We stopped at Consciousness Blossoms for brunch this morning.  While I sipped on some pineapple juice, Loren started off with some chick pea soup.

I’m not usually a fan of chick peas, but this soup changed my mind.  Aside from needing a little pinch of salt, there were a lot of tasty flavors going on here.  It all melded together very nicely.  He also decided to try the Hunza pie.

It had spinach, brown rice, cheddar cheese, tomatoes, yogurt and a pinch of curry.  The curry was a little too strong for me, but he really liked it.  The whole wheat pastry crust added a nice crunch and he even liked the slaw that came with it.  He said it was a mix of cabbage and soy beans.

I love their croissant breakfast sandwich.

They make the fluffiest eggs I’ve ever seen here.  The croissant is fresh, light, and buttery and the side of potatoes are perfectly cooked.  The whole meal was fresh and tasty.  Total bill with two drinks was $24.

Brunch


We usually go to an early movie on Sunday morning and then grab a bite to eat afterward.  I like going to Daddy’s Grill because I can get breakfast until 2pm and Loren can grab some lunch.

Loren went for the pastrami sandwich and veggie beef soup.  They make a tasty soup here.  I was craving biscuits and they were perfectly with my ham, eggs and potatoes.  There’s nothing fancy about the food here.  It’s simple food, done right at a great price.  Total bill was $17.

Loren got the Spanish burrito and I went for the ham, egg & cheese croissant.  The croissant was buttery and fresh and I had to hold myself back from ordering some of their other pastries to go.  Loren enjoyed the burrito.  It had chorizo, eggs, and cheese and a fresh salsa.  Total bill was $15.

  • We were on our way to Sarasota and stopped at the Sage Biscuit Cafe for brunch.  It was really busy this morning.  We had about a 20 minute wait for a table. They have seating both outside and in & since the outside seating was in the shade we were ok sitting out there.  Everything on the menu sounded good and we finally settled on breakfast for me & lunch for Loren.

    He ordered the salmon BLT with the cucumber salad for his side dish.

    He really enjoyed it.  The salmon was perfectly cooked and the cucumber salad had chick peas and herbs and other veggies plus a tasty dressing on it.  He couldn’t stop eating it.  I went for the Sage Biscuit breakfast platter.

    There was more than enough food on this plate and everything was well seasoned and tasty and only $9.99.  The biscuit was amazing.  It had a wonderful savory flavor to it.  So many restaurants serve very plain breakfast potatoes, but these had a delicious spice mixture on them.  The French toast was thick and filling.  I was stuffed by the time we were ready to leave.  Definitely a place we’d return to next time we’re in Bradenton.  Total bill with a drink was $25.

    Another Broken Egg Cafe opened recently in Clearwater in the Northwood Plaza on McMullen Booth Rd.  It’s a chain breakfast restaurant and there was about a 15 minute wait this morning.  We were there with friends and three of us ordered the Lakeshore scramble and Loren just got the city grits & some scrambled eggs.

    The grits were really good.  They had garlic, onions, gouda, bacon, tomatoes & green onions in them.  As for everything else, it was pretty standard breakfast fare.  Nothing that made any of us say we just had to come back.   We weren’t too impressed with our waitress.  She didn’t seem like she wanted to be there at all.  The restaurant also has an open ceiling which makes it louder in there than it needs to be.  Total bill was $18 for the two of us.
