Much of the fun in dining at The Purple Daisy, for me at least, was that many menu items reminded me of dishes I used to make when I was young and foolish, but which are now out of my repertoire because they're fatty or otherwise unhealthy. Once in awhile, however, you've got to relive your past, so I zeroed in on a side dish called "Hashbrown Casserole." Let's see, toasty hash browns, butter, cheese, onions, sour cream, more butter, and some kind of creamed soup (maybe cream-o-mushroom?) to bind it all together. Crunchy top, browned to a crisp. Sinful. Loved it.

Of course, the casserole was just a side, so I was justified in ordering a sandwich, swayed perhaps by the aroma of smoked meat, which permeates this little cafe. I don't eat pork, and very little beef, so whenever I see BBQ'd chicken on a menu, I'm compelled to order it. The sandwich was delicious but huge at just $6.75 and I ended up leaving most of the bun on the plate. All prices are reasonable at the PD.

Intriguing menu items will tease you into ordering more than you can eat. How about Piglet Pak, chili pie, cheeseburger quesadilla, or a dessert called Alabama Dirt, a pudding mixed with Oreo crumbs.

Purple Daisy was packing 'em in at lunchtime on a Friday in early May when I was there. Luckily we arrived around 12:45 and didn't have to wait for a table. Funky, old-fashioned decor. A unique experience in casual dining. Oh, and DO expect to see plenty of purple!
