HAPPY 4th OF JULY!!!
One of my absolute favorite restaurants is called Schooner or Later. It was even featured on the Food Network's Diner's Drive-Ins and Dives with Guy Fieri. I went there last Friday AND Saturday (yes...I love it that much) for brunch with my two sisters, brother-in-law, and niece...and it didn't disappoint. Most people go there for the Bloody Mary's, Mimosas, schooners of beer, and outdoor seating with an amazing view. You usually have to wait for about an hour on the weekends before getting seated (but that's when the Bloody Mary's and Mimosas come in). They also have great coffee....my love.
One of their famous dishes is "The Mess." I get it almost every single time. You can even get the "Half Mess" if you're not feeling starving. The Mess is described on their website as "This world famous, local tradition is a tasty blend of chopped ham, onion, and bell pepper grilled with hash browns and eggs. Topped with melted Cheddar cheese. Served with sourdough toast." You can even top your Mess with Chili, Avocado, or Sour Cream. I recommend topping it with chili! Their salsa is amazzzzzzing and goes great with The Mess. They have other things on their menu, but if you go there, go for The Mess!
Here are a few of the pictures from our amazing brunch at Schooner!
