A great way for us to spend time together as a family - when Mom doesn't have to cook...
Last weekend we hit up Crave at the Shops at West End
for their new breakfast just launched this month!
From their recent press release...
CRAVE West End breakfast and brunch launched on Saturday, April 11 with dining available on Saturdays and Sundays between 8am-2pm. CRAVE’s team of five executive chefs created the all-new menu offerings. Signature items include Crab & Shrimp Cake Benedict, Braised Short Rib Hash, and the CRAVE Stack of buttermilk pancakes layered with brandied peaches and apples, and S’mores Waffles.
What would you have?
We each chose something different, and enjoyed sharing and trying a wide variety of things.
These were soo good!
They were rich, but not as rich as they look.
The chocolate waffles were so light and airy!
Chocolate Pancakes for our plain Jane -
She doesn't like to stray too far from the usual script.
But when she saw what I got...
Cap'n Crunch French Toast...
She was all over this instead!
Cap'n Crunch Crunchberries on the outsides, strawberries and cream on the inside!
Last, but not least -
The Creole Breakfast Scramble.
Sausage, Breakfast Potatoes, Onions, Peppers, Creole Sauce, Scrambled Eggs and Hollandaise.
This was another great choice.
Why doesn't my cooking at home taste like this?
What would you get for breakfast at Crave?
