Wienstein and Gavinos

Wienstein & Gavinos – A Crescent street legend tries out Brunch

The 411

wienstein-and-gavino-exterior-small1I find often that many places flirt with the idea of adding brunch to the menu. As you know, I am a huge fan of this since I like the fact that the more places that are offering brunch the more choice we get. It is better for everyone with a morning hankering. Now, my friend let me know that Wienstein & Gavino’s had begun offering a brunch of sorts – well – it’s actually a Frittata menu. Normally I am not a huge omelette fan but, I did want to check this and see how Wienstein and Gavino’s would pull of brunch.

McCarthys (VT)

Luck of the Irish

The 411

On a trip to Stowe we went looking for a place other than our hotel to have some brunch and thanks to some super sleuthing (not on my part) we came across McCarthy’s.

At 1st glance

At first sight one would think nothing special of it, just another greasy spoon, although when you sit down and take that first bite you will be pleasantly surprised.

Food

The menu is of decent size and portions of it are also offered for the lunch sitting. You will find some good options here and the quality of the food is fresh and healthy. I had a French toast made of nut/oat bread ($6.99); it came with a side of sausage, 2 eggs and maple syrup on the side. There was also a poached egg and toast ($3.99) with the option of nut/oat bread toast. The special bread they make there was quite tasty and well worth a try, I strongly suggest it. The raspberry peach fruit drink ($3.50) was really really thirst quenching; it was thick, but I have had thicker, and I don’t recall if it passed the straw test, but it’s worth trying. The fruit bowl was ok and costs about $3.00, although it consisted of pretty standard fruit, none of which stood out. One thing to note was that coffee is not included with any of the plates so you have to pay once, but the refills are free. (more…)
