Mushroom and cheese omelet at Village Kitchen & Pie Shoppe

Mushroom and cheese omelet at Village Kitchen & Pie Shoppe

I stayed at Carlsbad, CA on a recent visit to Legoland and ate dinner at the Village Kitchen & Pie Shoppe since it was walking distance to the hotel.

Having a craving for breakfast food, I ordered the three egg mushroom cheese omelet. When it arrived, the omelet was quite impressive. It had distinct layers of egg, cheese, and mushrooms that blended very well in each bite. The Swiss cheese was generously folded in and the mushrooms were cooked just right. It was simply one of the best omelets I’ve had in a few years.

For dessert, I had a difficult time choosing among the many great looking pies in the display case, so I took the waiter’s recommendation and ordered the sour cream cherry pie. I was not disappointed. The large piece of pie came with pile of whipped cream on top. I didn’t want to know the calorie count. The cherry pie filling had just the right level of sweetness with slightly tart cherries. I haven’t ever seen walnuts used in fruit pies before, but the sprinkling of sweetened toasted walnuts provided a great contrast to the soft pie crust.

If you find yourself in Carlsbad craving for good simple American comfort food (including dessert), check out the Village Kitchen & Pie Shoppe.
