The heart of the Chattahoochee Hills community is Serenbe, a relatively new planned village that has a unique charm. One of the strong desires of the Serenbe community is to create a sustainable living space.
The café’s menu is prepared using as many locally produced and sustainable ingredients as possible. Many of the dishes incorporate fresh produce from the Serenbe Farm.
We headed over to Serenbe on a gorgeous, sunshiny day. We love the drive to Serenbe from Newnan. The road curves through farm country, giving you a glimpse of grazing cows and waving fields of green new crops.
Once you arrive at Serenbe, you get the additional treat of driving through the farm to get to the town. The farm is a small and well kept. The narrow drive winds through scenes so idyllic you feel like you have stepped into a painting.
We decided that since the day was so beautiful, we would enjoy our breakfast on Daisy sidewalk. It’s the perfect place to relax over a long breakfast at one of the bright blue wooden tables.
As dog owners, we love that the outdoor seating is a dog friendly area. They have bowls of fresh water for furry companions and hitching posts to tie a leash.
Inside, Blue Eyed Daisy emphasizes their commitment to environmental responsibility with upcycled décor. Most of the furniture are beautiful second hand pieces and the ceiling is festooned with large branches secured with twine.
We were both in the mood for eggs, so we decided to try their egg white omelet and scrambled eggs with bacon and toast.
The scrambled eggs were light and fluffy. They were given an extra shot of flavor with a pinch of fresh herbs. Paired with toast and bacon, they made the perfect breakfast for a late spring morning.
The egg white omelet came buried under a mound of mixed greens and sunflower seeds. The mild flavor of the egg whites contrasted nicely with the flavor that was bursting inside. It was a delicious combination of buttery sautéed mushrooms and fresh pesto.
Blue Eyed Daisy also has very good coffee.
The blend Rebekah tried was smooth with light citrus notes. No cream and sugar necessary.
We couldn’t leave without grabbing a few pastries on our way out. The peanut butter cookies were huge!
We also had to try the cupcakes that won Food Network’s Cupcake Wars competition. They were every bit as delicious as we anticipated.
Those who want to take home a bit of the Blue Eyed Daisy can browse their merchandise wall for preserves, t shirts and recipe books. The wall also contains a stack of board games to entertain kids while their parents catch up over coffee.
Serenbe is just a few miles outside of Coweta and has many great restaurants and adorable shops. Blue Eyed Daisy does special dinner nights, so be sure to follow them on Facebook to stay updated on dinner menus and limited offerings.
