We had just visited the Suwannee Valley Shoppes in Trenton, Florida, when we spotted the Suwanee Rose Cafe next door. The greater part of the building, which used to be a Coca Cola bottling plant, is occupied by a quilt fabric shop, located in the back of the restaurant, which is also decorated with various quilts and quilt-related motifs. It is a very original and quaint cafe, with a very warm, old fashioned feel to it. The service was very good though they did take a little more time than we expected to bring the soup that came with our entrees: they brought it when we were almost done with our entrees. (Our server did apologize for the delay and the soup, a fish gumbo, was delicious, so we weren't upset.) The Turkey Reuben Sandwich I ordered was very good; but my husband and daughter found that their orders (a chicken salad sandwich and a chicken quesadilla, respectively) were good but nothing special. For dessert my daughter and I shared an awesome raspberry chocolate brownie-like bar (can't remember the name). It was hard choosing because all the desserts looked great. All in all I really liked this restaurant and will definitely visit again when I'm in the area. Next time I'll try their Monte Cristo Sandwich and Quiche, both very good based on some comments I overheard from nearby tables.
