C-Lou Patton's House of the Finest Quiches, located in a sweet storefront next to the Hattiloo on Marshall, opened last January.
Its primary business is catering, but you can place an order for a quiche and then pick it up piping hot an hour later.
I ordered the vegetable quiche.
It came topped with a generous amount of cheese and packed with vegetables — broccoli, spinach, carrots, etc. It was so vegetable dense as to almost qualify as a pot pie. Very good and a bargain at $12 per quiche.
There are some 30 quiches listed on the menu, from beef & sausage ($12) and grilled chicken stir fry ($14) to crab and broccoli ($14) and steak ($14). Quiche prices top out at $20.
Patton's offers a few items that can be prepared on the spot, including a number of salads, breakfast dishes, and pie by-the-slice.
Business hours are Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-6 p.m. and Saturday 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
