Peg’s Family Restaurant opened recently and is currently in the location of the old Bruno’s Cafe on Main Street. You can’t missed them – they are in a long green building – somewhere near the Tourist Information Center. And don’t let the outside deceive you – because the inside is very, very beautiful. The inside of the restaurant – is warm and cozy – and most commendable are the staff in Peg’s restaurant. They are full of praise for the owner – Peggy Muise – even though she wasn’t in the Sunday we went for our late lunch.
And even though PB and I were there at a time where lunch was already served – the staff took us in happily and attended to us with enthusiasm. As we walked in – we could smell something nice cooking in the kitchen, it wasn’t grease – it was an aroma of something really good.
The restaurant wasn’t very big – but it does have the capacity of a good family get-together or a company’s dinner/lunch. The setting was delightful – very classy – I loved the chandeliers and the lighting in the restaurant.
PB and I both ordered a main dish that came with soup of the day and a hot bun or crackers. Not many places warm up their buns – but Peg’s did – I was pleasantly surprised – and the butter were not frozen but just right – not runny either. The soup – was veggie soup – and it was a hearty soup – i loved it.
I love the chunky tomatoes in the soup.
PB ordered a grilled chicken cordon bleu – and it was awesome – the chicken was tender – the mashed potatoes were creamy and the corn was fresh.
What’s more delightful for PB was the fact that it was a piece of real ham in the chicken cordon bleu – unlike the previous ones he ate at a hotel here – they had a piece of sliced ham – the ones you get in sandwiches. The price? only $12.95 – with soup don’t forget that – pretty cheap eh? Yes! we thought it was value for money that’s for sure.
I had the spaghetti with meatballs for $11.95 – and the pasta was el dente - and the sauce was yummy too. The meatball was good as well – but a wee bit too dry for me. There were pieces of mushrooms in the sauce – that was my favorite – but as you can see – it was another hearty meal – I only finished half and doggy bag the rest home.
The presentation was great – reminded me of Le Zie in New York City – on the 7th.
A very nice touch of fresh grated cheese – not just Parmesan - overall – it was an awesome experience at Peg’s – and if you haven’t tried Peg’s family restaurant – you should – you won’t regret it. They have Deep fried ice cream too – which I am going to try the next time I am there. Coffee and Tea are only at $1.25 and I hear their milkshake are pretty awesome too. They have quite an extensive menu – and you bet you will be seeing us there more often.
