Dinner Time at the Crooked Tree Cafe

We could not be more thrilled with the turnout we received for our first weekend of serving dinner! In case you missed the memo, the Crooked Tree Café is now serving dinner on Friday and Saturday nights from 5 PM to 9 PM. Last week Chef Jeff created an incredible dinner menu that included Pimento Cheese Fritters for starters and Pesto Roasted Salmon as a main course entrée. Favorites such as the Crooked Tree Burger and Slow Smoked Springer Mountain Chicken were also served at dinner, but many decided to try something new like our Fish and Grits!

And what dinner would be complete without dessert? Yes, Chef Jeff created some incredible desserts too …  Peach Cobbler, Banana Pudding or Pan Seared Pound Cake. Heck when you joinh us this Friday night, you might want to start with dessert and work backwards. We won’t say a word!

So tell your friends and make plans to join us for dinner this weekend at the Crooked Tree Café.

Here is the yummy dinner menu from last week. Make sure you check Facebook for this week’s menu!

Good Eatin’ Great Cause

Last night we had the privilege of participating in SafePath’s Good Eatin’ Great Cause fundraiser. More than 30 of Georgia’s top chefs participated in the event, including the Crooked Tree Cafe’s own Chef Jeff Haeger! Chef Jeff served up his delectable brisket grilled cheese, and it was a huge hit with everyone!

Along with the tasty samplings from well-known chefs, attendees also got to watch a great cooking competition between Cobb County Police Chiefs, the Cobb County District Attorney’s office, Cobb County Sheriff’s department and the Marietta Fire Department. The event was hosted by Ryan McKay, a two-time winner of the Good Eatin’ Great Cause Competition and a recent contestant on NBC’s Food Fighters.

SafePath Children’s Advocacy Center, Inc. is a private 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of children who have been abused. SafePath’s mission is to reduce the trauma to children and their families by offering a comprehensive, professional, and child-friendly approach to the allegations of child  abuse.   SafePath ensures a less traumatic, child-focused approach to child abuse cases by bringing together professionals from law enforcement, the district attorney’s office, therapists, healthcare professions, DFACS, and other agencies, to all work together as a collaborative team.

SafePath provides unique services for children in our community.  While other entities provide food, shelter and other physical assistance to families in need, SafePath focuses on lessening the trauma experienced by innocent victims of abuse, both children and their non-offending caregivers.  SafePath understands and strives to prevent the initial trauma from being compounded by the system designed to investigate, prosecute and prevent future abuse.

Did you say dinner at the Crooked Tree Cafe?

There has been much discussion since we opened the doors about when we might begin to serve dinner. Well, wait no more, dinner is around the corner. That’s right, the Crooked Tree Cafe will begin serving dinner on Friday and Saturday nights beginning August 21 and August 22. The dinner menu is going to include some new great favorites that we have actually been trying out in smaller portions for lunch.

Perhaps you saw last week’s specials which included Pesto Roasted Salmon and Pan Seared Tenderloin Medallions?

Oh yes, those are only a few of our new items that will be offered at dinner. We are so excited to begin offering dinner on Friday and Saturday nights and can’t wait to see you. You have made us the breakfast, lunch and brunch destination in Marietta, and now let’s add dinner on the weekends!

Our hours for dinner will be from 5 PM to 9 PM on Friday and Saturday evenings. Our current breakfast and lunch hours will not change. Please let everyone know and we hope to see you on August 21 for dinner! Also, have a wonderful first week of school and after you drop the kids off, come join us for a nice, quiet breakfast at the Crooked Tree Cafe.

Back to School Shopping Means Back to School Dining at the Crooked Tree Cafe

There are only two weeks left before school bells will be ringing, kids will be complaining about homework on the first day of school, and moms and dads will be yelling “Yahoo!” Did we say that out loud? Nonetheless, two more weeks means it’s time for back to school shopping! But before you head out to face the crowds at local malls and stores, why not start the day off with a fantastic breakfast from the Crooked Tree Cafe? Our veggie scramble or specialty pancakes are the perfect way for mom, dad and children to start the day with a smile on their face.

Or perhaps you like to start the day a bit later. If so, then why not join us for lunch? Our Mac and Cheese will make even the most difficult shopper agree to trying on at least one more pair of shoes! And mom can stick to her diet with a satisfying Crooked Tree Cafe salad. Honestly, we’ve got something for everyone! So as you create your plan of attack for this year’s shopping trip, make sure to include a stop at the Crooked Tree Cafe!
