A terrace is a comfortable raised space, roomier than a balcony, but cozier than an aircraft hangar. Celebrate elevated comforts and quality eats with the help of today's Groupon. For $12, you get $30 worth of healthy fare and specialty coffee drinks at the chic, two-floor, and two-ceiling Terrace Café. Located in the Piedmont Town Center, Terrace offers the SouthPark community a convenient culinary retreat before or after a long day of shopping, working, or the opposite.
Terrace Café is a locally owned eatery and drinkery that recently extended its breakfast and lunchtime services to include the hours and delights of dinner. The breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus offer creative variety, featuring fresh ingredients, healthy recipes (items marked with a "Y" denote a YMCA nutritionist's approval), and enjoyable menu items for both kids and adults trapped in children's bodies due to a worldview-expanding body-swap plotline.
Start your day sumptuously with a plate of red velvet waffles (topped with a cream cheese drizzle and served with hash browns, grits, or fruit, $9), s'mores french toast ($9.50), or savory shrimp and grits (cajun-spiced shrimp, chorizo, onions, and peppers over cheese grits with fried okra, $13). Children go gaga over the café's animal-shaped pancakes (two pancakes, one egg, and one slice of bacon, $5), and adults will be happy to prepare their stomach's guest room for one of the "Y" omelettes (the Y veggie is made with egg ivories, tomatoes, mushrooms, bell peppers, scallions, and spinach, served with fresh fruit and whole-wheat toast, $11.50).
For lunch, treat your tropical taste buds to a Hawaiian chicken salad (on a bed of field greens with carrots, diced tomatoes, candied walnuts, and shredded cheddar, $10.50), try a mighty corn beef sandwich (served on marble rye with dijon, swiss cheese, and chef's cole slaw, $12), or chomp lustily into a plate of highland Gaelic fish and chips (lightly battered and fried white fish, served with steak fries, homemade tartar sauce, and cole slaw, $13.50). Newly added dinner delishins include pan-seared North Carolina trout (served with veggie pilaf and tempura vert beans, then doused in a pineapple-soy beurre blanc, $20), and a house specialty, maple-horseradish veal chop (served with Dauphinoise potatoes, sautéed spinach, and fried onions, $30).
- Twiggy sconces and landscape art decorate the two-level, gold-walled space with wood tables, curvy glasses and diamond-shaped plates. Fresh, different and fun, just like the menu. – Helen Schwab, Charlotte Observer
- Though I can only speak for the breakfast items, I can’t imagine that the rest of Terrace’s menu would disappoint either. I ordered the Red Velvet Waffle topped with cream cheese drizzle (can’t believe no one in Atlanta has done this!) and Mario threw together a meal from the sides menu of pancakes, scrambled eggs, and bacon – Jessica, First Bite
- With a 1,000 square foot second floor “terrace” that overlooks the first floor diners, decor so warm it makes you feel like you are sitting in a Spanish garden, and cupcakes from a teenager, we think that we’ve just found our newest home. – waxMAMA
- Terrace Cafe has everything going for it. The food, the staff, the decor are all first class. – subo, Urbanspoon
