After a night of too many specials from Bob and Barbara’s, this was just the kind of brunch I needed to heal my hungover body and soul. Yes this hangover reached deep.
A large Ball jar filled with water and a cup of coffee is a great way to start the healing process. I love A Full Plate Cafe’s drinkware.
Biscuits and lemmmon curd by Baker E. E puts the mmm in lemmmon curd. That’s what I’m calling it for now on. I think you all should follow suit. As a brunch special, A Full Plate is offering a biscuit and one of E’s famous jams or curd for $3. What a deal!
I was in need of something eggy and smothered in sour cream. Don’t ask, it just happens sometimes. Their chicken breakfast burrito was the perfect option. The burrito comes wrapped in a whole wheat tortilla and filled with the fluffiest scrambled eggs you ever did see, southwestern shredded chicken and lots of cheese. I also wanted some mushrooms in it so they were kind enough to accommodate me and added some portabellas to my burrito. It also comes with A Full Plate’s awesome breakfast potatoes which include regular and sweet potatoes. Yay!
Burrito innards! Not the prettiest picture but I wanted you to see how full of eggy goodness it was.
My friend Meg got the tuna melt. I had a little bite. I’m not a huge fan of tuna melts but this one was good. She really enjoyed it. Take note, tuna melt lovers.
Dessert! Ok I don’t normally do dessert. It’s not my favorite thing. BUT. When you are at A Full Plate, dessert is a must. You know why? Because Baker E makes all of the desserts and SHE IS THE BEST THING TO HIT PHILLY’S SWEET TOOTH. Yes she is a close friend of mine but, even if I was in a terribly sad alternate reality where we weren’t friends, her oatmeal cream pies would still be my favorite dessert ever. EVER. This weekend they were especially large. I was greedy and ordered one all for myself. I’m bad at sharing. My picture looks pretty doesn’t it? Note to self: eat more brunch, better lighting for pictures.
The timing of this post is perfect because now you have a little taste of what to expect from A Full Plate’s brunch. I suggest that you stop by tomorrow for brunch and while you’re there visit the National Food Bloggers Bake Sale. I’ve got your Saturday all planned!A Full Plate Cafe 1009 N. Bodine St
