Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Day 238: Shady Lady - Brunch

Our monthly brunch group decided to try a new spot today.  Shady Lady is one of the restaurants in the development along R Street between 14th & 15th Streets.

Mr. E and I had gone there for cocktails once when it first opened, but we'd never tried any of the food.  All of us were very pleased with our brunch experience today, as good food, tasty coffee, and attentive service (thanks, Stephen - you were great!) made for a winning combination. We'll definitely return for another brunch outing.

The menu had something for everyone, including pancakes for M, which is always an important consideration.  Mr. E ordered several sides to create his own perfect combo of 2 eggs, biscuits & gravy, and hash browns; S had 2 eggs and blueberry pancakes, most of which she ended up taking home to share with N since the order was so large; and I had the veggie omelet with avocado instead of green onions and hash browns prepared without bacon grease (yay!); and we all shared an order of beignets to start off the meal.

Mr. E and I figured this would be a preamble to our upcoming Thanksgiving trip to New Orleans, where we plan to enjoy the coffee and beignets at Cafe du Monde.
