This month, I went to Earl’s Happy Hour Brunch twice. Both times were at the newly opened, BEAUTIFUL Station Square location. Both times were glorious.
Brunch is every Saturday and Sunday and holiday, and Brunch Happy Hour is from open to noon on those days. During that time, all of the brunch food options are $9.75 and drinks are on special too!
The first time, I had invited my girls for a surprise “Bridesmaid Proposal” where I shower them with gifts and tell them that they’re going to be my bridesmaids. But as fantastic as that went, that’s not the point of this post. The food options during Brunch Happy Hour are the point.
I had the Eggs Benedict (of course) which came on toasted artisan bread instead of english muffin, classic hollandaise, ham, served with their yummy crispy potatoes.
I’m not a fan of potatoes but I really like Earl’s as they were seasoned very well and were very crispy and yet still fluffy and moist inside!
The poached eggs were perfect runny consistency but a bit small…I guess that’s free-range eggs for you!
Miz Brown Sugar had the Avocado Super Brunch but as she was vegan she omitted the eggs. It came with smashed avocado, olive oil and tomatoes, radish, spicy sriracha, toasted hemp seeds on toasted artisan bread with field greens. She said it was really good and it was really cool that they would do the modification.
T-Dog and C-Dizzle basically had the Eggs Benedict also but without the ham and substituted avocado instead. For no extra charge! They truly were awesome!
Since I had such a great experience, I had to bring AngryRussian for a revisit!
We started with $5 Signature Caesars and they were massive and delicious. There was a perfect amount of spiciness and I loved the rimmer! It came with a pickle quarter, and interestingly…a thin pepperoni stick!!
It had crunchy onion bits I think and was just so yummy!
AngryRussian chose the Chorizo-Mushroom Hash which also had avocado and crispy fried potatoes, topped with poached eggs and hollandaise.
It definitely wasn’t the most beautifully plated dish but he said it was delicious. His exact words were “Potatoes were crispy, eggs were perfect, hollandaise was delicious.” I had a couple bites (which again is a big deal, since I’m not a fan of hashes because they’re all potato!!) and I had to agree.
This time I had their Southern Fried Chicken + Waffles which came with maple syrup. This was a huge portion with big pieces of moist, perfectly seasoned and fried chicken. The seasoning was a little spicy but not too much so.
The waffles were the thick Belgian kind. They, however, were a bit dry needed help from the syrup. It also helped to have a big piece of chicken with it. Overall it was still a yummy dish.
We each got one more drink to end our brunch. AngryRussian got one of his favorite beers, Mariner Brewing’s Blueberry Sour while I got a Cold Brew Coffee + Baileys ($5).
I really loved brunch at Earl’s. The prices were great, free parking, you can make reservations (I really avoid brunch just because I don’t like or agree with the fact that a lot of the places don’t let you make reservations, just so they can have long line ups outside), and the food and service was great! You bet I’m gonna be back any chance I get!
