Perhaps you’ll choose the Rose Garden Variety Plate that includes samples of chicken salad, fresh fruit, quiche du jour, soup of the day, and a pumpkin bread finger sandwich, accompanied by the intriguing and delightful Rose Garden Poppyseed Dressing. Or maybe you would enjoy the Loa Salad that combines tossed greens, pecans, fresh fruit, grilled chicken, and a very special dressing. For a marvelous hot entrée, you might be tempted by the spicy Southwestern Chicken Crepes and salad. The choices are many, each one more appealing than the last.
Whatever you choose for your main course, be sure to reserve room for one of the incredible desserts, such as bread pudding with lemon sauce and whipped cream, Heath Bar Cheesecake, Snickers Cheesecake, or the incomparable Chocolate Rose Petal Cake. If you’re lucky, you might come on a day when they’re serving one of the all-time favorites, Osgood Pie. Not to be missed. Lingering over your lunch at the Rose Garden, you delay leaving as long as possible, renewing your spirit and mind in the refreshing quietude and peace. You chat comfortably with your companions and drink in the elegance around you. Finally, though, you wander back through the vine-covered trellis with a backward glance at the loveliness and warmth that calls you like a siren to return over and over again. And you know you will. There is no doubt . . . you will come again.
