We finally motivated ourselves to try Sette Luna’s jazz brunch this past Sunday. We were there the night before for my dad’s birthday so we had a chance to peruse the brunch menu and get fired up for it. Turns out there’s no live jazz as i’d assumed – just over the sound system. Just rechecked the website and it seems they have live jazz on the patio in warmer weather. I couldn’t care less either way. I just wanted some food.

It was great that their full beer list was available. The whole cereal grain aspect of beer makes it such a logical pairing with breakfast. I kept it light though and went with the raspberry lambic. Was it fruity, you may be asking? Quite fruity! How can you tell!? They currently have a Blanche de Brussels on tap – light and lemony with a hint of honey – that would have been great too.

My wife had coffee and fresh squeezed OJ followed by fresh peach nectar. They also offer apricot.

The menu isn’t extensive. And there are a maybe a disproportionate number of dishes with smoked salmon. But you’ll find a unique array of options and Sette Luna’s twists on classic breakfast fare. I went with the Tuscan Benedict – poached eggs, pancetta, and swiss chard on a split muffin with homefries and roasted grapefruit.

My wife had 2 eggs over easy with roasted asparagus and shallots. And homefries and roasted grapefruit as well. The roasted citrus had a nice flavor, though it was a bit awkward to eat with a knife and fork. Could’ve requested a spoon I suppose.

They start serving at 10:30 am. Not much of a crowd by the time we left around noon – i definitely expected some post-church business. I’m sure it’s a different story when it’s not 30 degrees out.

We finally got our butts outta bed a couple Saturdays ago to hit the Easton Farmers’ Market for the first time this season. It’s a nice walk down College Hill for us and the dog and it’s a great opportunity to buy locally produced foods. We generally try to grab breakfast on the way to the market – either at the Quadrant Book Mart or the Third Street Café. As good as the food is at the Quadrant, it can be a bit chaotic and tough to get a table. Third Street Café’s food is great and the service is tight. Plus, compared to the Quadrant, the sidewalk seating is more generous and gets full shade on hot summer days – two good things when we have our pup with us.

Their menu is a bit more gourmet than your standard breakfast fare, but don’t worry – there’s nothing too exotic and the portions are great. And they have a number of specials in addition to the core menu. My wife had an artichoke and cheddar omelet and I had tender scrambled eggs with sausage and sausage gravy on biscuits. Both dishes came with sides of soft breakfast potatoes flavored with a peppery sauce. I’m used to a crispier, greasier style of homefries, but these were a nice change of pace (though I still prefer crispier potatoes as a contrast to soft eggs). It was all great. And filling – we could barely finish everything.

To drink, my wife enjoyed some coffee while i had a strawberry smoothie – a good one, not a syrupy premixed sugar shake. They have an assortment of fruit and will mix you up whatever combo you like. I think they have music every Saturday for breakfast. On this day there was a guitarist – really pleasant and not obtrusive.

All in all, it was a really nice way to start our Saturday. We headed over to the farmers’ market and grabbed a local wine, some cookies and a cherry pie, and a pork loin roast before the hike back up the hill. Then… nap time.

I agree about the Third Street Cafe. We drove by last Friday night and place was hoppin’. Apparently they do a Jazz dinner the first Friday of each month. We’re gonna try it in April.

Just discovered Breakfast in the Valley. I gotta scan through her posts – we’re always on the lookout for a new weekend breakfast spot. I have to (again) recommend checking out Tracy’s Cafe for your morning meal if you’re ever up on College Hill in Easton. Nothin’ fancy for sure, but way good.

    For many Junes, this was my favorite cocktail. Yes, I realize that I sound particularly like a weird food writer person and not a person who lives among other people because most normal, sane people do not have a favorite cocktail for each month of the year, even if you agree with me — you do, right? –that a Perfect Manhattan is the ideal way to warm up on t […]
