morning and know that a bowl of nuts and oats just ain’t gonna cut it.
Enter: the side dish.
That’s right folks, I solved this problem that has plagued breakfast diners for eons: order a side of haloumi to go with your muesli.
In this case, it was the Pecan and Almond Granola ($11.90) from Picnic in Camp Hill. I know what you’re thinking, does haloumi go with granola? Are you crazy? It’s haloumi. It goes with air.
After scoffing my two very delicious slabs of salty haloumi, I tackled my cute little jar of granola, yogurt, and fruit:
The granola (more like a muesli) was really tasty, but it needed more yogurt, or even a little bottle of milk on the side.
Meanwhile D was smacking the Picnic Big Breakfast ($16.90):
That groaning plate is filled with fried chicken, eggs, ham hock baked beans, pan fried kale, and rye toast. The ham hock baked beans were the best – and who says you can’t have fried chicken at breakfast time? Not Paula Deen, that’s for sure.
We also had a coffee each, which were excellent – very impressive considering there was just one lone barista pumping out drinks in the busy cafe!
Picnic is a very cute cafe with good service, solid dishes, and of course – a great assortment of side dishes.
