Dine & Dish: Devil’s Food

With deeply colored red walls and mix matched d├ęcor, this neighborhood bakery serves up brunch with quirky and enduring style. For the many morning diners waiting for a taste, there awaits menu offerings ranging from savory to sweet and a large pastry case filled with even more sweet selections.

On this spring morning, we ordered omelets – egg white style. Varieties tried were the Feta and kalamata olive, Caramelized onion and bacon, and Tomatoes and feta cheese omelets. Each omelet was fluffy and served with potatoes and daily bread. We also tasted a side order of cheesy grits which were as promised – cheesy. The Caramelized onion and bacon omelet was my favorite as it struck a balance of indulgent and fresh flavors that refreshingly did not require a post-brunch, food-induced afternoon nap.

Final word on Devil’s Food: Heaven is a little place named Devil’s Food.

Dine & Dish: Bonnie Brae Ice Cream

For 25 years, this neighborhood favorite has been dishing up scoops of creamy goodness to satisfy even the biggest sweet tooth. A favorite flavor in my house is the Cookie Dough ice cream served on a cake cone. My personal all-time favorite is the Sinfully Cinnamon of which I cannot seem to get enough of.

Final word on Bonnie Brae Ice Cream: Housemade ice cream worthy of a walk, drive or trip across town for a delicious scoop.

Dine & Dish: Waffle Brothers

With the tag line of “Serving one warm waffle at a time,” this little waffle shop is growing a big reputation for serving up fresh, flavorful, and inventive waffles.

This morning we sampled The Huffman and 4 Corners - Both in the All Natural Whole Wheat waffle version. The Huffman was served simply with butter and syrup and offered a true tasting of the waffle itself. The whole wheat waffle batter is sweetened with honey and banana and is hearty enough to stand up to many toppings. Speaking of many toppings, the 4 Corners waffle offers just that – four toppings, one in each corner. My toppings included fresh strawberries and bananas, blueberry compote and Nutella. It was finished off with a sprinkling of cinnamon and as you can see, it was thoroughly enjoyed.

Final word on Waffle Brothers: Awesome, affordable waffles.
