Serpentine, Dogpatch

This post is a little old, since this brunch was actually on Mother's Day.  In a way this is a follow up to this post - we took my parents here the morning after our very triumphant dinner at Bistro Aix.  And, I am happy to report, it was a hit - we were able to check off all the boxes that make for a successful family meal with brunch at Serpentine.

Check boxes include: 1.  They take reservations  2.  They have awesome, non-greasy breakfast potatoes  3.  It's not too loud  4. The prices are pretty reasonable and 5. (Bonus!) They serve arugula on their egg sandwich.

That is the egg sandwich.  I got mine with scrambled eggs. It has a really tasty dill aioli on there.  Kev had his (below) with a fried egg and some pork sausage and was equally happy with it.

My parents both ordered the buckwheat pancakes (with a side of breakfast potatoes) and they were  pleased.  I was too full from my sandwich to take a bite, so you'll have to take their word for it. 

All in all, a very successful food weekend, including a dinner at home of tortilla soup and this rhubarb and raspberry crostata, which was not quite as pretty as theirs, but tasted amazing.

Happy (belated) Mother's Day!

Bookmarked. Good to find non-greasy breakfast food like that. And I like their bar inventory
