The Screaming Rooster

We decided to try the Screaming Rooster for brunch on Saturday, a new place in the former location of Mary's, Of Course. When I visited their website I became quite excited about their use of local ingredients and commitment to seasonal flavors. Upon entry, we were met with a very pleasant and quaint atmosphere and friendly staff. The decor in the bright and airy dining room was reminescent of a well-appointed B&B or a cozy cafe. There are  fresh flowers at every table and a specials board that looked delicious. What else do you need?

Well, my brunch companion needed coffee and that quickly arrived. After the initial drink orders, we perused the menu for awhile and I was stuck between the French toast with marscapone cream and berries OR the Mushroom and Asparagus Quiche. I went with the quiche and it was a great choice. Served with a rasberry muffin on the side, the dish was also accompanied by a gorgeous fruit garnish with strawberries, orange, watermelon, plum, and raspberries.

(I took a bite as soon as I got my food before remembering to take a picture!)

My favorite brunch companion ordered "the Morning After" breakfast which included scrambled eggs, breakfast potatoes (which were GREAT) , thick cut bacon, and thick-sliced toast. He was especially impressed with the toast- all the bread at the restaurant is provided by the local Three Sisters Bakery and this bread was GREAT- thick cut, poppyseed farmer's bread served with whatever type of jelly/jam you might like.
After we paid our bill (delicious brunch for 2 for less than $20!), the restuarant started filling up fast as the noon crowd moved in. I was pleased to see that business is going well! On the way out, I couldn't resist snapping a picture of these macaroons displayed at the register. Can you say beautiful?
