*DISCLAIMER*: I do not seek monetary benefits from Cocothe. I am just a Pittsburgh blogger, who enjoys sharing her Foodie adventures. Photos were captures with my iPhone 5s, and were edited with Instagram and Adobe Photoshop CS4 Extended.
I was kindly invited by a local magazine called Maniac (they focus on: fashion, food, travel and events), to attend a Grand Opening Party for this cute little cafe in Sewickley called Cocothe! They started off as a chocolaterie and bakery, but have recently hired a Chef from San Francisco, and have expanded with a Sunday Brunch, lunch and dinner menu!
Pictured above is one of the “small bites” from the opening party: watermelon, on top of feta and mixed greens, with a balsamic viniagrette drizzle! This was my favorite dish of the night; so tasty, refreshing and HEALTHY!
This was sooooooooooooooo good! Oh, how I love chocolate!
Ever since the Grand Opening Party, my Mom and I have discussed visiting Cocothe for lunch; two weeks ago, we FINALLY received our opportunity!
My Mom and I conversed quiet a bit with the Executive Chef (Elizabeth), who not only was the Chef, but also waitress and cashier. She just moved here from San Francisco, and was ready to bring her California Culinary palette to Sewickley!
Who says your can’t have dessert first! It was such a hot day; thus, the Iced Pomegranate tea was the perfect way to cool off from our walk around Sewickley! The Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookie was the perfect pre-cursor to lunch; so decadent!
My Mom’s lunch: the Lex and Lynn salad! I tried a bite, this was sooooo good! Mixed greens, squash, beets and feta cheese.
This was INCREDIBLE! The sandwich was so light (perfect for spring), and scrumptious, but the highlight for me was this side salad! No fuss- just mixed greens and a house vinaigrette, but I LOVED it! The mixed greens were nice and fresh, and the house vinaigrette was IN-CRE-DI-BLE!
There you have it, folks! Whether you live near Sewickley or not, it’s DEFINITELY worth the drive on Route 65 to Cocothe Chocolaterie and Cafe!
