This Mt. Vernon favorite, serving brunch on Saturdays and Sundays and breakfast daily, always reminds us of a hip artist’s loft, and we were happy to be seated upstairs to watch the hubbub below. We started out with a potent orange crush (made with house-infused orange vodka) and a refreshing mint-and-lime lemonade. We really like that the restaurant serves complimentary gooey cinnamon buns before the meal arrives. Our animated waiter, Seth, recommended the croque madame, so we obliged. The dish is a version of its monsieur counterpart——a grilled-ham-and-cheese sandwich——with an over-easy egg and a cheddar Mornay sauce on top. Decadent is an understatement. But we didn’t feel too guilty since it came with a generous portion of fresh fruit. Must-have dish: The fried chicken and biscuits includes two poached eggs, all topped with Sriracha hot sauce and that silky Mornay sauce."
