Brunch at the Carriage House


I don’t usually eat out two meals in a row, but since the lovely fella is leaving we decided to make the most of his time here in Ithaca.  It was 26 degrees out (eek!!) so I suited up before walking to breakfast!

I look kind of like a marshmallow but seriously, this jacket kept me ridiculously warm! Despite the fact that it was pretty cold, it was a lovely walk.  Then we arrived at the Carriage House.  They’re known for having a really good brunch, so I was pretty excited to go.  I love brunch! I prefer breakfast foods to any other meal!

The decor was lovely and the ambiance was very cozy.

And they had Bon Appetit magazine at each table!!  Great reading material for when you’re waiting for your meal!

I ordered the scrambled eggs (cage free!) with ciabatta toast and a side of garlic home fries (served with house-made tomato-ginger ketchup).  The tomato-ginger ketchup was interesting.  A little too sweet for my liking but a great flavor combination, almost reminded me of a chutney.

Overall, this place was pretty good.  Their coffee was tasty, food was pretty good and the decor was great!

What’s your favorite restaurant??

    I love that coat! I’ve actually been looking for one just like it– mind if I ask where you got it?

    That restaurant looks like an awesome pick for a cold day…super cozy!

    What great food photos! I’m a Carriage House fan, too, though I hardly ever find it that empty when I go… at least not on a weekend for brunch. 🙂
