All of life's important moments are marked by one of three things: eating a cake, passing a torch, or signing on the bottom line of a clown-college certificate. Embrace edible celebration with today's deal: for $7, you get $15 worth of fresh bakery fare at Terebinth: A Sweet Retreat in Chesapeake.
Terebinth: A Sweet Retreat whips, bakes, and assembles a made-from-scratch menu of sweet and savory treats. Guests can breakfast on steaming lattes ($3.25) or coffee ($1.79), as well as fragrant cinnamon scones dunked in pools of house-made preserves or curd ($2.25). All of the shop's gourmet sandwiches, such as the Turkey Wild Panino—featuring an apple-reduction sauce, smoked gouda, and bacon ($7.99)—arrive on fresh-baked bread alongside a caesar or house salad, or lemon-basil pasta salad. Eric’s KC MO ($9.99) stuffs hickory-smoked chuck roast into a sandwich slathered in Terebinth's secret barbecue sauce, which may require an extra dining shirt in your back pocket. Dessert deprivations stand corrected as bites of The Bishop chiffon cake frost taste buds in clouds of cream-cheese mousse, truffle filling, and ganache ($5.25/slice), and cocoa-swathed Pink Chocolate slabs ambush sweet teeth with a surprise party of blushing peppercorns ($5.25/slice).
Terebinth’s toasty cream walls frame a tableau of tables and bookshelves that invite guests to linger over delicate treats with a short shelf-life, creating a perfectly plausible excuse for eating the entire box without taking a breath or blinking. Craft a sugar-kissed medley of takeout treats with made-from-scratch cannoli ($2.95), brownies ($2.75+), and seasonal delicacies, or whisk a 6-inch round of red-velvet cake ($24) off the premises for a fine brown-bag lunch.
Terebinth Patisserie & Bistro
A tree that thrives in desert areas, the terebinth has historically represented refuge and shade for weary travelers–and Terebinth Patisserie & Bistro hopes to provide a similar service. Only here, unlike for travelers in the desert, visitors to the bistro are greeted with a spread of fresh food and accompanying drinks. Handcrafted soups, salads, and five different paninis pair perfectly with espresso, or pots of specially selected tea. After main courses, French macaroons, cakes, and tarts claim any empty real estate that remains in bellies.
