Actually I will tell you I checked out the menu before we went in my mouth started watering the reading it. But more about that in a minute
Sanford's Restaurant had been around for a long time and it was a neighborhood diner kind of a throwback as my aunt explained. There was always a line out the door and it was a very popular eatery with the neighborhood folks
Recently the restaurant, recently expanded, took on a new eclectic look and created a menu filled with unique savory and sweet offerings.
A few of the items that immediately caught my eye were the nutella waffles, the French Toast Panini and the Spinach & Feta spring rolls.
The restaurant also offers a pretty inviting brunch menu served with choice of Mimosas, Bellini's or Bloody Marys. Since it was a weekday and I had to head to my daughter's Girl Scout meeting after eating, I passed on the alcohol but the fact that it was an option midweek makes this place very special.
In spite of it being breakfast time I was craving some of the savory dishes including the truffle mac & cheese and the butter not squash ravioli in a sage butter sauce.
There's no question that I need to come back here, most specifically with my older daughter who is a foodie like me.
So in the end I decided to order the spinach and feta spring rolls. I was surprisingly happy to see the size, which were fairly large and served with a creamy dipping sauce on the side.
I struggle between the Nutella waffles and the French toast Panini.
Filled with caramelized bananas and chopped pecans with Challah bread french toast, I went with the panini and let me emphasize just how delectable it was! Topped with powdered sugar, I dipped away into the maple syrup and it was heavenly on my tongue.
My dear aunt opted for the blueberry pancakes and said they were fresh light and Dee- Lish
I really like the atmosphere with its interesting lighting and combination of shiny accessories and wood Decor, it made for a relaxing and Manhattan-esq dining experience!
