Thyme & Place Café in downtown Southern Pines, known for serving creative and casual brunch and lunch for seven years, has debuted a new seasonal menu and refreshed their outdoor dining area. Add in frozen to-go meal options from Ladyfingers in Raleigh, and every meal is ~a wrap~.
“We change our menu two or three times a year,” says owner Leslie Philip, who calls herself the restaurant’s chief egg-breaker. “We are always inspired by Chef Ashley Sanderson’s culinary creativity, product availability, and smiles from our customers looking for what’s new.”
This season, brunch on items like sweet potato turkey hash with a wild mushroom gravy, a breakfast soufflé pocket, or plantain nachos with citrus-braised pork.
Lunch is Cajun shrimp or cauliflower tacos, or the Goddess Wrap, named for the fan-fav house-made Green Goddess dressing. The house-made chips and pickles have also been a pretty big dill and will be a staple on the updated menu.
“We’ve recently added an outside dining spot, continue to expand our catering venues, and — as the town grows — are constantly invited to help customers celebrate, communicate and collaborate over various life events,” says Leslie.
The Thyme & Place team likes to get creative with catering options and also offers grab-and-go ready-made items in the Thyme to Go case located in Swank Coffee Shoppe. Stuffed biscuits and apple-and-Nutella-filled croissants have been un-dough-tably popular.
“I started Thyme & Place Café to create community and bring an offering of food well curated in a comforting environment,” Leslie says, “as well as make some new friends along the way, have a few laughs, and collaborate with other businesses on projects or product offerings. Done and done.”
Visit the café from 10-2 Tuesday through Saturday at 155 Hall Avenue. To view the full menu, visit their website.
