Flower Farm Coffeehouse
Not only does the Flower Farm Coffeehouse, located at the Flower Farm Nursery, sell coffee and pastries; it also offers an ever-changing choice of sandwiches, soup and homemade desserts along with Cheesecake Factory cheesecake. The vegetarian sandwich was delicious, but not too filling. A chewy, whole grain bread added nuttiness to each bite. With the sandwich came a choice of fresh seasonal fruit - sliced apples, persimmons and mandarins this time- or tortilla chips. I also ordered one of their Italian sodas and had them blend it. The pomegranate syrup added to soda water made for a refreshing, but not too sweet drink. I topped the lunch off with a piece of homemade German chocolate cake. Delicious! The Flower Farm Coffeehouse is located on the corner of Horseshoe Bar and Auburn Folsom roads. They open on Mon. - Sat. at 6:30 a.m. and on Sun. at 8 a.m. Closing times may vary with the season.
