As soon as you sit down, you will be handed two baskets of steaming hot scones/biscuits, accompanied by freshly made strawberry jam. Hands down I could just eat these scones for breakfast. They are crumbly and soft. Move over Martha Stewart, whoever is making these babies in the kitchen is a force to be reckoned with. Once all the scones are gone you will probably want more, and that’s okay! They’ll give you some more. When you feel like you’re too full to eat anything else, you can then take a look at the menu.
The menu is chock full of incredible dishes- sections of eggs benedict, pancakes, soups, salads, hot and cold cereals, burgers, sandwiches and of course, the brunch specials. If I were in the mood for lunchy brunch, I would definitely order the Grilled Turkey Zucchini Burger. I think that sounds amazing. But since this was a breakfasty brunch, I went for the Bubby’s Breakfast: two free range eggs from Shady Maple Farm with toast and home fries. I always order poached eggs. They were perfect on top of the chewy, crusty seven grain bread. The home fries were amazing. I am skeptical of home fries- they are usually too greasy or too chewy or too burnt. These were the best combination of grease, chewiness and some burnt pieces. Mixed up with some ketchup and I was in heaven.
Another side dish option is cheese grits. While I am not exactly partial to the cream of wheat-esque dish, Liz loved it. She said it was creamy and delicious. Maybe next time I’ll give them a try…
The dishes you are seeing right now are the Granola Fresh Fruit Plate and the French Toast. I have to start with the fruit plate. How beautiful is that? With a small cup of granola and yogurt, you are given a massive plate of fruit. Andre the giant would be happy with this much fruit. He might even need to take a doggie bag. And of course, French Toast is a classic brunch option. At Bubby’s this dish is piled high with sweet toast and berries. Don’t forget a generous sprinkle of powdered sugar too.
I honestly have never loved brunch so much. Bubby’s is a gem. You can tell when you arrive because the line is out the door. Unfortunately they don’t take reservations, but the wait is definitely worth it. The waitstaff is very accommodating and the service is speedy.
