Just north of the Ice Den on Bell Road, you will find Tom’s Thumb. We went the other morning for breakfast and to take a look around the place we had been hearing so much about.
As you enter, it looks like a very large, clean gas station and car wash. However, when you enter into the market itself, it all changes. There are multiple seating areas with comfortable couches as well as tables and chairs.
Once you pass the convenience items up front, you will see the order counter for the Campfire Bistro to your right and a large selection of wine and decorative items for the home to the left. Past these areas are more home items, more seating and a large refrigerated beverage section.
For breakfast, we had an omelet and a breakfast sandwich. The omelet was large and tasty. It came with toast and potatoes. The sandwich was a fried egg on a whole grain English muffin with basil and Canadian bacon. It was light and tasty. In addition to standard breakfast fare, they also offer breakfast tacos and enchiladas as well as more southern options like grits and pulled pork.
One of the big draws at the Campfire Bistro is their BBQ. They slow smoke the meats and you can enjoy them on sandwiches, in tacos or as part of a platter. To make it even better, there is a counter in the dining area where they offer about six different types of barbeque sauces to add to your food. In addition to their BBQ meats and all of the traditional sides, they offer a large variety of sandwiches, burgers salads and entrees.
