Brunch at Supper was a mixed bag. The good was very good, and the bad was well, awful. We didn’t get off to a good start when I dropped the other two members in front of the restaurant while I went to park in the nearby Superfresh lot. I walked into the restaurant five minutes later and found that the host had refused to seat them until “the entire party had arrived”. Hmm, hardly welcoming.
We ordered from the brunch menu and tried the smoked sweet potato soup , the daily selection of deviled eggs and the Farm greens and herbs salad. This turned out to be the good, the bad and the ugly. The soup was absolutely superb – possibly the best soup I have tried in months. The deviled eggs were OK, although the server made no effort to explain what each of the four half-eggs were stuffed with – and the salad was truly terrible – a total mismatch of random tastes. (The waitress recommended the salad to us, so she did remove it from the bill)
The hit of the meal was the chilaquiles navidad: (two eggs, tomatillo braised corn tortillas, housemade chorizo and red and green salsas). The red and green makes the Christmas/Navidad! Beautifully prepared and presented – I can highly recommend it!
We skipped dessert because of a self-imposed time limit, although I noticed a few folks chowing down on the banana sticky toffee pudding with some relish. On a final note the coffee was pretty bad – it wasn’t very strong and had almost no “coffee” smell.
So – if Supper could get it all together and consistently produce food like the soup and the chilaquiles it would be 5 stars. As it is, between the less than forthright welcome, mystery deviled eggs and poor salad – it gets a middle of the road, under-achieving 3 stars. It could do much, much better – I’d like to think we caught them on a bad day as I’d certainly get the soup and eggs again.
(Parking note - if you park in the Superfresh lot you get complimentary parking with a $10 grocery purchase. Since it costs about $10 to park for 2 hours - it's a good deal!)
