Lunch at the Panorama at Cabot Links

On our return from the trip around the Cabot Trail Monday, we stopped at the Cabot Links Golf Course in Inverness to have lunch at their restaurant, Panorama.  Dan and I were familiar with the restaurant because we celebrated my birthday there last year.  We were happy to introduce our friends, Mary, Shelley, and Jesse to this wonderful restaurant.

It was difficult for me to choose from the menu, but I finally decided on the lobster salad and it was a good choice.

Mary likewise chose the lobster. Dan chose the seafood chowder, Shelley opted for the Orzo Pasta Rustica (Roasted Chicken, Italian Sausage, Sundried Tomato & Fennel) and Jesse had the 15th Hole Club Sandwich.  They were all happy with their choices as was I.
Shelley's choice, Orzo Pasta Rustica.
The real dilemma was in selecting our desserts.   Mary who did not have dessert, but had a taste of each of ours rated them.  Her first choice was the Granny Smith Apple, Maple & Pecan Bread Pudding with chantilly cream & caramel sauce that Jesse chose.

 Shelley's choice of Cape Breton Blueberry Cobbler with wild blueberries & Cabot's Vanilla Bean Ice Cream Mary judged a close second best of the three. (I had this last year when we were here for dinner, and I can vouch for its deliciousness.)

However,  Mary and I were a bit disappointed in my choice of the Butterscotch and Chocolate Mousse.  We prefer the light and fluffy mousse as opposed to mousse that is thick and creamy.

Panorama is without a doubt one of the premier Cape Breton restaurants, and husband and wife team, John Haine and Tracy Wallace are among the top chefs in the Province.  I'm looking forward to another visit to Panoroma before the summer is over.
