You will LOVE your Cafe Zupas experience! Here's what I experienced:
At the door, you will be handed a paper menu, with lots of choices ~
I love how you can individualize your meal (no tomatoes, please) and that they have a kid-friendly menu.
This sign speaks to the great service at Zupas ... their staff was very friendly and courteous!
Not only does Zupas have crunchy salads and hot soups, they have many decadent desserts to choose from ...
Every meal comes with a complimentary crust slice of bread and a chocolate dipped strawberry!
I ordered the Honey Bacon Club grilled panini sandwich with a Shanghai Chicken salad.
I loved the sandwich salty/sweet flavor combo of turkey, bacon, ham, Muenster cheese and honey mustard dressing.
Zupa's salads are always perfect. I hate it when my salad has way too much dressing, overpowering the taste of the other ingredients, and leaving a soupy, watery mess in the bottom of my bowl. At Zupas, they mix the right amount of dressing with the salad greens in a separate bowl, return the mix to your serving bowl and top it with your requested ingredients.
Hubby ordered the Thai Lobster Curry soup and the California Turkey sandwich.
The soup was a unique blend of lobster, Thai spices and coconut milk, lending a not-too-spicy, yet exotic taste. The sandwich was perfect for my husband, who loves avocados and Ranch dressing on a hearty roll.
No meal is complete without trying dessert!
My husband picked out his favorite rich and creamy cheesecake.
Me? My eyes were fixed on this Million Dollar Bar....reminiscent of the seven layer bars that I grew up with ... only much larger in size!
Is your mouth watering yet? I'm getting hungry!
