Breakfast and brunch

Saturday after the wedding was another day of a ridiculous amount of eating. It started out innocently enough. We knew we were going to meet a bunch of folks for brunch at Counter around noon. But both of us are early risers and weren’t going to make it all the way ’til noon. So we went by Cafe Pedlar for coffee again and then got bagels.

Then later we headed over to Counter to meet up with a ton of people. We basically took over the back of the restaurant.

Now, I’ll give them a break on the service since we were such a huge group and arrived in waves. But again the food wasn’t worth the hype. I got the tofu scramble. It’s mostly up under the toast. I will say the potatoes were awesome. Nice crisp on them, soft inside. The tofu scramble was bland and uninteresting. How do you mess up tofu scramble? You can make it an infinite number of tasty ways. It’s inexcusable really.

Kevin thought his french toast was pretty good. But there should have been more of it.

Anyway, my overall impression from my two visits to Counter is that it isn’t worth the hype.

After brunch, we grabbed the rented evening clothes and headed downtown to return them. I’m glad I went with Kevin because I was able to see Trinity Church Cemetery.

Oh, we’re not done eating yet. Coming up, pizza and Veggie Conquest!
