Fancy Brunch at Caren's
Feeling a little fancy, a gal pal and I headed to Caren's for a little prix fixe brunch. Located in the adorable area of Rosedale, it was quaint on the outside and a whole lot of style on the inside. Upon entering, you are greeted by a piano. Well, la-di-da. The booths and bar area '. I've never felt underdressed for brunch until that day.
We sat down and ordered coffee and mimosas, of course! Service was quick! The coffee was fabulous and the mimosas made me think I'd never had a real one before. Glad I didn't drive! The first course arrived, delicious cheese biscuits with butter and jam. They were warm and so, so good. Carb-, if you will.
I had Eggs Benny; don't look so shocked. Large pieces of bacon lightly fried on toasted muffins. The hollandaise sauce was definitely made in house. So good! Just the way I like it! The mixed green and strawberry salad with it was so good. That dressing made it! What's brunch without dessert? The Gluten-Free Chocolate Cake was screaming my name. It was rich and as luxurious as it looks. What a great end to a great brunch.
I'd love to come back for dinner, can you get mimosas at dinner? ;)
