We started with a lemon poppyseed doughnut, which had a nice fluffy consistency and a standout lemon flavor. It would probably go very well with coffee, but we had brunch cocktails instead.
I had the banjo, a bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich on a biscuit. I am normally not a biscuit fan, but the flakiness and buttery goodness of the biscuit won me over. The eggs were slightly runny, which was a bit messy, but still complemented the breakfast sandwich well. The potatoes were nicely browned and seasoned, with the onions adding a nice touch.
And finally, the dessert— deep fried apple pie with vanilla ice cream. The ice cream nicely balanced the overpowering sweet flavor of the pie. You definitely needed to eat a spoonful of both to appreciate the dessert. While I did not achieve a foodgasm like the last time I had pie here (banana cream pie, I still want you), it was quite delicious.
