The Lobby

A group of us met at The Lobby downtown on Sunday.  We'd never been - it was delightful!  I was a fan as soon as we rounded the courtyard side to enter the restaurant.

We arrived at about 10:30, and they had no problem seating 5 of us outside on the patio.  Walking through the restaurant to get to the patio revealed a lovely bar and what we heard referred to as "the tower of power" (a monster mimosa).
The best part about the menu was the "Starters" section.  On a breakfast menu.  These are my people. We (naturally) ordered some breakfast appetizers for the table.
We got the Tater Greens (amazing!) and the Glazed Doughnut French Toast (eh...not worth it) as starters.  Plus they brought us a complimentary House-made Doughnut Hole (brilliant!) dish for the group.  We topped off our starters with drinks, and really, there was no need to order breakfast.

Mimosas, Yellow Hammer, and the house Bloody Mary (thumbs up for all!)

The service was a bit slow, and the food took awhile to arrive.  Since we were chatting and catching up with friends, we weren't in a hurry, and it wasn't really a problem.  Our waitress did a nice job of keeping our glasses full and entertaining us while we waited. We ordered a few breakfast burritos, a bacon risotto, and a couple of Alaskan omelettes.

We'd had a lot of food, and we all managed to leave with leftovers.  Despite the slow service, I'd definitely go back to this place, especially on a sunny Sunday morning for brunch.  They have free parking, and are able to accommodate larger groups without reservations.
