For much time now, my mom and I have loved spending Saturdays out and about. Running errands, shopping, eating lunch at our most favorite restaurants and bistros. For the past few months though with so many things going on.. as well all know, it’s been a little hard to do any of that up until recently. As we have our spots that we adore where we live, we have the the biggest hearts for The Hotel Hershey. It has been since last year that we’ve made an appearance there, so we decided that it was absolutely time! Yesterday our schedules were cleared, so we got all dressed up, picked up my moms sister, and decided to have the most perfect day strolling the grounds of the Hotel Hershey, admiring it’s beauty. Even though it was such a cloudy, almost rainy like day.. it was just what all three of us needed, and then some!
Our first stop was lunch! We arrived around noon and had reservations at the elegant Trevi 5. They serve such unique, tasty Italian plates that go above and beyond your expectations. At a place as classy as this Hotel, you might experience reading things on the menu that you aren’t extremely familiar with, but that honestly doesn’t even ever matter when it comes to this place! If you’re curious about it.. try it! You will not regret it. When my mom and I go out to enjoy a meal, we love trying a various variety of dishes, so the best thing for us to do is share! It’s a bonding activity, along with getting the opportunity to endure more than one delicious, and delectable plate of food.
- The pizza is dressed with marvelous marinara sauce, sprinkled with fresh mozzarella cheese, then topped with pieces of meatballs, and spicy, salty pepperoni rings. It was just oh so good!! The perfect pizza if I do say so myself.
- The plate to the right that appears as being more green than a normal pasta platter, resembles one of the options on the menu that I was describing earlier. About how you might not be as familiar with it as something like a pizza! This glorious green dish is filled with the summer flavors of fresh peas, bluefoot mushrooms, parmesan cheese, fava beans, and fava bean sauce. All wrapped around fluffy, and super silky ricotta filled gnocchi. If you have never had gnocchi before, you must!! It is truly an eating experience that you don’t want to miss out on!
We sat outside for a while extending our lunch as long as we could. Relaxing and enjoying cocktails out on the rooftop, watching the birds fly around us waiting to see if they could grab a bite as well! Lol. 🙂
After lunch we decided to do a little shopping in the downstairs lobby, strolling in & out of all the small, cute boutiques. Then we still weren’t ready to leave, and since we spent some time burning off our meal, we came to the conclusion that it was time for coffee and dessert! The Harvest outside the hotel on the grounds, next to the pool is the best place to go if you’re craving a good indulgence, or even locally grown food if you haven’t had your lunch yet! Even though I opted against dessert because I didn’t wanna have a guilty gut for the rest of the day, I definitely still enjoyed a cozy cup of coffee with my girls! We are coffee people for sure, and we love it!
- This stunning end to your meal is a caramel coated cheesecake with a chocolate cookie crust. It was said to be as amazing as it looks!
Saturdays are meant for fabulous food, fierce fashion choices, and cool cocktails. Anything else is just as waste of time, and energy. 😉 If you need peace, and a day of relaxation.. not worrying about anything for a little while, visit The Hotel Hershey! It is a wonderful, wonderful time Diamonds.
