Foggy Brews

 

After a few runs down the mountain at Seven Springs, or lets be honest one really, I am ready for a break. When I need to refuel on the mountain I head to the Foggy Brews  restaurant for craft beer and hand-crafted food creations. This place is seriously delicious, exactly what the resort needed. The menu has many delicious choices. So many I usually can’t decide and order too much food, falling into a sluggish food comma unable to return to the mountain… Oh well 🙂 this food is worth it!

Foggy Brews Bar

 

The bar area here is huge, featuring a 100ft bar top in a modern but rustic style, with shelves made from snowboards. There are of course plenty of beers on tap to choose from.

Out of all the fun starters on the menu, the crispy pickles are fulfilling, served with a BLT aioli. This pairing was surprising to me, as us Pittsburghers love our ranch dipping sauce, but it is a welcomed replacement.

My go to main dishes are the Bison Burger and or the Quattro Formaggi Grilled Cheese. The grilled cheese is very delicious, rich and buttery, so I would caution those eager to return to the slopes to indulge in this dish. but you might not be so ready after enjoying this dish of buttered sourdough, stuffed with four rich cheeses and served with truffle honey aioli, roasted tomato soup for dipping.

My Boyfriend enjoyed the Mushroom Barley with rich mushrooms, barley and vegetables simmered with a beef broth, topped with herbs.

Although the barman suggested the mussels, my BF who eats mussels regularly, did not enjoy the dish. Described as, “Fresh black mussels steamed in a Spicy Carrots broth, Andouille Sausage, Shallots,” he says he thought the sauce was weird and he craved a warm buttery sauce instead.

We also love to order the Bison Burger and the Fish Tacos. I really encourage you to try the Foggy Brews next time to head to Seven Springs. After a meal here you’ll need to revive yourself with a cup of coffee. Which come in the cutest vintage-inspired mugs.

Even if you aren’t working up an appetite on the slopes, its worth a visit. rainbow at Seven Springs Seven Springs

Terrain Garden Cafe, Glen Mills PA

Terrain Garden cafe is the intersection of greenery, rustic charm and delicious organic food.  Like Joanna Gaines’s sister somehow ended up just west of Philadelphia and opened a magical nursery, home decor shop, plus garden cafe. It’s a sweet little gem, oasis meet industrial chic, with mason jars and a BYOB added bonus.

I recently got the chance to meet up with my Boulder-hailing college girlfriend when we found ourselves in the same area over Thanksgiving. Terrain Garden Cafe was a place that my friend’s mother who lives locally suggested. It was so much more than I expected. Upon arrival we were greeted with fresh holiday garland, wreaths and tress in the greenhouse and nursery area.

The shop houses a quaint variety of Antropologie style home decor items.

We met for a late lunch. Being near the mushroom capital Kennett Square, I started with mushroom soup, followed by a meat & cheese board, called the Farmhouse Platter. The mushroom soup was smooth not chunky, but very flavorful.

The experience of shopping and dining in the same place was exciting. I couldn’t wait to eat, but I didn’t want to stop exploring the treasure in the shop. The place was ascetically beautiful each way I looked. I would love to return another time or explore the other locations as well.

Seven Springs Wine Fest

Seven Springs Wine Festival

I’ve spent the majority of weekends in my past two winters at Seven Springs Mountain Resort, conquering the slopes strapped to a board (aka struggling to keep a brave face and solider on down the mountain). So it was a refreshing experience to see the mountains that have tried me, green and flush with a much more appealing display of wine, at the Seven Springs Wine Fest!

The concept of this wine festival at Seven Springs is amazing. Seemingly endless wine samples from proud and welcoming wineries. There was just the right amount of vendors to explore, all PA wineries. They surprisingly all had multiple sweet options for me to enjoy. I learned that besides moscato, I also love wines made with Niagara, and concord grapes types as well as peach, raspberry and blackberry wines.

Seven Springs Wine Fest

The Seven Springs wine fest event is great to go to in groups of friends, there were a lot of big groups and bachelorette parties. We were invited by our close friends and band The String Theory who regularly perform at Seven Springs events.
