It wasn’t ready for patio lovin’ and I wanted a fire so we went inside and found a spot next to the fireplace.
It was very nice and extremely warm. It was lovely!
I decided not to have eggs, that is my go-to breakfast. I chose french toast and this version was so pretty! It was bread pudding topped with swiss meringue sitting on a berry compote and topped with pretty flowers. Seriously, flowers on any plate make it so appetizing for me and I sit there looking at my food as if it is art.
My friend had the eggs benedict, also incredibly beautiful.
Their eggs are always perfection, done with the sous vide method. We each had a hot beverage, me with a latte and her with a chai.
Breakfast was lovely and we lingered for two hours nursing our food and our drinks. The conversation turned to travel and we spoke about where we’ve been and where we are going. There was a tiny bit of career talk – not work but chat about our careers and how we got here. Honestly, it was one of the more interesting conversations that is only usually saved for my university buddy. It was a complete delight! Finding people you can connect with over food and coffee is such a treat. As an introvert, I fear long conversations will exhaust me, but that wasn’t the case. I think the key is to find someone who is interesting and isn’t emotionally depleting is the key.
We only left because she had an appointment at 12:30, and they needed the table but not once did we feel rushed. The atmosphere, food and conversation made Little Brick a complete delight. I recommend bringing your bestie or someone you want to get to know better and enjoy breakfast by the fire. Hopefully, the patio will be open. If it’s not, there are several different rooms to choose from, each equally charming.
