I’m hoping it becomes routine, trying out new (to us) places around NEPA. In an area where chain restaurants often reign supreme, there are so many sweet little “off-the-beaten-path” places to uncover. First, we enjoyed State Street Grill. Next, we finally (I’ve been wanting to go for months, after a friend recommended it to me) hit up Canteen 900. It was the original plan for our “Sun-Date,” but it turns out Canteen 900 isn’t open on Sundays. So Saturday lunch with my boy? Don’t mind if I do.
The atmosphere is excellent. One large room with white walls, chandeliers and light fixtures hanging from the ceiling, mismatched tables and chairs, great music in the background, and a lot of natural light. As soon as I stepped into the hallway before the restaurant (it’s in a big factory building that holds lots of different businesses), I was in love. Exposed brick, tiny tables, chalkboard paint, strange art.
And let’s not forget the food. The menu has a lot of great options. Unfortunately, breakfast is only served until 11:30 am and we missed that. But we didn’t miss out on their special of the day, which happened to be a Big Bad Brunch sandwich (Buttermilk Fried Chicken topped w/ Fried Eggs, Hashbrowns, Smoked Gouda, & Honey Drizzle on Texas Toast) with homemade potato chips. Needless to say, it was amazing.
As for beverages, Brad enjoyed their House Blend coffee and I sipped on a Salted Caramel Latte. So. Good.
There are quite a few other places we want to check out in the near future, but I already can’t wait to head back to Canteen 900, bring some friends with us, and taste as much as possible! What a seriously great place, and a great way to kick off my Saturday.
