My mom and I have a yearly tradition around the holidays of spending one whole day shopping and eating. We always end up just buying presents for each other so it’s actually a pretty unsuccessful holiday shopping trip, but it is always tons of fun.
This year we went to Lake Geneva and we started the day off at Simple Cafe
. My mom had been before and she was excited to take me. They have a menu full of jazzed up breakfast foods like Savory Korean Pancakes and Mashed Potato Omelet. I really enjoyed it and looked forward to going back whenever we made the trip out to Lake Geneva again.
Well I didn’t have to wait for a trip, Simple Cafe
came to me! I got brunch with my friend, Julie, this past Saturday and decided we should try out the new restaurant that opened up within walking distance from my apartment. I somehow didn’t realize that this Simple Cafe was related to the one in Lake Geneva until I looked up the menu the night before.
I was crazy excited (I may have screeched a little) and they did not disappoint!
I ordered green tea and it came in a cute little pot.
Julie ordered the butternut squash and tofu hash with rye bread. She just came back from 1 1/2 years in Denmark and was upset that her bread was American rye.
I don’t know what that means, but she made me laugh!
I ordered the Apple Crumble French Toast with Cider Infused Maple Syrup. Good gravy, I can’t remember the last time I had french toast that good.
Long story short, I am incredibly excited that Simple Cafe has moved into my neighborhood. I highly encourage everyone to eat there. You can say hi to me – I plan on spending as much time as possible eating their food!
