Each day is what you make of it. If you choose to look for the good you will always find something awesome.
Our day started out with some fantastic food, thanks to Instagram. After posting some pictures the other day I went the notifications area and checked out each one of our followers. I came across Coco Fairfield’s and was intrigued by their pictures. I noticed a few things hinting to gluten-free foods…
After checking out their clearly marked Menu I knew it was a place we should eat, soon.
Coco Fairfield’s is easy to find on 12 Mile Road in Berkley. When we entered there was a counter space, utensil decorated lighting, a wall of clocks, and other eclectice art. There was a lot to look at, but nothing too overwhelming. I was a fan of all the quotes and “feel good” sayings.
Our group was rather large this morning so two tables needed to be pushed together. (Thank you, to the gentleman sitting by himself, that kindly swiched tables to accomodate us.) After being seated our server took our drink orders. Mr. GFDM asked about a gluten-free menu and we were told, “everything on the menu can be made gluten free, except the mac-n-cheese dishes.” (Woot! Woot!)
The hardest part about a restruarant like this is choosing one dish. While checking out the menu the owner stepped out and asked us about eating gluten free. He informed us that they use seperate toasters and take measures to assure that there are no cross-contamination problems. We also learned that their soups are gluten free too. In the summer they do gespatcho and warms soups in the winter.
We ended up with Pancakes, Stanford Stuffed French Toast, Pastrami Hash with toast and jam, and Shrimp Gazpacho.
There was not one bit of food left on a plate. The serving size was just right. The prices were average, even with the gluten free bread up charge of $2.00. We were very pleased and comfortably full.
On the way out we grabbed a coffee for the road and then walked along 12 Mile to visit the local shops in the area. There are quite a few gift shops, music stores, and salons making a trip to Berkley well worth your time.
We will be visiting Coco Fairfield’s again soon.
