The ingredient synthesizers at Courtyard Cafe & Bakery craft creative renditions of classic southern eats, cooking up meals from scratch daily. Under the high ceilings and vintage pendant lamp fixtures of the restaurant's historic brick and mortar, midday diners may peruse the fresh fare of the lunch menu. Franklins Baby Bleu salad unveils an orangery of produce, including mandarin oranges, strawberries, grapes, and fresh lettuce ($7.99), and the fried green-tomato BLT ($5.99) disguises its celebrity acronym with a coat of creole mustard monogrammed with the name "Bob." Foursomes can feed on a hearty take-home dinner, choosing from entrees that include enchilada casserole and homemade chicken before selecting a salad, bread, and dessert. Skip straight to sweets with a dozen cupcakes, erupting from wax encasings in flavors such as red velvet, peanut butter, banana pudding, and lemon blueberry.
