Sherwood Cafe 5645 N. Post Rd. D

Well we discovered this place last week. It is in a strip mall at the corner of 56th and Post Road. It is a quiet and unassuming place. The decor is pretty generic but it does have an interesting wall of various reclaimed planks.

As for the food it bills itself as a Family restaurant so it has a rather extensive menu. It serves breakfast all day since it closes at 4 PM. It also offers grits. Something I enjoy seeing; although the service cutoff for grits is 11 AM.

Pat was leaning towards lunch and I was feeling an urge for pancakes. That is the nice thing about joints like this. I think they even have a hamburger steak breakfast platter. I guess that could be a fusion Hoosier style.

As I said I had a “hankering” for pancakes. Also I wouldn’t mind a bit of sausage and bacon. So I got both. Pigs in a Blanket and a side of bacon.

These crazy little things were great. I have never had them before. The pancakes were outstanding. Light and fluffy and the savory bite of sausage made them that much better. I really could have eaten more.

Overall our meal was very nice. However I think they need a “hook”. Something unique to set them apart from other joints similar to theirs. Cafe Audrey is close by and they are a tough act to compete with. However I think that area is big enough to support 2 such joints. As for prices our total for food was about $20. Which is about standard for this type of food.

  1. Rolled-up pancakes?

    • Oh yeah. They are a “thing” in the Midwest. Sometimes with apples or strawberries or as in this case. Sausages ! Think of them as fat crepes.
