The classic breakfast sandwich was crisp and crunchy, thin and small. A thick slice of bacon interrupted the salty cheese and the cooked-through egg. It was all things that breakfast sandwiches need, but was not fat enough to be filling. The seasoned hash browns were tasty and warm on the side of the plate, a nice addition to the slender sandwich.
French toast is a brunch necessary, and this challah french toast was utterly scrumptious, topped with soaked berries and dusted with a little powdered sugar. The bread was just soft enough, custardy, not too eggy, with moments of vanilla. But the berries, the black and blue berries were like drenched gems, brandied beauties, icing on the delightful cake. The little fruits made syrup almost superfluous, but still a sweet addition, bringing on a little saccharine note.
Doughnuts to-go were necessary. The Boston cream doughnut, slathered with stiff dark chocolate and filled with wet pale yellow cream, did not even make it home. It was a luxury that Dunkin Donuts could never afford; real and alive. The recommended applesauce doughnut was cakey and pretty, dense like any dessert should be.
The sundrenched room made for a lovely little brunch; clatters and chatters and Saturday banter. A friendly staff, delicious doughnuts and super strong coffee make Sam A.M. Café more than just a sweet spot.
