My Huckleberry addiction continued on Sunday morning with my parents, sister, and Kyle.
Since it was a weekend morning, the place was packed, but at least we got to watch them make bread while waiting in line.
And ogle over the baked goods.
Maple Bacon Biscuits. Whole Wheat Raisin Scones. Apple Almond Cake.
Whole Wheat Fruit Slices. Zucchini Teacake. Blueberry Ciabatta.
Flatbread of the day.
Macaroons. Peanut Butter Cookies.
Whole Wheat Shortbread Cookies. Ginger Teacake.
Mini Chocolate Cupcakes. Chocolate Chip Cookies.
So which look best to you? If they were vegan, I’d be all over those peanut butter cookies. Or the whole wheat shortbread cookies.
But back to brunch.
My parents both got lattes with gorgeous decorations in the milk.
I could have taken a million photos they were so purrrrty. I settled for half a million instead.
Say adios to the frothy feather…
My plain coffee seemed so boring by comparison, but it hit the spot.
My parents shared a coffee cake, but once lunch arrived it took the sidelines.
They wrapped the rest up to take on the road with them.
My dad ordered the Breakfast Burrito with eggs, potatoes, leeks, cheese, guacamole, salsa, and sour cream.
Kyle got the same, but with sausage added.
Marie got the Fried Egg Sandwich with sunny side up eggs, Niman Ranch bacon, Gruyere, arugula & aioli on country bread.
My mom and I got the same dish, with a slight difference in the preparation.
Quinoa, spinach, and butternut squash with two organic free-range poached eggs.
Hers is above, mine is below. Can you tell the difference? Probably not.
Mine is made with medium poached eggs and no dairy.
At first I thought the spinach was too bitter, but after a few bites I was singing a different tune. What really pleasantly surprised me was how sweet the butternut squash was.
Her yolk was all runny. Ick. I just can’t get on board with that eggy texture (or lack thereof).
Mine was more solid.
To be honest, I’m not so keen on savory breakfasts…I have them every once in a while when the mood strikes, but it’s pretty rare. I prefer starting my day off with sweeter things (i.e. coffee, fruit, or oats). That said, I’d definitely order this again, whether it’s morning, noon or night.
How do you start the day off? Savory or sweet? Or does it change based on your mood?
