Week 10, WHAT UP!!!

Casbah was on the plan for this week. Joining me was Andrew and Autumn

With a long day ahead of I had the foresight to plan a later brunch (12:30pm), which caused a large amount of nostalgia: as soon as I walked into Casbah I saw all the *fresh* graduates brunching with their families. Am I old, now?

ANYWAY, later on Sunday was my (ex) GM’s going away party, so I decided to fuel up for the “festivities”.
Prix fixe menu: appetizer, entree, and a cocktail/drink for 28$ AYEEEE

Cheese plate: 9.5/10
Scallop fry: 7/10

You can’t go wrong with cheese plate.
Scallop fry was good. Scallops were cooked perfectly.

Ended with a cup of coffee because my life is not complete without caffeine.
*not pictured* : a killer glass of Lambrusco too ❤️ 


Week 5


So week 5 was accidental brunch at The Yard in Shady Side. I preface this post by mentioning that I was only slightly hungover from the evening before.

To combat my dehydration and headache Autumn and I sat down for a lovely afternoon lunch (which I’m using for brunch).

Chicken and waffles: 5.5/10. The coffee was good. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
But really the main and interesting part of this brunch was the service staff. Our server was attentive and did a great job (so being an industry individual, you get an auto 30% tip). HOWEVER, the guy that must of had the section next to us was one of the most entertaining individuals.

PICTURE THIS: A server sits down with you at your table to talk to you about beer, is continuously singing like we were outside a casting call for Les Miserables. I was just generally amused by him. 10/10, sir.

Week 4


This was my first time at Spoon! Got to chill with my girl, Autumn and proceeded to bitch about work.

I had the Braised lamb toast, which is a little out of my comfort zone. Usually my go to’s are things with seafood BUT you deserve 9/10.
Coffee gets 10/10
Pretty sure they just started their brunches not too long ago and it was superb. Not to my surprise, the kitchen staff their is excellent.
Everyone should try their brunch. 👍🏼

Week 3

Muddy Waters

OKAY. So, this was only the third week and my planning is not too sound yet. I decided to crash Andrew’s work place and hang out at the bar for brunch.

*SIDE NOTE: I thoroughly enjoy eating alone at a bar*

I started with a seafood sampler that consisted of oysters, shrimp, lobster and a glass of SPARKLING WINE!

THEN, Lobster eggs Benedict, which is only getting a 6/10 today. Solely because the country ham that was on it was entirely too salty. I totally get that country ham is supposed to be salty but it kinda assaulted my taste buds. Anyway, the lobster meat was killer and the hollandaise was *kisses finger tips*

Oyster/ shrimp/ lobster sample platter (9.5/10)
Lobster eggs Benedict (6.5/10)



Week 1


Week 1 of brunch adventures takes place at Urban tap in shady side.

Eggs benedict w/ salmon, capers, ya know, the works.

I got to enjoy this first saturday brunch not participating in drinking, which is out of the ordinary for me.

This was my first time at urban tap in Shady Side. The fact that they have a 100 beers on tap, as an industry person, I couldn’t help but wonder the process and length of cleaning and rotating the kegs in what I can only imagine is a massive keg room.
A sober brunch, on a Saturday (don’t judge me).

Had a lovely time catching up with Hannah and Abby.

RATE 7/10
