Oh, Dear Me, Oh My, that meal was good.

Walk down a side street, slip through the door, and end up in a small quaint place to chow down (maybe not even noticing the bar upstairs).   A little bit Alice in Wonderland mixed with a little bit hipster, there are plants hanging upside-down from the ceiling and whimsical detailing on the walls (see hip and Alice), Dear Me is simply appealing. Oh goodness it’s good.

Start out by ordering a tea and get yourself one of these fancy little pots you see there in the picture.  And then, indulge.

The eggs Benedict are runny.  Just juicy enough to run through the holes of your fork and drip onto your clothing, a sign of eggs ben success.

Bacon, fresh bread, and syrup, yes, yum, delicious.

The mushroom truffle frittata carries a powerful taste profile that skips around the palate. Definitely the best choice for breakfast.  It’s a bit pricey but worth every penny.  Add the scrambled eggs for protein  and heartiness.

Beware, the menu is confusing, not calculus confusing, or spelling confusing for those of you who think you are just so clever with your math skills, but it’s misleading, the pricing is  inconsistent.  And, sadly, their milk and cookies is just not up to par with what the true meaning of milk and cookies is, they serve a biscuit (out loud sigh).  They can stick to the food and we’ll do what Milk & Cookies does best…….milk and cookies. Overall a nice dining experience with a good brunch.
