Plum Cafe Review
Plum cafe is nestled behind Canton Street in downtown historic Roswell, Georgia. Historic Roswell is adorable and not at all surprised that this area is growing everyday. This newer eatery has a cute outdoor area with a gazebo. On a warmer fall or spring day it would be a great spot to enjoy a meal with your furry friend. They are very dog friendly. We ate inside since the weather did not cooperate.
I had lunch with my friend Joe so we could catch up and also to try a new restaurant. He ordered the roast beef panini. The roast beef is made in house. How was it? I will never know because he is the fastest eater I know and gobbled it down in about two minutes flat. He said it was good and I will have to take his word for it.
I order the half sandwich (GF bread) and salad combo. They offer gluten-free bread and most sandwiches can be substituted accordingly. The turkey artichoke and swiss cheese sandwich was toasted and came with an aioli sauce. The salad had argula, carmelized pecans, queso fresco, and asparagus topped with poached pears. Both were good, not great. I was charged $13 for the lunch combo, a little steep for an average eatery.
Overall, cute place but nothing out of the ordinary. Competition is tough and while Plum Cafe was good, I wouldn't rush back knowing how many other good restaurants are in the area.
Tip - Plum Cafe has a free parking lot. Despite their address, they are off Canton Street behind Pet Fancy.
We explored around Historic Roswell afterwards, cute shops to peruse. They were setting up for Alive after Five. Every 3rd Thursday, April-October from 5-9 the shops stay open longer and live music, food trucks and vendors set up along Canton Street.
