I love brunch.
I mean, who doesn't, right? Brunch is the perfect mixture between breakfast and lunch plus it's also socially acceptable to have a cocktail before noon. You can choose to play it easy and have bacon and eggs, or go crazy and have a caesar salad and a piece of chocolate cake at 10 AM.
Here's my problem: it's hard to find a good, solid brunch location in 417-Land, which is why I was so excited to find a new favorite - Metropolitan Farmer, located at 2144 E. Republic Road in Farmer's Park.
Drink: $5 Bloody Mary Bar - Enough said, right? A $5 bill gets you a Bloody Mary plus a wide assortment of add ins including a variety of vegetables, sauces, spices, and my personal favorite, the candied bacon.
Eat: Beef Cheek Benny - Braised beef cheek and poached farm fresh eggs sitting atop a bed of homemade cornbread, drizzled with warm hollandaise sauce - $13
Eat: Omelet #1 - Omelet made with farm fresh eggs, stuffed with onion, Willow Mountain mushrooms, and Terrell Creek goat cheese - $9
