Exploring Food & Culture at the Pilgrimage Café


The newly opened Pilgrimage Café is a restaurant that celebrates the importance of food as a connection to culture and history. Influenced by foods that span the globe, they use flavors and dishes to explore other cultures while at the same time reminding you of home. Did someone say comfort food? It certainly was that, and delicious too.

It’s a treat to start your breakfast with an appetizer. When we saw that they had donuts filled with peanut butter mousse, we had to try them.

I’ve said it before, The Husband loves his Eggs Benedict. He decided on the BBQ Benedict which featured carnitas in a spicy BBQ sauce.

I jumped on the Black Bean Chilaquiles – they had me at black beans and guacamole.
