I LOVE BRUNCH! Is there anything better than sleeping in on a Sunday, rolling out of bed and heading out for Mimosas or maybe a Bloody Mary with some breakfast and lunch all rolled into one? Before our trip I searched best brunch in SF and Farmer Browns was on every list.
It’s a Soul Food spot in the heart of the city and I figured it would be nice to have a big, decadent meal to hold us over until our late dinner reservation. It also had a great menu that included all the classics; cheesy grits, biscuits with sausage gravy, collards and pecan pie. I had my heart set on some Chicken and Waffles. When we arrived at 10:45, and the line was down the street, I knew I was in for a good meal.
Now, service was super slow and the place was packed but if I’m truly judging, just on the food, it was really, really good. The biscuits were fluffy and salty (we got a extra plate gratis since we waited so long). The cheesy grits were super cheesy and very addictive. And, the Chicken and Waffles were absolute Soul Food perfection. The chicken was crispy, juicy and perfectly cooked. The waffles were yeasted, light, fluffy and the perfect match to the chicken. It was covered in golden maple syrup and I couldn’t have been happier. The best part was I knew already knew the two recipes I would combine to recreate this amazing meal.
