After 5: The Cottage, Lake Worth – Happy Hour on the Patio

October 7th, 2010 · 1 Comment

The Cottage, Lake Worth

Happy hours: Noon to 7 p.m. daily.

The crowd: From office workers to beach-goers to colorfully dressed personalities, depending on the time of day, they gather here.

Surrounds: The outdoor patio is popular, whether you’re sitting at the bar or relaxing at umbrella-covered tables arranged in living room settings. You see everyone from high-heeled young ladies to people wandering across the street from the downtown condos. Indoor bar seating is also available.

Barback: The hostess greets you promptly and the servers are attentive and happy to answer questions.

The sips: House wines and beers and well drinks are all good deals. Our house cabernet was $3 and the well drink, Jack Daniels and soda, was only $3.50.

The noshes: The small plates are all fair game. There are nine selections to choose from, all at half price for most of the day. We chose the Pulled Pork Sliders at $5 and the Beggars Pouches at $6. The sliders are offered with either seasoned pulled pork and house BBQ sauce or mini beef burgers.  The dish comes with a big heap of french fries. We were satisfied. But we really were delighted with the Beggars Pouches, small pasta pouches stuffed with pear and gouda and sautéed with brown butter and garlic. The dish comes with toasted pine nuts, capers, tomatoes and basil on the side. Nice!

Tunes or noise: A background music mix didn’t disturb conversation.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5 olives.
