Yes, it was long but the get-your-own coffee station and mini cups of hot chocolate handed out by owner Mike Moccia while you wait make it go by quickly!
When we sat down, I was impressed (and a tiny bit overwhelmed) by all of the choices on the menu and the specials board.
There were several different varieties of french toast, waffles, pancakes, and eggs benedict. While we decided, Mike and his super friendly staff brought over some plates for us to share: Belgian Waffles and French Toast, both piled high with fresh fruit and whipped cream. The french toast was my favorite; the caramelized bananas were a great touch.
Having the chance to try some of the sweeter options on the menu made my decision a little easier, and I settled on the corned beef hash with over easy eggs and a grilled corn muffin. You simply can't go wrong with hash and a runny egg, and I enjoyed the added flavor of the red peppers.
The corn muffin was too good not to share, and after passing it around the table several of us agreed it was our favorite thing we tried!
Thanks to Ball Square Cafe for hosting, and to the owner Mike and his staff for being so friendly and accommodating! It's nice to find a place in the city with a small town diner feel and some creative twists on classic brunch dishes.
