I'm not a knitter and have little use for yarn, but I was tempted to stop in to Cast on Cafe
to pick up some lunch after browsing the menu posted on Downtown Willoughby
I ordered the Confetti Salad, which is made up of "white rice, black beans, scallions, red and yellow bell peppers dressed with basil Parmesan vinaigrette." I've had confetti salad before, but there was something about this mix -- perhaps the vinaigrette -- that made it the best I have had. I'd like to try some of the other items on the menu -- like the Chicken Salad sandwich or the Waldorf Salad -- but it's going to be difficult ever ordering anything else.
(I also splurged on a cappuccino truffle, which was well worth it.)
If you're curious about what exactly the Cast on Cafe is, here is a description from the website
I’ve had a passion for knitting, fibers and yarn since I was a child and I hope to inspire the same passion in you through education, assistance and the finest products available.
