As part of our Friday Guest Blogger Series, Kris' sister-in-law Jen will be telling us all about her awesome experience at forkheartknife! I've never been there, but after reading this I definitely want to try it! Thanks, Jen!!
I had a lot of trouble deciding between the pizza strata which was something I had never had before, and the breakfast burrito. Both sounded great but I asked Sierra (who is the waitress, hostess, cashier, and sometimes bus girl) and she said that I had to get the strata. I was glad that I did! It is made mostly from egg but you would never know because it took on an almost doughy consistency. It was filled with cheese and tomatoes and if I closed my eyes I could have sworn I was eating a piece of pizza. I really enjoyed it and the strata also came with a salad but I didn’t touch much of it!
As a side we also got a plate of red potatoes. I honestly don’t remember what all went into these potatoes but they were really good, and half of them went into the to-go box as well. All in all we got 2 entrees, the yogurt, coffee cake, potatoes and two coffees and our bill was $32. I did not think that was bad for stuffing three girls for brunch!
Overall, I enjoyed my experience at forkheartknife. It was a cozy, intimate atmosphere that was different from most of the places that I eat. They served interesting and heart felt food and you can taste the love they put in everything they do. I like their story-having been affected by cancer in my life I appreciate their willingness to take a risk and do what they love. Now for the bad news-they’re closing up shop. They have decided not to renew their lease because they have gotten too big for their little space! So, if you want to try it out you better act fast. They are open for Thursday dinner and Saturday and Sunday brunch. They will have more seating outside when it is warm and they also do carryout. If you do decide to go, take your own beer and take cash!
