"The Holidays." It's that time of year where
friends and family return to town and are increasingly intentional to reunite, reconnect and reminisce. Where are your favorite spots to meet an old friend?
Sweet Memories in Emmaus is my long-time favorite to meet a girl friend for a special lunch. Walking up the sidewalk of busy downtown Emmaus, the anticipation increases when greeted by the whimsical landscaping and outdoor trinkets. Stepping indoors is an equally intriguing atmosphere. Amidst numerous gift items are plenty of small tables. Each table is welcomed by an individual chalk board menu. The large room holds many small parties and includes the menu on a chalk board wall.
The menu is ample and diverse with many healthy, lite fare items. My preference is the "pick 2"--I look forward to one of the delicious soups (like pumpkin mushroom wild rice) and salads (baby spinach with apples, walnuts and a poppyseed dressing). Of course it must be accompanied by one of their many hot or cold teas....the selection is a tea lover's dream! The warm atmosphere, hospitality and tasty foods give you a feeling of home.
Finally, the homemade dessert selection is enticing. Save room to end the meal.
Because of its popularity, reservations are recommended if not necessary. This local gem is sure to make any gathering with a friend an extra special outing.
