Sunday was another beautiful day so we decided to explore on our bicycles. Our destination was a place I heard about somewhere and put on my "need to try" list. Today was the day we were trying Café Osage at Bowood Farms. I truly had no idea what a treat we were in for. We pedaled up and down the hills of Delmar Boulevard until we reached Kingshighway and headed south. Immediately, we started seeing one church after another...and they were stunning. I told Bob I needed to stop and take pictures.
See the stone animal heads lining the top sides?
Then we rode down a couple of streets with amazing homes and stopped in the Central West End and parked our bikes. We stopped into a great antiques store in this building called Rothschild's.
We then continued on foot since I knew our destination was nearby. We continued up Euclid and turned right on Washington Avenue until it turned off into Olive Street, and that's when I noticed the bright doors mentioned on the website. This place is amazing; there's a garden on the opposite side of the street, and then a huge outdoor nursery. The main building houses both the café and the Bowood Farms gift/supply store. We walked around in awe before deciding it was time to eat. We chose to sit outside on this gorgeous day and eat at one of the umbrella-covered tables amongst all the beautiful flowers and plants. Our food was excellent and used ingredients grown across the street in the garden. I was in heaven.
There were so many butterflies and bees...
Now, here's where we had brunch...
Egg scramble with vegetables from the garden, including eggplant and microgreens with some delicious toast and raspberry jam...
Biscuits and gravy with cheddar-dill biscuits, chunks of chicken, mushrooms, and a delicious gravy - with microgreens from the garden...so delicious.
Look at this amazing butterfly who kindly let me take its picture...
On our way out was this crazy cool Impala. Old school.
Then we hopped back on our bikes and rode through a couple neighborhoods with some just-your-average homes such as these...
...and then we were home. We sat on our front steps sharing a local Schlafly Pale Ale while we enjoyed the remains of a great weekend.
