I'm a Mrs. G's VIB!

I'm a VIB!

I’m a Mrs. G.’s VIB (Very Important Blogger… but of course)! Today I attended the first of many of the Mrs. G.’s VIB Blogger Series at the Mrs. G.’s store on Route 1 in Lawrenceville, NJ.

My mom has shopped at Mrs. G.’s for a number of years and this was the first time I was able to experience their incredible showroom. The event was an opportunity to meet fellow bloggers and network with them, as well as take a tour of the Mrs. G.’s facility and watch some demos.

Their sales people are so knowledgeable about all of their products and extremely helpful. I fell in love with the front loading Electrolux washer and dryer (I want it in red), as well as a few tv’s.

Kelly Ripa has one. So should I! I guess I should have checked them out sooner so we could watch the World Series (Go Yankees) tonight on one of them. Hey Santa…are you listening?

One of the many great tv's at Mrs. G.'s

We participated in a demo featuring an Electrolux kitchen and ate tomato bisque soup, salmon, brussel sprouts with pancetta, apple cider and fondue! How cool is that? I even placed my hands on the stove and didn’t get burnt. Since there isn’t a flame and its all magnetic, it’s the perfect option for families with small children.

Cooking things up!Paper towel and my hand on stove. Not burning!End result... Delish!

Ok, so about that tv… they have some amazing sets to choose from. Did you know there are 3D capable tv’s? If you have a 3D capable tv you can plug it into a media server that can show 3D content and Voila! (The server comes with the 3D glasses, not the tv.) I was able to test it out watching “Coraline” the movie. Incredible!

Mrs. G.’s #1 Priority as they proudly display on large signs throughout the store is… drum roll please… CUSTOMER SERVICE. How many places can say that? In a day and age where customer service is seriously lacking (especially with the larger corporations, ahem Verizon), Mrs. G.’s knows whats important. As a third generation family owned company, Debbie Schaeffer is doing a phenomenal job following in her family’s footsteps, staying true to the company and their mission and providing the best products at the BEST prices.

Santa? You still there?

What’s your favorite day of the week? Mine is Sunday, hands down. Sunday’s are a day to spend with family and catch up on the previous week. My typical Sunday includes going to my in-laws for a nice Sunday dinner (consisting of pasta and meatballs) and going to brunch with my mom and husband.

One of our absolute favorite places to go for Sunday brunch is Fedora’s Café in Lawrenceville, NJ. Fedora’s is a mom and pop coffee shop with tons of flair and personality. The server’s wear t-shirts with sayings such as “The suggestion box is full”. Local artist’s paintings line the walls and the chairs and coffee mugs are all mismatched which helps add to their artsy coffee shop vibe. They offer a very cozy atmosphere, complete with comfy couches.

This past Sunday, my husband, mom and I headed to Fedora’s. We all usually order off their “specials” menu, as it changes every week, though we have tried items off their regular menu. I ordered the Banana Caramel Belgium Waffle, which was to die for. Four huge waffles, homemade cinnamon butter, caramel sauce and about a pound of fresh bite size bananas, sprinkled with powdered sugar and complete with an enormous bowl of maple syrup. My husband ordered their Breakfast Sandwich Special, which had fried eggs, bacon, and cheese on a Kaiser roll served with their homemade, piping hot hash browns. Mom ordered their Mexican Omelet Special with beans, a variety of peppers, onions, salsa, tons of cheese and their signature hash browns as well. My mom absolutely loves the Chai Tea at Fedora’s, but my husband and I usually just stick with decaf coffee.

I also learned something new about Fedora’s this weekend. They do cakes! During the winter they always house an amazing homemade gingerbread house, but I never knew that they did cakes to order. I watched a couple carry out a huge specialty cake and the family next to us was picking out a cake for their son’s first birthday party. I believe they went with the fire truck. Too cute! They have a book of designs that you are able to look through or you can even bring in a design of your own and they will replicate it. Sunday’s must also be “cake order day” since I saw another woman bringing in a goody bag to copy for a cake design.

Time out! I haven’t even mentioned their insane dessert case. Fedora’s has the most amazing desserts ever. I wish I could tell you I have a favorite, but that would be impossible. The dessert case stares at you from all angles of the café. It’s impossible to leave without grabbing something.

I don’t think I need to even ask what you are going to be doing next Sunday. Fedora’s is the place to be for Sunday brunch. They are also open during the week for lunch and dinner or to just hang and veg out with a latte or their “Serendipity for 2.”  Check it out for yourself.   It’s no wonder they are Zagat rated!

Also note they have some great bands on Wednesday nights from 6:00-9:00 p.m. An abbreviated brunch is offered on Saturday’s and my favorite extravagant brunch on Sunday’s (which includes lots of great specials if I didn’t already mention that).

Hours of operation are Tuesday-Thursday 8:00 a.m. – 10:00 p.m., Friday & Saturday 8:00 a.m. – 11:00 p.m. and Sunday 8:00 a.m. – 12:45 p.m. Please note: last seating is one hour before closing time.

Fedora’s is located at 2633 Lawrenceville Road in Lawrenceville, NJ (609) 895-0844.
