Genesee Depot Cafe

Just minutes from Ten Chimneys, we had a delightful lunch in the downtown area at the Genesee Depot Cafe, an eclectic yet cozy diner with a menu for all tastes. Taken over in  June 2009 by Tina and Jason Heinonen, the husband and wife team see that the kitchen turns out well-made traditional as well as unusual fare.

My brother-in-law, a vegan, ordered a vegetable sandwich with avocado. My husband was in seventh heaven with a real chocolate shake, a BLT and fries. I was somewhere in the dietary middle with chicken lime soup, turkey on basil tomato bread and cucumber and lime in my water. Who would even consider eating at a chain fast food place?

We ordered frozen pasties (meat pies) and peach crisp to go. They even supplied ice to keep our food cool until Chicago. When we had dinner later that evening, the pastry crust and filling were absolutely just like grandma would make, if granny were a really good cook.
