In our Lunching in Little Rock blog series, Michael Kirkpatrick will explore and review the best restaurants in Little Rock and its surrounding area – all in time to get back to the office. This week, Michael ate lunch at Pizza Cafe. Photo courtesy of Pizza Cafe.
February is a busy time at the Kirkpatrick Creative office. We’re busy getting the new year plans executed for our clients and doing lots of planning and sales for our agriculture clients. It’s important to keep all the troops happy, motivated and well-fed. Feeding a group is tough, but pizza is a crowd-pleaser, so we headed to Pizza Cafe on Rebsamen.
Inside, the restaurant is cozy and small, with tables scattered throughout the room. The Pizza Cafe staff were happy to pull some tables together for our group of eight. The restaurant was full of a hodgepodge of chairs, an assortment of art and photos on the wall, and happy folks enjoying their lunch. Pizzas and huge salads were being shared on the tables, which inspired our whole clan to share as well. Varied tastes and diets dictated we order a wide variety of pie. We skipped the salads and went with pepperoni, artichoke chicken and vegetarian pizzas. I usually like my pies with extra parmesan cheese and crushed red pepper, especially on the pepperoni, but the artichoke pizza was just fine on its own. The veggie pizza was gobbled up before I could get a piece, but I can’t say I was moving too fast to try it. Don’t forget, Pizza Cafe puts honey on the table for your perfectly braided crust; it’s delicious.
It’s a simple thing, but a little food and fellowship goes a long way in busy times. It’s worth it to take a break and refocus. If you have a group and need a break, don’t hesitate to head to Pizza Cafe for some handcrafted pies. The whole table will leave satisfied and happy.
