Its been a long time since we've eaten at the Purple Plum. But, we heard the management changed owners so we decided to stop in for a small lunch. I love soup and was pleased to find out the Purple Plum offered two choices at the time of our visit. Clam Chowder (must have been left over from Friday night's dinner) and BLT soup. Yep. Bacon, lettuce and tomato. I was skeptical, but I enjoy tomato-based soups and I do love my bacon. The owner offered me a sample, which was quite large for a sample; served in a medium bowl - same size they call their cup-size. Oddly enough, the combo was delicious. I ordered the cup-size and offered to just have them "top-off" the bowl they gave me as a sample. However, they brought me a fresh bowl and to my delight there was a heaping pile of warm bacon on top. The lettuce is romaine, but I also detected spinach; another one of my favorites. A piece of fresh, homemade cornbread was served with the soup. My husband ordered pancakes and coffee. Our total bill (before tip) was under $10.
We plan to go back and try some of the other menu items. Our routine restaurant of similar menu used to be Grandma's House. But, the last few times we've gone, the food seemed old and rancid. It's nice to know we have another home-style option.
