I love dinner! I love wine! I love dessert! But Lord help me, I love BREAKFAST! Especially when it’s warm and delicious! And Dahlia Lounge did not disappoint. I arrived at Dahlia Lounge around 10:30 this past Saturday morning, sporting my fall sweater dress, tights and boots – why? Because I have accepted that “summer” is over. Sad, but true!
Anywho...I arrive around 10:45am, excited and ready to get some delicious food! Jenny was running a few minutes behind so I ordered our dishes to share (since I had a college prep presentation in Tacoma to get to), and coffees for each of us. After a few minutes of conversation our food arrive promptly! The order – ummm – let me start by saying I LOVE Eggs Benedict! It is my breakfast/brunch dish of choice. One day I will make and master this dish at home. When I saw it one the Dahlia Lounge menu I knew, that was the choice for me! The house cured ham atop a English muffin, two nicely poached eggs, topped with scallion hollandaise and baby arugula, I thought the mix of flavors was well thought out and prepared. Also, accompanying this order was some fantastically PHENOMENAL parmesan potatoes. I will be replicating those and jazzing them up with some peppers and spicy seasoning!
We also ordered the famous donuts off the Dahlia bakery menu. They were so cute! They came fresh from the bakery in a "to go" bag –say what! How cute?! Then the server shook them up and presented them in a dish, paired with the seasonal jam! They were delicious!!
All in all this was a great brunch! From the coffee to the eggs to the donuts, it all went together well. And the cost wasn’t too bad. $17 as Jenny noted in her posting. I will definitely treat a friend to Dahlia’s Lounge for a birthday brunch! Is your birthday coming up? Message me!
