Most are familiar with Madhatter’s wild late night ways, but it also offers a cure all for the that familiar morning-after pain. It provides much needed staples for nursing a hangover; not too bright, great bottomless deals, make your own bloody mary bar, and simple familiar food.
The mimosas, while a great deal at $10 for bottomless is made in such large batches the strength and quality are questionable. The smart strategy here is to opt out of the bottomless deal and have some fun making your own bloody mary for five bucks. I was intimidated at first, questioning my ability to make a delicious mary but quickly got over it in favor for being able to garnish it as heavily as I wanted.
With Caryn being grumpy from her own hangover and not feeling eggs I opted for her usual Eggs Benedict, Chesapeake style with lumps of crab on top which came with a side of potatoes that were nothing to write home about.
Omeletes are a safe bet, featuring a range of ingredients and whipped up right in front of you. Peek at the line before you head up. I wouldn’t recommend this if you are late bruncher because they do stop refilling the station a bit before brunch ends.
Waffles made at the same station by the same chef can be filled and topped with whatever your wish.
The vast number of televisions and simplicity of the menu makes this one of my boy’s favorite brunches. He comes for the endless carafes of mimosas, and is delightfully pleased by the omelet station. However, I begrudgingly go, knowing that I will be nursing a major brunch-over from the cheap champagne and most likely be hungry again within a few hours. Madhatter is a safe bet and good for brunch with the boys. The steak and egg sandwich and chesapeake egg bennies are definitely your best bet.
