best bets in/around Auburn
We are hitting the Auburn Fall Home Show this weekend and would like to have both lunch and dinner in the area. I am aware that they have a great Saturday famer's market by the courthouse. Cheap or fancy...but Chowish, please...perhaps a place to stay, as well. Suggestions? Thanks!
I've had a couple of truly amazing meals at Carpe Vino. The place is small, and the volume level in the room can be a bit loud. That noted, the food is first rate, and the wine pricing is $5 over retail.

A few other places that I can recommend - without hesitation - are Katrina's and the Auburn Ale House.
Katrina's is very Chowish. They are open for breakfast and lunch. Great omlettes and sandwiches. High quality and generous portions.
The Auburn Ale House is a brew pub. Reasonable prices and generous food portions. Love their blackened chicken sandwich, stuffed peppers, and jambalya. Their beer is well crafted, made onsite, and in multiple styles.

We went to the Auburn Ale House. Had the flight of 7 beers. Had the deep fried pickles...SO good! Pilsner, lager, Oktoberfest, pale ale, India pale ale, brown, stout...nice. Also, the owner gave us a sample of hard apple cider and a concoction called "Black Velvet", consisting of hard apple cider and stout. Goodness. Ummmmmmm....
Very good food...yummy deep fried pickles and a special of pasta and shrimp with tomatoes and prosciuitto...wow...
I've had good meals at both Monkey Cat and Latitudes. I've also heard that Awful Annie's is good.
