Pond House Café Restaurant Review:

Pond House Cafe is an oasis within an oasis. Nestled amidst the greenery of Elizabeth Park, this upscale, eclectic eatery is all too easy to overlook --- and the hipsters and intelligentsia who frequent it hope it stays that way. But this simply decorated, candle-lit spot deserves foot traffic --- and not only for its serene woodland views. On the oft-changing menu, starters may range from mini crab cakes with Asian slaw to a chorizo and potato empanada. For an entrée, consider the coffee-rubbed duck breast and the braised short rib atop garlic mash with root vegetables. Sorbet, ice cream and crème brûlée might be among desserts.
