Went to Newport, obviously there was Lobster

Breakfast, TravelLizComment

Corner Café Delivers for Brunch!

Last weekend, I had a fantastic weekend in Newport, RI with about half of my MBA class. The weather cooperated and many lobsters sacrificed themselves to a higher purpose. Christine and I were SUPER pumped in our bibs waiting for the lobster!

Once the lobster arrived, I couldn't help myself from taking a photo with my yummy buddy.

  We had a moment....then I broke his neck. Oops

I am an empathetic person, so I put myself in the lobster's shoes...

  You must appreciate a good pun - it cracks me up too!

We had some time the day before we left, so Christine and I researched the BEST spot. We found the Corner Café (http://www.cornercafenewport.com/) and we were not disappointed!

I don't know about you, but I always struggle with brunch. To go sweet or savory? Luckily, I had a kick ass brunch buddy (Christine!) and she struggles with this too!! We decided to order one of each and go halfsies!

For savory, we ordered the Cowboy Scrambler. It was eggs scrambled with ham, BACON!!!, jalapeno peppers, onions and pepperjack cheese. It was going to be served on top of sourdough bread, but we didn't want soggy bread, so we got that on the side (solid move). It was topped with sour cream and salsa. So good!

The potatoes were awesome as well and were a nice complement to the scrambler.

For sweet, we got the Wootens Sweetbread French Toast, served with homemade maple pecan butter! I prefer hot syrup (so it melts the butter and doesn't make the entrée cold) and they were happy to heat it up - love the service!

  The powdered sugar adds extra drama

I loved the different flavors from both of our orders - it would have been too much to just have all the French Toast, so the eggs were a great contrast! I also loved the bottomless coffee - it was always kept full. Great service!

If you're in Newport, you must check this spot out!

Cheers,
