I was provided lunch at K & B Emporium located in Clear Lake, Iowa to facilitate my review. All thoughts are 100 % honest and my own.
I was very impressed the very moment that I entered K & B Emporium. I love how the restaurant and store are nicley appointed. I especially like the old light fixtures, wooden floors, lighting and the general atmosphere.
For lunch I ordered one of their healthy grab and go turkey sandwiches and I ordered there homemade chicken noodle soup which had lots of chicken, celery, carrots,noodles and more in the soup. There Chicken Noodle soup was seasoned perfectly and had an outstanding flavor. My cousin ordered their ham & cheese sandwich. My cousin and I loved our sandwiches that had Swiss cheese in them and were on a fresh ciabatta bun. Our sandwiches had a generous amount of meat in them. They have lunch specials.
We ate some of there salted caramel popcorn and some of there homemade fudge. The fudge reminded me of Grandmas homemade fudge. I love all kinds of snack items that have salted caramel in them.
The first floor of K & B Emporium is where we had our soup and sandwich. The clothing boutique, 5 Stone Salvage Furniture and vintage goods are all located on the first floor. The clothing is very stylish and elegant. I loved the the re-purposed furniture. I noticed a lovely table made with an antique door for the table top and a nice wine cabinet and much more. They serve Chocolate Shoppe ice cream which is a Wisconsin based Co.
The second floor of K & B Emporium has Anna’s Ballroom, fine dining and a rooftop patio and the large front dining room can be rented for your special events. The main dining room has a bar that was removed from an old hotel that was being demolished in Penn. The bar has elegant wood in it and ads an old world charm to the dining room. The dining room also had elegant light fixtures that were in an old mansion that was being torn down in Texas and from another home in Penn. I love the old original wooden pocket doors and the old original wooden floors that are in the dining room. The dining room holds 222 people. The restoration that went into turning this building built in 1904 into K & B Emporium was a great labor of love and it turned out be be a great treasure indeed.
The dining room serves fork to table food and they offer daily specials. They use R O K service. They heat up a hot stone square and place your meat on it for the ideal cook for your meat. The menu changes according to what is available at certain times of the year. For more information : K & B Emporium.
The basement has a wonderful wine cellar. They have wine tastings that you can sign up for. They have a large selection of wine for every wine connoisseur in your family. There wine cellar reminded me of the elegant wine cellars in Europe.
K & B Emporium has reasonably priced quality meals with a fine dining experience, eloquence and top notch service.
I would highly recommend K & B Emporium to all of my family and friends. The perfect place to relax and have a pleasant meal and a glass of wine and treat yourself to some new clothes, furniture and more.
