Fruits of Labor - Alderson

I have been to a few Fruits of Labor Café locations; there are five total currently. The most recent one I have visited is in Alderson.

"You'll be greeted warmly at all five of our locations which are nestled in four different river valleys across West Virginia. Sometimes by a core staff member, other times by a neighbor in recovery or young person in an addiction prevention program. Both groups of students participate in our Nationally Certified American Culinary Federation Quality Training Program & Farm-to-Table Café and Bakery. Each time you visit Fruits of Labor, your purchase invests in our students and allows us to offer this training and certification free of charge."

At this location, you'll find sandwiches, salads and some specialty coffee drinks. I wanted to give the ham salad another go - "Southern Style Ham Salad Croissant: Featuring Ham, Onions, Bell Peppers, Sweet Pickle Relish, Mustard and Mayonnaise served on a Croissant."

I think the croissant was fresh, and I appreciated the fine consistency of the ham salad. I do think I like mine a tad sweeter? Without some sort of bold flavor, it falls a little flat. The pasta salad, on the other hand, was maybe a tad too sweet for my liking. But, it is all served in one of the coolest little buildings in the area and couldn't go toward a better cause.
