Nothing says “Saturday morning” like a mid-morning brunch with your favorite people. We’ve had some perfect Saturdays so far in 2015, and they all had one thing in common… BRUNCH!
Check out these local restaurants for some fantastic grub to start off your weekend right!
The Supreme Chicken Biscuit with pimento cheese and bacon jam from H&H Restaurant
- H&H Restaurant – Known as Georgia’s “most iconic restaurant”, H&H has a ton of character. It was a frequented spot by hometown heros, the Allman Brothers, and has a southern breakfast that you won’t believe. Now owned by the same restaurant group as The Rookery (another Macon favorite), H&H delivers an old-south feel with creative new dishes. My personal fave was the Supreme Fried Chicken Biscuit complete with pimento cheese and bacon jam… Yum! You have to forfeit your sleeping in for this one, though… They’re only open until 10:30 Monday through Saturday!
- West Egg Cafe – If you’re ok with a little drive, West Egg is well worth it. All of our ATL friends raved about West Egg for months and months, and once we tried it for ourselves, it became our ATL brunch go-to. Be prepared to wait (because it’s just that good), but feel free to have a fancy coffee drink while you wait from their coffee bar. As far as what you should try… The banana bread french toast is insane, the pimento cheese & pecan smoked bacon is my ultimate fave (apparently I really like pimento cheese for breakfast), and you can’t go wrong with the Peachtree Plate.
- The Casserole Shop – If you need something quick and inexpensive, you can’t do any better than The Casserole Shop. All of their specialty donuts are fabulous. Will & I were actually lucky enough the weekend we moved in to walk into the making of the most delicious breakfast sandwich in Macon… The sausage, egg, and cheese DONUT. Yep. I said it. And they serve it warm and fresh! The quickest way for Will to get me out of bed on a Saturday is to promise me one of these… and then we have to go on a run later that day… haha. While you’re at The Casserole Shop, you can also pick up a pan of Chicken Divan, Poppy Seed Chicken, or Lasagna to have for the week. It’s like brunch and weekly grocery shopping all in one!
- Finally, nothing beats brunch at home 🙂 This morning, Will woke up early and made a spread complete with scrambled eggs, pancakes, and coffee. It made a lazy Saturday morning feel fancy and special. You can never beat home-cooking, especially when hubby is cooking!
