I tried a very small bite of the dip for the pita bread. It tasted a lot like cream cheese, and I didn’t hate it at all.
Grilled grapefruit. It was extremely difficult to eat and my spoonful ended up being more juice than a fruit, but it was another new flavor for my narrow palate.
Front: squash soup
Like I said, I tried teeny tiny bites of a bunch of things. I also wanted to save room for lunch (and dessert) so I probably wouldn’t have gone too crazy anyways).Shortly after, it was time for lunch. I had looked at the menu online prior to coming to the event so I had a pretty good idea of what I was going to get. I decided on the three cheese grilled cheese on sourdough and it was delicious! Oh my gosh the bread tasted fresh, the cheese was extra gooey, and the house made potato wedge fries were incredible! I can’t tell you the last time I had french fries. It’s probably been a couple of years at least and I ate every last bite of this meal.
look at all the cheese stuffed inside. Yum.
another popular dish among the other brunchers. I didn’t try it because I don’t really eat eggs but they were raving about it!
I almost ordered this challah french toast and kind of wish I had. It was enormous so we all tried a few bites. This variety was bourbon soaked with bananas. The alcohol was extremely strong so I didn’t love that aspect but I would have gotten the one stuffed with chocolate instead
Obviously when the dessert menu came out, we were stuffed but how could we leave without sampling almost the entire menu? That includes dessert. We decided on almost everything on the menu. It was all amazing. The homemade s’mores with cranberry marshmallow stole the show for me.
This one is the peanut butter marshmallow s’more.

The grilled pound cake was good although I got a piece from the corner so it tasted a bit dry. Someone else said the middle was perfect though. The chocolate cake was okay, but nothing to write home about, and I already told you how I feel about the s’mores. We also ordered the drunken three musketeers ice cream but I didn’t try it. I heard it tasted extremely boozy though, so I’m glad I didn’t.
I left on a full stomach and made the drive home before I caught my flight back to Baltimore. I took a little chocolate home with me though
one of the many places I found chocolate on my hands
Hopefully I’ll have another opportunity to dine with the brunchers when I come home in May! I’m so glad I got to meet them all and they had some really great things to say about careers and living in Boston that I will be able to use when it’s time for me to start looking at internships, jobs, and hopefully apartments in the near future!
