With Mother’s Day only three days away, time is of the essence to plan something nice for your mother. Cafe Med, located on 4809 Stockdale Hwy, is known for it’s classy yet lively, romantic, Mediterranean atmosphere, and this year they are hosting a very special Sunday brunch/buffet for all the Mother’s and their families in Bakersfield. Space is limited and they are urging you to call ahead to get your reservation for your family!
Their Mother’s Day menu offers a champagne brunch which includes champagne and mimosas, an omelette station, carving station with prime rib, ham & rack of lamb, seafood bar and much more! Whether you are coming for the Mother’s Day special, or a nice dinner for a relaxing night out, Cafe Med is the place to be. Their menu includes a huge selection varying from their unique appetizers, (which includes my personal favorite: their pita bread and dip), shish kabob-soublaki-traditional Mediterranean surf, turf, sandwiches, from the deli, saute pasta dishes, from the oven, soups and salads, martini bar selection, and beer and wine list; you are sure you will leave full, satisfied and planning when your next night to eat out will be!
Come out every last Friday of the month for wine tasting, try one of their cooking classes, or plan your own event with Cafe Med!
Cafe Med’s own cooking class includes the chef teaching the eager new chefs in the making, how to cook Bechamel, Clam Chowder, Cream of Mushroom Crostini, Oysters Thermidor, Potatoes Gratin al la Florentine, Coquilles St. Jacques, Moussaka, and Fresh Berries with Sweet Mornay. The classes start at $50 per person and $15 for wine pairings. What a great Mother’s Day gift (hint, hint). They also offer a special kids camp for young children to get a jump start on their cooking 401!
If you are planning your own special event, Cafe Med offers their own personalized Banquet room and catering, gift baskets, sandwich platters, gourmet cheese and salami, chocolate dipped wine bottles (Another great gift: hint, hint) and more!
This has got to be one of, if not the top restaurants in Bakersfield. With all of their unique offerings and huge assortments, they cater to anyone and everyone. I will guarantee you the dining and entertainment experience here is worth the extra money and will hold a special place on your calendar for your next relaxing/romantic outing out!
