Saturday seems to be my brunch day. My girlfriend was in town, we hit the streets early around 11. There was no wait, and they had inside seating under a beautiful skylight. Over the hostess table was a sign for a punch, I saw tequila and immediately was elated. Once we were seated I asked the waiter it was leftover from the previous nights special. Slightly disappointed, I ordered a mimosa, my girlfriend order the punch of the day. Both drinks were good. They make a pretzel, it’s warm, with grain mustard and salted butter, amazing. It’s on the menu twice, it is a favorite. I went with an egg white omelet, it had fresh herbs and was served with pickled onions and avocado. The combo was great, very savory. The farmer’s breakfast, on of their signature dishes, sunnyside up eggs, three kinds of meat, potatoes and toast. She ordered the eggs scrambled the concept was still the same. For dessert we had pancakes, the were delicious. Light fluffy, just enough powdered sugar and served hot. They had a couple of other interesting dishes. I would go back again for dinner and drinks.

For brunch, I do prefer to stay local, Brooklyn! My girlfriend from Boston was visiting and recommended this place. We had a array of items, I of course had the fried chicken. It was hot, crispy and had an amazing hot honey sauce on it. We had pancakes at the end of our meal like dessert, they were really good. They served homemade potato chips with my son’s breakfast sandwich. We had two types of baked egg dishes. Grits with cheese, deviled eggs and potato pancakes were our sides. I had a tequila based drink, my usual. I enjoyed the chicken, deviled eggs and pancakes the most. If I wasn’t on a quest to try as many restaurants as possible I would definitely go back.

Unlimited brunch, it’s now 2 hours and $43. It’s actually enough time to feel fantastic when you leave, so I won’t complain. The restaurant is really clean and pretty. There’s an outside patio that has seating. I’m a fan of mexican food, guacamole, tequila all of it. This place has all of the above. We ordered guacamole of course and pretty much one of everything on the menu. The chicken and waffles, shrimp and grits and fried yucca were my favorites. They put a spicy citrus glaze on yucca, it was amazing. The tacos, fried plantain, pancakes and huevos ranchero were good as well. I had margaritas, they were magnificent and flowing. Definitely will go back.

I started making a list of restaurants I want to go to. This was on my list, since I was actively dating, why not start here? The claim to fame at this place is the chicken and waffle sandwich. I started with deviled eggs, my date was pleasantly surprised. It was slightly pickled and had a piece of homemade potato chip on it. We ordered shrimp and grits, the chicken and waffle sandwich of course and mac and cheese. I’m not a fan of shrimp, the grits were very good. The mac and cheese was on point. The chicken was moist, crispy and the waffle was light and slightly sweet. The melted cheese and pickle gave it a nice savory taste and whiskey maple syrup and some sweet. The combo was amazing. We had mimosas as the perfect accompaniment. There was a wait, it was worth it. We sat in front of the kitchen on high stools. I would definitely go back.
I have completely fallen off. For more reasons than I can even list. Day by day, I’m going to try to catch up. My son had a random Friday off and I decided to go here with him. I heard the chicken and waffles were good. He had scrambled eggs with cheese, home fries and toast. It was normal, nothing spectacular. My chicken was super moist and seasoned wonderfully. The waffle was light and crisp. The butters on the side were delish. Blueberry, lemon and herb. We also had the mac and cheese, it was so hot and cheesy, it was great. He had fresh brewed peach iced tea, I had apple ginger soda, it was amazing. I would go back and try a more savory dish.
I had a two people I know mention this place to me. They both said the mac and cheese was great. I found an available moment and went with my friend, her family and my son. We just beat the brunch rush and were seated right away. The ambiance was rustic, high open ceilings it was nice. That also made it a little loud, though. May not have been the best choice for our crowd, which included children. We ordered drinks first. Somehow they managed to forget mine, I ended up getting it with my meal for free. We were a party of five, the food took longer than what we were expecting. Once it arrived, I had no complaints. My son ordered the full English breakfast, eggs, English pudding, English bacon, fried tomatoes, beans, turkey sausage, black toast, potatoes and mushrooms. It was a lot of food, they all went pretty well together. He couldn’t finish it all. I had chicken and waffles. The waffle was light and had whipped cream on it. I barely needed any syrup, that was great. The chicken was crispy, tasty, lots of flavor and piping hot. We also had two orders of steak and eggs, one with potatoes and one with french fries. The fries were great, I skipped the steak. And finally wings, hot and the mac and cheese. You could smell the heat from the wings on the table, they were good. The mac was served in an individual skillet, I love that. It keeps it hot the whole time. It lived up to its hype, it was hot, melty and the used a smoked gouda, wonderful. My late drink was a ginger beer, it was worth the wait. I would go back, sans children.
I wasn’t originally going to write about it but I got a lot of questions about it. I tried to go one evening after work, it was sold out. They have other pastries and great looking treats, my quest was for the Cronut. My relationship is transitioning and it’s making me feel very sad. To cheer myself up one morning I hopped off the train at Spring Street and joined the line for the Cronut. I was going to be at work early had I not made this detour. I’m calculating I have about forty minutes to get it and get to work. Ten minutes pass, now twenty at thirty I wonder if it’ll happen. A woman behind me says ‘it’s so worth it, wait a few more minutes’. Right after she says that an employee comes out and lets us all in, whoop, whoop! I learned on line that there’s one flavor for the month, February’s is Raspberry Lychee. I’m not a fan of the cooked fruit, I figured it’s a Cronut it’ll be different. You are only allowed to buy two. The lady behind me bought my other one. I got to work with two minutes to spare. The Cronut looks and smells amazing. The packaging is super unique. It was like nothing I’ve ever tasted before. It was buttery, flaky and layered like a croissant but shaped and flavored like a donut. Hence the name Cronut, best of both worlds. It was just enough to bring me a bit of happiness. I’ll be back next month for another flavor, I can hardly wait.
I saw this place on a television show. I figured hey, it’s in Brooklyn and looks interesting. Went online, saw something on the menu that called my name. My home girl from Boston was coming into to town and I figured we’d go there for brunch. It was crowded and a thirty minute wait. We opted to sit on high chairs by the open kitchen. I found a vanilla vodka based drink, it was light perfect for brunch. I ordered the Migas, it’s basically a Mexican inspired egg dish. The guacamole was tasty, it could use a kick of heat though. The tortillas were served warm. My friend ordered a bunch of sides. Nothing on the menu was that interesting for her. Cheese grits, a biscuit, eggs, sausage and home fries. The biscuit was average, the home fries were a little crisper than I would’ve preferred. The cheese grits were really good. I saw a few drinks that were interesting and the fried chicken sounds good. Not sure that’s enough for me to make my way back anytime soon.
I had a scheduled dentist appointment in Carroll Gardens. I thought it would be nice to have a breakfast date, didn’t happen. Instead of being disappointed twice, I went on to breakfast alone. I had looked at this place before for lunch or dinner. I saw they were open for breakfast, score!! When she seated me she immediately offered complimentary still water, I loved the bottle. I browsed the menu, before she could tell me the special, I saw it. Chocolate croissant french toast with bourbon maple syrup, whoop there it is. It was served in bowl with the syrup at the bottom, it was piping hot. Chocolate all melty, it was amazing.
Breakfast was a happy surprise, I will go back for lunch or dinner.
