Every now and then, I'm fortunate enough to have brunch with a lovely group of lady lawyers. Brunch is always fantastic because we chat for hours and eat well. 10 Downing has been the brunch spot for a while now. Although I was exhausted from the red eye and sadly couldn't make it to see In the heights (sorry Ms. J), I did manage to eat brunch before falling back asleep.
I usually stick to eggs but today I felt like something different. Maybe it's because I had such good luck with pancakes all week. I ordered the vanilla-cinnamon pancakes with citrus compote. These pancakes are a new addition to the spring menu (as is the $12 bread basket, which used to be $10 - I'd skip it if I were you).
The pancakes were phenomenal. They were light, but not thin. Just a hint of vanilla and smelled like cinnamon heaven. The citrus compote was NOT delicious. Too tart and doesn't really go well with the pancakes. I highly recommend the pancakes!
I also ordered a side of eggs which were perfectly scrambled and although they tasted salted, they were not salty. Not sure what they put in the eggs but I was all about it.
