Three Angels' menu is brimming with classic comfort foods (think meatloaf and fried chicken), as well as vegetarian items like a mock egg salad sandwich and a veggie burger with veggie bacon. Many of the restaurant's ingredients come from local farms, and the vegetables change daily to reflect what's available. The times I've dined there, the options have included mustard greens with vinegar, sautéed eggplant with red pepper, sautéed green beans with ginger, and lots of fresh soups.
On a recent visit, I tried Momma's Veggie Sandwich. With its house-baked tofu, roasted red peppers, red onions, mayo, olive oil, and balsamic vinegar, it's a heavenly way to get your veggie requirement for the day. The sandwich came with homemade, crispy potato chips and a deviled egg. And while I almost never eat dessert, I was lured into it with the promise of peanut butter and chocolate. The Peanut Butter Surprise was layers of chocolate, whipped cream, and hardened crunchy peanut butter. The perfect way to undo all the good work I had done by eating a veggie sandwich. — Sarah Christine Bolton
