This is our favorite place to come for dinner or lunch but on Sunday they also serve Brunch.
The interior is two rooms, both with a fireplace with a roaring fire going. The tables and chairs are all wooden and the walls are painted a colonial color which I call cabinet makers blue. The decor is all very early American but the menu is very 2000's.
The Brunch offerings are varied and all excellant. It was very hard to choose between 3 egg omelettes, corned beef hash and poached eggs, eggs florentine, eggs benedict, tenderloin benedict, blueberry pancakes, belgian waffles and cinnamon raisen french toast just to mention a few.
I decided to try the cinnamon french toast. I got three large slices of toast. They were not texas toast but they were not thin either. They were loaded with raisins and cinnamon flavor and were served with real maple syrup. Yummy. I got a side order of homefries as well and they were red potatoes done crispy with seasoned salt on them. Enjoyable .
Cindy got a three egg omelette with spinach which was huge and much enjoyed.
The service was a little slow to start because our table hadn't been assigned to anyone but once someone noticed us we were well taken care of.
I would recommend this restaurant as an interesting breakfast stop if you are in the area on a Sunday but I highly recommend it as a dinner stop Tuesday -Saturday. Their lamb is to die for (they do it two ways with a mustard crust or a merlot demi glaze) and they have a gorganzola fillet that my husband raves about and he is a steak expert. They also have a small bakery on the premises. We all love their desserts. They have blueberry peach cobbler that melts in your mouth served warm with ice cream and the worlds best tapioca pudding.
