Farmers Fishers Bakers' Brunch

Man oh man - the brunch at Farmers Fishers Bakers really goes all out! M and I tried out this weekend brunch recently and I really thought the variety of items was great. I also really loved how there were a number of food stations AND passed dishes that went from table to table, offering fresh items as well.  And don't worry about missing any of the tableside items if you are up at the buffet, because they come back A LOT, seriously.  I started to feel bad for the Eggs Benedict server that we had to keep saying no to over and over again, haha.

As you can see there is much more than your standard brunch fare here - on this plate I got a bruleed grapefruit, watermelon (with mint?), salsa, freshly made guacamole, chips, thick-cut bacon, kale salad, and a dab of crab dip, I believe.

One of the tableside items was this deliciously gooey cinnamon roll, yum.

The fried chicken was. AWESOME. I totally would've gotten more if I hadn't gotten all of this other food haha.  On the bottom right is a pulled pork taco in a crispy corn tortilla, like a corn crepe almost, as well as some rice/pasta mix, a meatball, and grits.

There are also a lot of desserts to choose from, and anyone that's a fan of sweet items during brunch is welcome to grab a few desserts as your meal, haha.  This beignet was puffy and sweet, but not hot, unfortunately.

Yay for cute desserts in a jar! This banana pudding was really good - the wafers inside weren't soggy and stayed crunchy which I liked, and that whipped cream on top was especially delicious.  

Overall I thought the brunch at Farmers Fishers Bakers had a TON of dishes to choose from and it was a relaxed and fun way to get to try a little bit of everything.  We never felt rushed during our meal, which was nice because we could chat leisurely as we ate, and take breaks in between hitting up the buffet area, haha. I would definitely come back again for brunch!
