Poppleton Bakery & Cafe

We took a break from our day at Corning Museum of Glass to meet SP's cousin for lunch. We met him at Poppleton Bakery & Cafe. It's a cute little bakery and cafe serving soups, salads, crepes, sandwiches, and baked treats. They also have bubble tea.
SP ordered a Cranberry Chicken Crepe (cranberry cream cheese, chicken, romaine, and herb almonds). For his side he got carrot chips.
He liked it a lot - and that's all he can remember about it now, 2 weeks after we were there!
It was just the right size for him at lunch. I ordered Pimiento & Cheese Panini with Chicken and for my side, broccoli salad.
It was a tasty panini. The pimiento cheese was a little different from what I am accustomed to. I overheard it described as cheddar cheeses and pepper jack cheese melted together. The pepper jack gave it a nice peppery taste, but it was a little different than pimiento taste. I really liked it, though. Ooey, gooey cheese with a bit of a peppery bite. The broccoli salad was good, too. Tiny florets with tiny bits of chopped onion, tiny shreds of cheese, and a very light vinaigrette.
SP got a scone for later in the day. I never got a photo of it so I guess it was tasty. I got a chocolate chip biscotti and ate it the next day while we were driving over to Ithaca. It was big, a harder rather than softer biscotti, and very good. Lots of chips.

This is a great spot for a lunch in Corning. It's cute & cheerful inside. The people were really friendly and chatted with us. All of our food was tasty. Of course the best part was visiting with SP's cousin - we hadn't seen him in 3 years so it was great to talk and catch up.
