Friend of a farmer

Ah, the dilemma with weekend brunch is always that anywhere worth going also has a crazy line. So when we only had to wait maybe 25-30 minutes at Friend of a Farmer this past weekend, we considered ourselves lucky. I really loved the interior of this place - it felt like we were dining in someone's home. Unfortunately it was crowded and cramped, and I was with three others who I didn't want to make suffer as I took pictures, so these were all taken really hastily and I'm not happy with them. I actually hesitated to post these, but I did want to still share. It's just that this place invites such great photography, and I don't think I did it justice!

I'm a sucker for Eggs Florentine so I went with it, but it was a tad on the bland side, and I sorely regretted not getting the blueberry pancakes I was eyeing. Ah well! I was at least happy with my super pulpy orange juice.

  5. I know exactly what you mean when mentioned that you didn't want to make the other 3 you were with suffer while taking photos!

    Great shots, so glad you shared - and I agree with Howie, you definitely made a crowded space look like a private, comfortable breakfast in someone's home.

  7. I like these photos and do not feel any sense of urgency at all so I'm happy that you shared them - especially the last photo with all the jars lined up and the rustic, homey Christmas tree in the foreground. Absolutely festive!
