Colts Neck, NJ
Enjoyable Brunch in Lovely Historic Establishment
In case you guys haven’t picked up on this already, one of my favorite things to do is try new places with the Husband. Our most recent adventure this past Sunday, included a tasty brunch at the historic Colts Neck Inn Steak & Chop House.
Unfortunately, at this time, there is an extreme amount of construction around the property, but once inside, you immediately felt taken back in time. A large bar stood front and center in the bar dining area and just beyond, in another room, were more tables with the buffet set up off to the side.
The buffet featured small cheese & crudités platters, fresh fruit, Greek tomato, bowtie pasta & caesar salads, bagels & mini croissants, and smoked salmon with cream cheese. Hot chafing dishes included bacon and sausage links, scrambled eggs, cinnamon french toast and pancakes, then (and these were delicious) raspberry cheese blintzes and the crunchiest potatoes either of us have ever had, followed by chicken francaise and penne vodka and finally eggs benedict. An omelet station with your basic toppings and a table with all the mini pastries (cookies, muffins & other goodies) topped it off. Assorted juices, and coffee or tea are included in the low price of $17.95 – any other drinks are available at regular price. On that note, our mimosas were extremely necessary and very good!
Joanne, the bartender, was very social and friendly and our servers, Ashley and Bridget, very efficient. Overall, we enjoyed ourselves and the food was tasty, however, there was one thing that concerned me. The hot dishes are placed so close to each other that you could possibly burn yourself is not cautious. Plenty of options for everyone.
