The only thing I like better than breakfast is brunch. I get giddy when I find a great breakfast spot. That’s just what Founding Farmers is. The mantra at Founding Farmers is “quality and natural ingredients”. Actually, as the name of the restaurant suggests, Founding Farmers is a celebration of the American farmer. We stumbled on Founding Farmers after spending a night in the city for the Oprah Life You Want Tour, where this happened…
So much fun!
Breakfast started out with a a pot coconut green tea because the only thing better than a cup of green tea in the morning is cup of green tea infused with coconut.
Then it was onto the mainstays.
My family of four devoured:
Bourban French Toast
Beignets served with caramel, strawberry and chocolate sauces
Strawberry and Cream Waffles
I’m usually reluctant about ordering waffles for breakfast because most places don’t get the texture right and many times the waffles lack depth in flavor. These waffles had both a great texture (slightly crispy on outside, soft and fluffy on the inside) and flavor.
Scrambled Eggs with Cured Ham
We also ordered a sausage, mushroom and spinach and scramble. What can I say? There are so many options at Founding Farmers. There is something for everyone and from what I tasted I would go back for sure.
And those beignets…you just have to try those.
