For Mother's Day Brunch, ten of us dined at Savory Tastes Cafe. I had been to brunch there last year and had a very good meal. As last year, the menu this time included breakfast dishes, appetizers, soup, salads and lunch entrees. All of the non-breakfast items are on their new Spring menu, which has been in place for less than a week. There were so many choices, making it difficult to decide what to order.
I eventually chose to start with an appetizer, the smoked Gouda Risotto with Slices of Duck. This is very similar to a dish they had at a previous wine dinner. And it was excellent! The Risotto was creamy, smoky and very tasty. The duck slices were meaty and tender. Highly recommended. I then had an omelette with crabmeat and gouda cheese. The omelette was stuffed with sweet crabmeat. Very delicious. It was accompanied by toast, crisp bacon and a bowl of potatoes.
The other people with me ordered such dishes as the ribeye, panko-crusted salmon, roasted pork loin, French Toast, and the Frittata. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals. All of the dishes had plenty of food. We even ordered dessert, from a tray of several choices including fruits tarts, mousse, chocolate flourless cake and a turtle cheesecake.
Service was very good, especially considering they only do brunch once a year. I hope that they decide to have brunch more frequently. The meal was excellent, as usual. Thanks once again to Chef Bell and his crew at Savory Tastes Cafe.
