We got together with two of my favorite ex-coworkers and fabulous friends for a wildly delicious Sunday Brunch at Grand Street Cafe. Jo and Linda were two of the first people to befriend me when I first began working at our retail store and they will be friends for life. Therefore, it was a joyous occasion to reunite and catch up. It was icing on the proverbial cake that our brunch fare would be a joy as well.
Grand Street Cafe is a stylish little hangout behind Winstead's off Grand street. I'd heard fine things from friends and coworkers about this place and now I see (and taste) why. The decor is creatively sleek and the people-watching is first-rate. The food, as it is, was the thing, though, and the price was even better. For $15.95 a person, one gets a savory entree that is accompanied by a generous appetizer buffet. Jo and Keith went with the Down Home which included scrambled eggs and homemade cheddar biscuits. Linda and I chose the quiche of the day which was filled with spinach, white cheddar, ham and green onion and topped with a cheddar-cheese fondue. Best Quiche Of My Life....it was a wowzer. The appetizer buffet was bursting with goodness, from peel-and-eat shrimp to cinnamon doughnuts to creamy hummus. There was even an added bowl of housemade cinnamon rolls placed in the center of the table. We sipped steaming stainless steel cups of coffee and Linda enjoyed a Bellini Martini with peach vodka and Prosecco. Grand Street Cafe is a terrific deal that features food to write home about.
It was terrific getting together with Linda and Jo at such a fine food emporium. We will most assuredly return to Grand Street Cafe.
