DAILY PHOTO: French Fry Dreams Do Come True

Published in: Daily Photo

Getting my grub on at The Boon Fly Cafe in Napa…

Yesterday El Hub and I celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary with a late lunch at The Boon Fly Cafe in Napa.

So, I joke all the time about wanting to eat a bucket of fries, and I finally got the chance! Boon Fly serves their fried strings o’ glorious potato goodness in an actual tin bucket.


No, really. It’s a real bucket.

An actual bucket of fries!

Get in my belly!

The rest of the feast…

I had the smoked salmon flatbread with crème fraîche and capers, yuuum!

El Hub had the ginormous BLT (with an egg over hard), which he wasn’t crazy about because it was almost too thick to eat (as if)

And then for desert, a buttermilk cake with strawberry jam filling… AHHH! I will dream about this cake for YEARS!

Cucumber gin gimlet for me and an Amstel Light for El Hub

Boon Fly is a bit off the beaten path, but if you’re ever out here for wine tasting and looking for grub, it’s a cute, casual joint with great service and yummy food. Highly recommended, especially the fries. 🙂
