Charlotte is a city that offers restaurant lovers many options when it comes to fine cuisine, however, not all can boast a menu that offers items that are as pleasing to the waistline as they are the palate. . The Terrace Cafe located in Piedmont Center in the SouthPark area, is not only famous for their highly popular brunch, but also for the items that cater to those watching their cholesterol and fat. Cindy and Stewart Penick, owners of the Terrace Cafe were very pleased when the nutritionist of the Harris YMCA as well as the Harris YMCA Express approved three of their menu items.
Two heart friendly omelets received the Y nutritionist seal of approval. The Y Turkey is the perfect blend of egg whites, shredded turkey, spinach, and tomato, served with a side of fruit and whole wheat toast. For all you herbivores, the Y Veggie is a fluffy egg white omelet filled with fresh tomatoes, scallions, mushrooms, bell peppers, spinach and onions and is also served with fruit and whole wheat toast. In addition to the omelets, the nutritionist selected the Y Terrace Fruit Salad as the third Y approved menu item which is a beautiful mixture of baby greens, grapes, apples, walnuts, strawberries, and berry vinaigrette all topped with sliced chicken breast.
As if that wasn't good enough news, in addition to doing something great for your heart, every time you order a Y approved meal, you will be doing something great for our community. 3% of the purchase of each Y item is donated back to the YMCA Community Outreach program and all you have to do is eat, drink and be merry .
Because of the overwhelming success of Terrace Cafe's brunch business, Cindy and Stewart decided to open for dinner. From the succulent appetizer of New Orleans Fried Scallops with Lobster Hollandaise to the Maple Horseradish Veal Chop entre, executive chef Thomas Kerns has taken SouthPark dining to new culinary heights. The restaurant atmosphere is warm and family friendly with beautiful decor that invites you to relax, sit back and enjoy one of Charlotte's best offerings.
