Brendan’s 101: 101 Rowayton Avenue, Rowayton CT Brendan’s www.brendans101.com
Brendan’s 101 has been serving customers for over 23 years. They are well-known for their ice cream and lobster rolls and also their breakfasts. The restaurant is decorated with beautiful art, because it is also an art gallery and lots of maritime stuff, because it’s right on the river in Rowayton.
Today, we were lucky to have along a special guest who took all of the great pictures in today’s blog. His name is David Straiton, and he is my dad’s friend from California. Dave is a TV and Film Director, which is why the pictures look extra good today. Dave loves boats — so he really loved Brendan’s — and he also likes breakfast a lot — today he even went back for seconds!
Today I had French Toast with Honey Butter and Bacon. The French Toast was outstanding! It was light and fluffy and the butter was sweet! The bacon was crispy. Unfortunately, they do not make fresh chocolate milk at Brendan’s – so I had a Nesquick.
I spoke to Lisa and Jeff, customers who were getting their breakfast and asked them “What do they like on the breakfast menu”?
Jeff said, “I love the Egg Sandwiches” Lisa told me “I like the bagels”.
Even though it was very busy, I also spoke with Celeste, our server, about Brendan’s Ice Cream. I asked her, “What is your favorite ice cream flavor?”
She said, “I like the coconut ice cream”.
I also asked her, “Does anyone ever order ice cream for breakfast”?
She said “No”.
Maybe next time, my dad and I can be the first ones to do that!
