Food find: Bread and Chocolate

It's Saturday, which means I was back at Eastern Market again this morning. After my last visit, I was excited to go back. I found some delicious produce and baked goods for $11 -- pumpkin raisin muffins, yellow tomato, several kinds of apple, corn and black bean dip.





We also tried the champagne brunch at Bread and Chocolate, a Washington brunch favorite. I went there the last time I was at Eastern Market but wasn't hungry enough for the brunch. This time, however, I came prepared. We all got champagne and a beautiful melon cocktails with two types of melon balls soaked in honey and water, then topped with mint sprigs. We got our choice of eggs Benedict with smoked salmon, salmon topped bagels, pancakes, chocolate and banana french toast or a vast assortment of omelette's. I went with the cream cheese and avocado omelet, which was creamy, filling and delicious. By far the best looking dish at our table was the smoked salmon-topped bagel with capers, cream cheese, tomato and onion.

The food was delicious and for as busy as it was, the lined moved pretty quick. I would have liked my check more expediently, but oh well, they were busy.

Here's another slideshow of today's market finds and some of the stuff at Bread and Chocolate.
