we’ve been trying to eat brunch on saturdays at new places. by friday night, matt has usually had enough of mickey’s, and i’m kind of growing tired of the crowdedness at brunch.
so, we’ve tried the old fashioned, sardine, the come back in, and most recently, the tipsy cow. next on our list is the manna cafe, el dorado, and tex tubb’s taco palace; maybe daisy cafe, too.
in case you were wondering, the come back in was just about as bad as it was 10 years ago. i didn’t mention this to matt, but there was a faint hint of halitosis as i brought my crab cake benedict up to my mouth. his french toast looked good, but it was made from, what appeared to be, dinner roll french bread slices.
the old fashioned walleye and eggs is always a hit with me. matt didn’t like his ham, tho. too dry. we went back recently because i was craving lox, and einstein’s bagels has them beat.
sardine was delicious. the smoked salmon sandwich was delightful. matt didn’t care for the sweetness of the tomatoes in his omelet, but he ate more than usual.
the tipsy cow didn’t disappoint, either. their smoked salmon (sensing a theme?) grilled cheese was pretty good, albeit a little greasier than i’d like. speaking of grease, matt’s double-burger was dripping with it, and he finished it! we also tried their farm raised alligator bites. i’m not sure what group of foods alligator falls in, but i don’t think i’m missing out if i never try it again.
