The sweet corn bisque is equally rich and enticing, served with a roasted corn pico de gallo on top. The first spoonful is sweet, silky goodness with a surprising rush of heat from the spices. This is no demure damsel of a bisque! I could happily eat it until I pass out.
Because I am a low/highbrow foodie (thanks for coining that phrase Tolly!), I have to include my favorite lunch last week. Behold, I give you the newest creation on Hat Creek's menu, their Turkey Burger, a juicy, peppered patty, grilled to perfection. It rocked my noontime. It could rock my eveningtime, if Hat Creek would please open a restaurant in South Austin. My picture doesn't do justice to this burger, as I didn't get a great angle of a shot, to showcase the patty, but I was just too eager to eat it and didn't stop to snap more photos.Lift Cafe has a sweet little patio where you can sip a bevie (alcoholic or caffeinated or both) and relax. The day I stopped in, a friend and I ordered this pretty cheese plate. Divine.
