Hello from the road, courtesy of my phoneâ€™s mobile hotspot internet! Guess where Matt and I just stopped for lunch, completely spur of the moment?
Great Harvest Charlottesville, owned by my friend Kath and her husband Matt!
Yay! When Matt and I put our friendâ€™s lake house address into the GPS this morning, we discovered that the drive there from D.C. took us directly through Charlottesville â€” at lunch time! Clearly it was fate ðŸ™‚ Matt and I both LOVE Charlottesville and Iâ€™ve been wanting to visit Kath and her Mattâ€™s store ever since they opened in June.
I quickly took to Twitter to tell Kath that she would be having a couple special surprise visitors around lunch time today. Luckily she was able to race down to the store to meet us ðŸ™‚ Next time weâ€™ll give you more notice, Kath, I promise!
I loved their store â€” Iâ€™m so proud of them for opening this place from scratch! Quite an accomplishment and it really looks awesome. So welcoming and cute!
Kath, Matt, and I had fun chatting over lunch, and I also got to chat with fellow blogger Allie, who has been working at Great Harvest this summer!
So how was the food? Delicious, of course! I love Great Harvestâ€™s bread and Kath and her husband Matt have created some amazing sandwich offerings, too.
Matt and I shared two sandwiches â€” the curried tuna salad and the tofu pesto, both on a really good nutty whole grain bread called Dakota bread.
SO good! Especially the curried tuna â€” I need to figure out how to make that at home!
What a fun sporadic lunch rendezvous ðŸ™‚ Great seeing you, Kath, Matt, and Allie!
Weâ€™re back on the road now â€” lake house or bust! Have a wonderful afternoon, friends!
