Ladies that Lunch and Hussies that Brunch!

One of my very best friends suggested we go to brunch on Friday morning since we both had the day off. Since I am THE FOOD HUSSY - I was told to pick the spot! I chose Annabel's in Mt. Lookout because it's in close proximity to both of us.

Annabel's a really cute spot on the Square in Mt. Lookout with a couple of tables outside.

Inside, it's just as cute. It's a very modern decor with amazing food photography around the room. There's a blackboard with the days specials and the counter is COVERED with the daily desserts! (We did NOT indulge.)

I ordered the daily scramble - it was a veggie scramble with a warm croissant and a cup of fresh fruit. The scramble had an assortment of veggies - to which I do not remember - and feta but they were kind enough to sub goat cheese for me. I'm just not a feta fan. I did enjoy the eggs - they were light and well cooked. The croissant was warm and toasty and delicious. The fruit was fine - a little sprinkle of sugar would have been nice.

Kelly got the "croissanwich" - that's not what they call it - but that was basically it. It was scrambled eggs with a roasted tomato sauce and topped with bacon. She ordered it with bacon and it originally came with sausage (which looked amazing) - the server corrected the order very quickly. She seemed pretty happy with the sandwich.

She also had ordered coffee and it was originally cold. Again - the problem was rectified quickly. I guess my thought it they might want to take a bit more care and double check things before bringing them out.

Overall - the price was fine - it was about $10 each which isn't bad for a fancy little brunch. By the time we were done, Annabel's was packed with lunching ladies. The hours of operation are a bit narrow - thus unless you're a lady that lunches - you might not find it open.
