I immediately fell in love with the weekend brunch menu at this place. Filled with everything ranging from spinach quiche to pumpkin pie french toast, brunch options were extremely decadent and provided creative twists on traditional favorites. I decided on ordering:
- Sunrise Surf and Turf: two crab cakes topped with crispy bacon, melted American, and two sunny eggs served open-faced on two slices of Le Bus country white toast and drizzled with sriracha aioli on a plate with roasted potatoes and fresh fruit
Wow. I definitely made the right choice. This dish was absolutely delicious as Conshohocken Cafe put a twist on the traditional crab cake benedict. The crab cakes were a great size, providing an ample amount of crab meat. The eggs were cooked perfectly, letting them run over the bread as you broke into them and encouraging you to use the toast to soak it all up. On top of all this, the sriracha aioli gave the entire dish a spicy kick, something you don’t get in a traditional benedict. I gladly welcomed it. The roasted potatoes were good as well. However, the main part of this dish stole the show.
The service was great. The servers, which were for the most part young (I’d guess they were most likely in their late teens), were on top of every table and continually refilled water glasses, coffees and made sure everyone was happy. The food came out promptly after we ordered and, even though the place was busy, we weren’t rushed out and had the opportunity to sit and relax as coffees were finished.
For what I received, as well as the quality of the food, the $15 I paid for the Sunrise Surf and Turf was right on par. I hesitate to say I’d even have paid a little more for this meal – it was just that good. I left with an extremely full stomach and a smile on my face. I’ll gladly pay $15 for that.
Conshohocken Cafe is a great weekend brunch destination. They do a great job providing creative alternatives and additions to traditional brunch favorites. I loved every minute of my meal and can’t wait to head back to check out some more of their brunch options. Next time I’m in the area I definitely will be back and highly recommend it.
