Hamilton's, you need to remedy that ASAP . . .
Once upon a time I was a girl who lived for brunch. I still love the sweet/savory/decadent combos that are so at home on a brunch menu. What I don't love are the ridiculous prices--come on, it's scrambled eggs!--and the waits. When you have an infant and a toddler those days when you could roll out of bed at noon to join a two-hour brunch line are long gone. These days if we go out for brunch we get their right when the place opens, eat and leave before the crowds descend.
We showed up at Hamilton’s at around 11am on a Saturday and were able to score a prime outdoor table. They’re a kid-friendly spot and have a ton of high chairs on hand and best of all the menu is super reasonable.
Here’s what we had:
Brioche French Toast ($9), thick cut brioche, spiced citrus custard, toasted almond butter, with mint infused maple syrup. While we were perusing the menu, we overheard the table next to ours gushing over the French toast so naturally we had to order it. I didn’t get to taste this myself because of the almond butter, but it was the hands down favorite of our group. Lawman-in-law described it as tasting “like the middle of a cinnamon bun.”
Next time (and there will be a next time soon!) I want to try their soju slushies…
