So my mom, sister and I went to Winslow’s Home today for brunch.
Every time I think of Winslow’s Home, I’m reminded of Carl Winslow:
Am I the only one? Did anyone else watch Family Matters as a kid? Best. Show. Ever.
Back on topic! We went to Winslow’s Home for a lovely brunch. Located on Delmar Boulevard in University City, MO, Winslow’s Home is a cute little building with a lot of character.
It reminded me of a more upscale Cracker Barrel. Lot’s of cute kitschy goodies, as well as wonderful food with lots of local ingredients. Let’s dig in!
If you follow me on twitter, you know how obsessed I am with chai lattes. They’re rich, creamy, and spicy…and the chai latte at Winslow’s Home was no different!
I enjoyed every drop.
My sister ordered a hot chocolate, which she enjoyed.
All together now:
Winslow’s Home offers many delicious options for breakfast, brunch, and lunch. I decided to go the brunch route and order a breakfast burrito. It contained eggs, spinach, crème fraiche, goat cheese, and a few other goodies that escape my memory. It came with a creamy sauce for dipping.
Delish! The eggs were soft and warm, and the goat cheese added a layer of depth that I really enjoyed. So creamy!
My sister went with the french toast. It was covered in sticky sweet maple syrup, fresh bananas, and bacon.
She wasn’t a huge fan (said it was too soggy from the syrup), but I stole a bite and thought it was pretty good. It tasted like they cook some banana in with the batter. Very strong banana flavor, if you’re into that sort of thing.
My mom ordered pancakes with butter and syrup. I snapped a quick photo before she dug in.
I also snagged a bite of her pancakes, and they were light and fluffy. She seemed to like them as well.
I was quite stuffed after my breakfast burrito, but that I managed to save some room for this:
3 words: Goat Cheese Cookie. Delightful! My mom spotted this in the case and urged me to try it. I’m always up for trying something new! It was soft and cheesy – it tasted just like a cheese danish in cookie form. Wonderful!
Service was quick and super friendly. It wasn’t long after we placed our orders that our food came out to our table, fresh and hot. However, while the food was tasty, it was a bit overpriced for my tastes. Breakfast for 3 came to over 30 bucks. Ouch.
Food: 3 stars (out of five)
Ambiance: 4 stars
Service: 3 stars
Value: 2 stars
The food was decent, but at those prices, I’m not dying to come back. However, this is definitely a great place to relax and chat with a friend over a hot cup of coffee (or chai!).
Until next time, friends!
