Food for Thought Report 11.22

Apple Tree Cafe and Bakery made hundreds of apples pies and apple cakes this Thanksgiving.

Owner Brant Daniel says, "We were very busy this Thanksgiving, a lot busier than last year. It's been a great Thanksgiving and we're looking forward to Christmas." Daniel says the key to getting pies from their clean kitchen to your tables is by ordering them early.

Apple Tree Cafe and Bakery at 3201 50th is a Food For Thought top performer.  Daniel says, "We have a conscientious staff and they're on top of making sure everything is safe and in perfect condition."

If you shopped at United to do the cooking yourself, we have good news. The bakery, coffee shop and meat and fish departments inside the United at 82nd and Frankford are all top performers.

If you're tired of turkey, head over to America's favorite drive-in for a burger. Sonic at 1901 34th is tops this week along with Jumbo Joe's Number 2 at 3218 34th. Both were perfect in their last health inspections.

It's not only a popular night spot, the restaurant inside Rocky Larue's at 2420 Broadway is a top performer.

Rounding out perfection this week is Starbucks at 801 University.
