My girlfriend and I dropped-in on Word of Mouth Bistro for Sunday breakfast.
Upon arriving, I noticed a full parking lot, along with about 10 patrons on the front steps of the restaurant, and another 10 people inside the front door. All of whom were waiting patiently for a table.
I've heard great things about Word of Mouth, so the line of customers was not unexpected.
We walked in, gave our name to the hostess, and waited outside. Twenty minutes later, our name was called, and we were guided to a corner table in the middle of the dining room.
The atmosphere was lively! We could hear dishes and silverware clanging in the back, while folks in the dining room engaged in energetic conversation.
Our server greeted us and informed us of the morning's specials. We perused the tempting menu while the server brought coffee and cream for my dining partner.
We decided on Biscuits & Gravy for myself, the special Crab & Asparagus Omelet for my partner, and two sides of the Crème Brulee French Toast (we heard it was amazing).
Although the restaurant was very busy, our food arrived in short order.
The tender biscuits were smothered in a creamy sausage gravy. The plate also included two slices of bacon and two eggs- sunny side up for me. As a dish, it was executed very well. It tasted like Biscuits & Gravy is supposed to taste. Nothing special or fancy, just pure and classic.
My partner loved her omelet. The crab (a surprisingly healthy portion), asparagus, and hollandaise sauce, complimented each other nicely. Her omelet was also served with whole grain toast with a delicious house-made strawberry jam, and skillet potatoes.
As for the Crème Brulee French Toast, it was as good as we had expected. The creamy and soft center was encased in a sugary crisp crust. Best French toast I've had!
Friendly service, great food, and a bill of around $25 before tip? I'll be back for sure.
