Anyone who is around me with any sort of regularity knows I have been all about locally sourced food this year. The ingredients are more fresh, it's great for the local economy and even better tasting in my opinion. After a wonderful night of food, drinks and fun...a good breakfast is the only way to get started.
I invited a friend with me for breakfast as good food is only better with good company. My first suggestion was Fresh Cafe on Corydon Avenue, I have been before but she had not. If it is your first time, be prepared as they can be very busy...especially on Sunday. Make sure you find a server near the front door and give your name as there is no host/hostess to greet you. It is often very crowded in this area on Sundays, with people enjoying fresh coffee, tea and juice based beverages while waiting for a table.
We started off with a Sweet Potato Latke. This was good, definitely what a latke should taste like. This comes from two seasoned latke veterans! Crunchy on the outside but soft on the inside with a nice texture. Not the best latke I have had, but very good.
We seem to have similar taste for food, and both chose the 2 Vita Eggs with Meat, Turkey Sausage. The yolks were a beautiful golden color, just like the sun. They are local, as are the sausages. I have tried the Bison Sausage too and I definitely prefer the turkey, there is so much more flavor. They are served with roasted rosemary potatoes, what a great start to the morning. I went with my eggs sunny side up and she had hers poached. This was all served with toast and home made crab apple jam.
By the time we finished, we were so full. I have always enjoyed Fresh Cafe's seasonal menu with as much locally sourced ingredients as they can get. We both had a great time and will definitely return again soon.
