Saturday morning I convinced the beau to take me to Annabel’s for brunch.
I also say convinced because the beau has one true breakfast love, and its First Watch – but that’s another story.
After agreeing if there was a wait at Annabel’s we could go to
First Watch elsewhere, we headed to the restaurant. Upon pulling up we saw several groups of people standing out front and I could tell the beau was already thinking of his First Watch order.
Luckily (unluckily?) they had room right away for the two of us at Annabel’s. Sorry First Watch, we’ll see you
tomorrow another day.
Annabel’s is all open spaces, framed food photography and boasts a cafe style menu.
The Toastie looked amazing to me: butternut squash, havarti cheese, portobello mushrooms, pesto and caramelized onions on a grilled flatbread with my choice of soup or salad. Um, hello – all my favorite things on one plate? Okey dokey. Except one thing was missing…..
It took the Toastie from amazing to Out.Of.This.World.
I wished we saved room for one of the homemade baked goods (Hello Coconut Cupcake!); but we sadly didn’t.As we were finishing up; I asked the beau how he liked his meal; and he begrudgingly admitted that it was pretty delicious (he had opted for an egg, cheese and sausage crossaint sandwich), it was no First Watch, but still pretty good.
