Where have you been all my life? As a brunching connoisseur, my main goal in life is to brunch the hell out of a town, but lately I’ve found it difficult – not to say that there isn’t some delicious brunch here. Oh no, there is but it’s not its own category. But this. The Roost is a brand new haven for brunch and the answer to all my breakfast prayers.
First, you have a bloody mary menu with six options. I chose the NoLaw (North Lawrence), which featured local pickles (pickled by the owner himself), the perfect blend of spices and garlic.
Then came the tomato + avocado benny. I can’t come up with the words to describe it’s perfection and flavor. I remember having to consciously keep myself from inhaling it (ladies don’t scarf food, no matter how scarfable it may be).
But the best part? That I get to come back and visit you again. And again. And again.
