Flying Avocado

When Miss Lydia and I meet for lunch we like to try new places; most recently she suggested the Flying Avocado Cafe in Owings Mills.

This sweet little cafe was bustling at lunchtime, but the friendly, courteous staff (dressed in neat black shirts and bright ties - i love a man in a good tie) was just as quick so the wait wasn't too bad.
Seating was a bit tight, but we were able to snag a few seats at the window counter.
With locally sourced ingredients, the Flying Avocado offers a range of soups, salads and sandwiches.
What was that? Did you just think salads are boring?
Not the way this place does them.

That's my Grilled Chicken Berry Salad (Organic field greens, seasonal berries, mandarin orange, honey-coated walnuts, red onion & goat cheese with a blueberry vinaigrette), our shared Avocado Triple Connection (Homemade guacamole, hummus & creamy spinich dip served with raw veggies, chips &and grilled pita points) and Lydia's Dr Ray's Raw Rainbow Salad (Organic field greens with an assortment of seasonal fruits, vegetables, honey coated walnuts, mandarin oranges, dried cranberries & sprinkled with ground flax seed).
Needless to say, we both took food home.
The prices were reasonable for the portions and everything we tried was delicious.
They advertise themselves as the best vegetarian restaurant in Baltimore and I can certainly see why, but they have plenty of meated options as well. I can't wait to go back and try the roasted lamb and feta wrap. And the marinated tofu. And the nicoise salad. And the smoothies.
