What happens when the Sgt rolls home with a 3 foot high velvet Elvis he found along the side of the road.....well, it makes MaryDeluxe realize she married the right man!
What happens when Sgt stops at obscure middle of nowhere yard sales so MaryDeluxe can take a peak? $5 vintage leopard coats happen!
Don’t get me started. I know that if I attempt to make this at home it just won’t be the same. It’ll be different, just like a bowl of soup, coffee and cobbler at home is not the same as eating around the campfire while stretching out sore muscles from sleeping on the ground all night. Dreamville offers more than road food, Jess offers good food that makes the road something to remember. There’s not a lot on the lunch menu…. But there shouldn’t. It should be simple, creative, and delicious. And it is. One could argue that offering a ‘main entree menu’ with 14 pages of desserts, entrees, and side dishes hides the fact that the food is ‘So-So’ at best. My experience would prove that to be true. Check out the menu selection on line (see at bottom). While you might think you want more, think quality over quantity. If you think that everything on the dessert menu online will be there, think again. You might want to call ahead to see if she can make something special for you, or maybe just to see if she isn’t sold out (I have to go back for the cherry turnovers and rumor has it the apple turnovers sell out even faster!) There are specials, too: coffee for a nickel between 8 and 9 AM. This summer there will be fresh pies and ice cream. All the fruit used in the desserts are fresh, not canned filling! It’s clear the best ingredients are used by the Wizard of Dreamville, behind her curtain! All of this and I haven’t even mentioned how reasonable the prices are! They’re reasonable. So much that I wonder how she stays in business! There is a rumor that she is starting a Farmer’s / Flea Market on Wednesdays, too!
Congratulations Jess, it’s clear that it takes a TON of hard work to make something beautiful happen and to do it well. Also, for reminding us, that if you do something well, stick to it. And most of all, thanks for the awesome Retro Lunch that made my road trip something to remember!
I’ll be stopping by again this summer.
