Shoreline Diner - June Menu

If the sun is out and you're planning a trip to the beach, you simply MUST make a stop at Guilford's Shoreline Diner and Vegetarian Enclave this month. The new Specials Menu will make you very, very happy. Plus, they have a brand new (and gorgeous!) outdoor patio to enjoy those lazy, hazy days of summer.

I just spent the afternoon with Luis and the kitchen crew working on three new items - all of which were hits, and the biggest surprise was the creamy hollandaise sauce made with tofu. Even die-hard omnivores and tofu skeptics found the taste and texture of the Tofu Benedict Florentine delectable. And it's so easy to make, too.

We got fancy with the second entree, a Moroccan themed Baked Tofu made with a Spicy Harissa Sauce. This was served with Baby Red Bliss Potatoes roasted to perfection and Sauteed Spinach. Delish.

But by far, the winning item was the Gluten-free special, Pan-fried Chick Pea Croquettes with Tahini Sauce, Minted Snap Peas and Quinoa Tabouleh. The croquettes are kinda like falafel, only they're made without wheat flour or breadcrumbs. And there's an added kick of coriander and cumin. Oh, such flavors.

I do hope you can come to the Diner to try them in person!
