Desert Rose Café Review
If you’re in Ontario, Canada you’ve heard the phrase ‘It’s worth the drive to Acton’ which refers to The Hide House, leather clothing, furniture, accessories, etc. Well, I’ve found a café which is worth the drive to Elora.
The Desert Rose was the highlight of the weekend. Yes, the food was that totally awesome!
I had a bean burger. I am not vegetarian or vegan anything but I think that burger was probably the best burger I’ve ever had! It was plump and juicy and just totally delicious. My boyfriend even bought one to bring home for his supper it was so good, lol.
My boyfriend had their quiche. I think his eyes actually glazed over because it was so good.
The interior of the café has a homey feel and the seating is unique; it’s harvest seating. Most of their tables sit ten or twelve with a couple which seat two. You come in and take a seat wherever there’s space whether someone’s already sitting at the table or not.
Click their menu to see their options. It is a .jpg.
Most of The Desert Rose’s menu items have the option for gluten and dairy free but it is all at least vegetarian and some have the option for vegan.
We only saw two staff but they were fast and efficient. I think the one who took our order was the chef/cook since we didn’t see her again once we ordered and other customers started trickling in.
They also have a cookbook with their most popular recipes. Naturally, since we liked what we had SO much we bought a copy.
How awesome is that?!
The price was about average for a good meal. It was about $45 for the quiche, and two burgers and a Blue Sky soda.
We will definitely be going back again and again and again.
