Piedmont Brunch

Posted by DID 10 Mar 2016 No Comments

Over the years, Piedmont has had several iterations of brunch – remember when a small bluegrass band would play every Sunday? Remember when you could stroll in after hitting the farmers’ market and enjoy that elusive beast – Saturday brunch? (Consider this our plea for bringing it back Piedmont.) In it’s current iteration, even though it’s only on Sundays from 10:30-2, Piedmont is giving Vin Rouge a run for its money as – yes I’m going to say it – the best brunch in Durham. Yep, Piedmont is currently throwing down THE best brunch in Durham.

Check out the bread menu:

This? This is french toast made with some kind of other worldly bread sourced from none other than Loaf topped with house made apple butter and sassafras syrup. They’re calling it brioche, but this is unlike any other brioche we’ve seen. I do recommended adding a side of bacon to this dish.

This is your “classic” breakfast. It’s Coon Rock Farm’s bacon, perfect eggs, a biscuit with honey butter, and the thing that really sets Piedmont brunch apart – house made tater tots. Instead of me waxing poetic about these tots – really, just go try them. Seriously, go eat the tots.

This is a country ham omelet, would have loved a little more country ham but you can never really have too much country ham.

This is their “vegetable casserole.” It’s basically just a really good frittata with caramelized onions on top.

And these are Anson Mills cheese grits. They are Anson Mills grits with a lot of butter and a lot of cheese – do you really need to know more?

Go to Piedmont brunch. If you want to enjoy the booze juice, go after noon. Trust me, order the tots.
