The pot pie generously is portioned and arrives with a golden crust baked down the sides of the crock. I do the honors, being first to break through the flaky expanse to the turkey, peas and carrots beneath that are bound by a rich, creamy sauce. The pot pie quickly is dispatched.
Turkey pot pie is from Caf Milano's comfort food menu of nine dishes that are $6.95 7.95.(Photo: Provided to the RGJ)THE PLACE: Until a recent visit, I always got lost trying to find Caf Milano (formerly the Peppermill Coffee Shop) in the Peppermill Resort Spa Casino. A deficient sense of direction and an equally poor ability to reason spatially conspired, every Puma Pink Suede time, to put me off course. Is the restaurant just beyond this bank of slots? Or down this corridor? How did I end up at Oceano?
South Virginia Street. A moment later, I'm walking through those Peppermill doors that face east onto South Virginia. I'd always wondered where in the casino they led to, hence my side excursion.
ALTERNATIVES: Pork three ways omelet, breakfast skillet, chopped meat sandwich and London broil all from the comfort food menu and all less than $8.
But then the other afternoon, I park in the Peppermill's front lot on its south side, walk past the fountain where wild ducks Puma X Fenty By Rihanna

RETURN TRIP?: The food is worth any potential squeeze, and late night omelet runs to Caf Milano already are becoming a new tradition.

THE LOOK: A few years ago, the Peppermill renovated the Coffee Shop, a tradition for generations of locals and visitors, transforming its tropical frenzy into something warmer, richer and more Italianate. With the makeover came a new name, Caf Milano. The signature booths remain (as does the lunch counter), but now they're clothed in deep brown leather. Classical columns help divide the space. The restaurant still is lively, but it's more stylish now.

I can never resist pot pie, so at lunch the other day, that's my choice no need to page through the main menu. My companion, however, wants to have a look, and settles on the Romanza chicken grill sandwich. We decide to share both dishes, having the pot pie as an appetizer and half the sandwich each as our main course.
The Romanza sandwich layers nicely grilled chicken and onions, tomatoes and provolone between thick slices of garlic ciabatta. Swipes of basil pesto mayonnaise we ask for extra help distinguish the sandwich. We dip bites of sandwich in the side of mayo.
Milano comfort food menu
On the comfort food menu, all nine dishes. On the main menu, several breakfast dishes are less than or around $10, soup and half sandwich of the day combo is less than $10, and sandwiches like the tuna melt and BLT are about $10.
squeeze for some folks. True, not for my companion, who is as slender (and lovely) as a spear of spring asparagus, but certainly for the fellows in a booth beyond us. They aren't heavy at all, just solid, 6 foot and taller, regular American guys.
The smaller comfort food menu features just nine dishes, among them fried chicken and turkey pot pie, reasonably priced from $6.95 7.95 (portions are normal size, by the way).
KUDOS: Caf Milano is busy, as it typically is, but check in, food and drink arrival, and check backs all occur as and when they should. At the last moment, I change the sandwich order from regular fries to waffle fries, but it's the regular version that are plated alongside the sandwich. But not to worry. Once alerted to the error, the server delivers a full order of hot waffle fries (no charge, of course).
THE MEAL: Caf Milano offers two menus. The lengthy main menu encompasses everything from baked goods and breakfast dishes to soups and salads, from sandwiches and burgers to main courses and Asian noodle soups and stir frys. Plus desserts that include banana splits and hot fudge sundaes.
Lo, just beyond the doors liess the host stand of Caf Milano! I hear singing and see a slant of sunlight. I will be lost no more forever.
