|Bay Area Beignets|
Now that Boston is just getting over the big Juno blizzard, I’m getting homesick for the warmth & sunshine of San Francisco back home! When I went back to visit for the holidays, brunch was a must. After all, meeting up with the girls for brunch is always a good idea! We met up at Elite Cafe in San Francisco’s Lower Pac Heights, a neighborhood filled with adorable boutiques and cafes that seems like it was created for brunching.
Elite Cafe specializes in cajun & creole cuisine, so everything is packed with flavor and super hearty! We started off with a couple Bay Area Beignets (above), both of which came out impossibly warm, soft, and scrumptious.
Three of the four of us ordered the drool-worthy plate you see above: The Meetinghouse Benedict. This dish came complete with biscuits, ham hock, poached eggs, and a great hollandaise sauce. I wished the eggs were a tad more runny on the inside, but all together it was an hugely flavorful and hearty meal.
Above is the equally hearty Alabama Scramble, with scrambled eggs, bacon, mashed pot Alabama Scramble potatoes, biscuits & gravy. It’s hard to beat a brunch like this!
We spent the rest of the afternoon walking off our brunch and perusing the adorable shops nearby. Wouldn’t it be nice if every day could be a Sunday like this!
