Like being home again…
The exterior of Flight of Fancy is quirky yet homey. Even among the wintry landscape you can tell the owner has a green thumb with all the bushes, trees, and flower pots filling the front yard. Swinging the door open, the aroma of fresh baked muffins, cookies, and a plethora of other tantalizing treats takes over our senses. Signs decorate the interior giving you guidance on what you should and shouldn’t do if you actually have any manners. We glance over the mouthwatering items in the display case as we approach the counter. Croissants, muffins, and all sorts of baked goods filled to the brim. We finally focus on the task at hand and order breakfast. The quiche sounds good, but another item on the menu really catches our “fancy.” Baked Oatmeal?!
Baked Oatmeal – The greatest oatmeal you’ll EVER have
Susan Dorris, the owner, is manning the register and gives us the scoop on the oatmeal. It’s not your typical oats in a bowl. First, it NEVER touches the stove. Second, the oats soak for an entire day. And finally, the oats bake in the oven! This sounds so interesting we had to try it. It’s hearty, crunchy, AND healthy. The texture is more like crunchy cereal meets rice (if that makes sense) and the flavors are amazing. A DEFINITE must try even if you’re not an oatmeal person. If you just can’t get past the “oatmeal” moniker, then the Quiche is another great option. It’s juicy packed with spinach, artichoke, onions & TONS of cheese but with enough egg to hold all the wonderful ingredients together.
Huckleberry Almond Croissant & a Cappuccino
With a sweet tooth, I couldn’t pass up having one of the pastries but the question was what? Susan goes through all the items and the one that calls out to me is the Huckleberry Almond Croissant. Crunchy and flaky outside yet jam packed with almond paste inside, you taste how fresh the ingredients are! I knew I was in for a treat with the cappuccino when Susan asked us if I wanted it “Dry or wet?” I like my cappuccino wet not to be confused with my love for dry snow. Definitely the best cappuccino of the trip. With our stomachs full, we said farewell and thanked her for the amazing meal.
