Late last week I visited a few fine eateries in the Cary area to photography some of their finer offerings. You’d think I would learn one of these days NOT to eat lunch before photographing food. I was so stuffed by the time I left Skippers that I couldn’t even think about eating another thing, much less two other things as I had two places left to photograph on my itinerary. I, like many others, tend to get absorbed into the fast food convenience diet but after visiting the below restaurants, I certainly am have other things on my mind then McBurgers! Here’s a shot from each place:
Skippers is, in my opinion, a well kept secret. I had driven by the restaurant many times and never stopped to check it out. Upon seeing the above “fish sandwich” and actually taking a few bites, I certainly will make time in the future to swing by. All food is prepared after you order, so it comes out piping hot and cooked as you like it. For a different dish (that’s excellent), try the fish taco.
The Blue Rain Cafe, located on ten-ten road, is a coffee/cafe establishment offering the finest of coffee’s (Larry’s Beans) and fresh salads and sandwiches. The above dish, the asian chicken salad, was all prepped and ready to go when I got there. Bill (owner) is also a photo enthusiast so we had lots to talk about during the session. The wontons are made exclusively by Blue Rain and while I couldn’t bring myself to try the salad, I can tell you it certainly has to be as good as it looks!
My last stop was at Coffee & Crepes in Crossroads Plaza. They specialize in coffee and, you guessed it, crepes! The above photo is of one of their best sellers, the cranberry crepe. While I cannot attest to the deliciousness of it, my wife claims it was “great!” and she wants to go back to see what else they have.
A big thanks to all the restaurants who were so gracious in letting me re-arrange their furniture, turning off lights and making odd requests!
