Gooood Morning !!!!!
It’s Saturday Morning and wonder of wonders… we don’t have any big plans..
No Showers to get ready for …. No shopping to to do.. Nothing big or even small as a matter of fact
to attend to…
So Mr R and I slept in.. we didn’t get out of bed till almost 7:30 !!! Whoo Hoo ! ( Yes that’s sleeping in for us )
I must say it was loverly.
So after the hubs snow plowed the drive ( yes Michigan finally got some snow) we both sat down with some coffee and perused the internetz… Something I think I could do all day !!
Suddenly Mr R started reading the tantalizing description of some amazing sounding food.
Red Velvet Pancakes….Banana Nutella Crepes….Fried Chicken and Waffles????
He asked if I wanted to head downtown for a bite to eat at the The Hudson Café.
After wiping the drool from my mouth… I enthusiastically said YES !!!
So I slapped on a little lipstick…
Took off the Yoga Pants
( Ha… as IF they’ve ever seen a day of Yoga) Sprinted into my jeans and we were off.
20 some minutes later we were there….
I was surprise to find it was a rather modern trendy kind of place…
I don’t know I guess I thought I would find a bunch of older locals…huddled around turquoise Formica tables slurping coffee from chipped diner mugs…. On On the contrary, the place was packed with mostly younger collage age hipsters with a smattering of young families feeding the little ones ….many were probably there for the Winter Blast going on.
So…. instead of the dank dark dreary hole in the wall I’d summoned in my mind.. the place was down right bright and cheery.
From the moment we walked in…the beautiful hostess greeted us wearing the most gorgeous smile and the most vibrant orange top and matching scarf..
( OH how I wish I would have asked to take her picture)
That girl was sharp !
The wait staff was fast friendly and efficient…
We were pleased indeed…
The hard part for us was going to be trying to figure out how in the world we were going to make our choice from such a great menu.
Yeah… Not an easy task…fun… but not easy.
When probed….the hostess proclaimed the Challah Bread French Toast her favorite…although the Red Velvet Pancakes were a close second.
Our Server suggested the Corned Beef Hash or the Chunky Monkey Pancakes.
We both glanced around us trying to figure out what in the world we would choose..
Finally after much deliberating… we committed…
Fried Chicken and Waffle for Mr R… and the Voodoo Eggs Benedict for me..
Courtney our server made a good argument for the Voodoo.. she said you can get standard Eggs Benedict anywhere.. How often do you find one made with a house made Corncake base, Chorizo, and ranchero sauce….Point taken.
At least I had something nice to look at while I waited.
Before we could say…Huevos Rancheros..our food was there..
(Oh I didn’t mention that not only was the Maple Syrup delish… it was warm ! )
My Voodoo… was SCARY good !!
The eggs were done to perfection.( Nothing worse than a runny underdone egg….ewwwww)
Great Atmosphere.. Great food… and Good Service..
Courtney was even nice enough to indulge my request for a picture of their shirts…
“Griddle me This..” How flippin cute.
Yes.. I would say The Hudson Café was a great big 2 Thumbs Up.
Hope everyone has a great…. relaxing weekend !!!
