Looking for a new brunch joint? Hello Darling opened it's doors the beginning of this year, the interior is quite quaint, friendly and welcoming. I love the simple decor here with the mismatched cups and plates and fresh flowers on each table.
Everyone got either coffee or tea, I opted to get the Rhubarb & Ginger Soda. It was not too sweet and really refreshing, not as much rhubarb flavour as I wanted though.
The menu changes daily with their menu hand written on their black board.
Everything is is made in house and they source their protein from Rowe Farms which is awesome knowing where the products are actually from.
My sister and my boyfriend both got the Huevos Rancheros served with fried eggs, mixed peppers, rice & beans, pico de gallo, avocado, purple slaw and Mexican cheese. This isn't your stereotypical huevos rancheros, super light and healthy version.
Chris got the Apple Cake French Toast, served with rum raisins, maple syrup and whipped cream (opted out).
My mom got the Eggs Any Style which is served with hash brown, toast, light salad and fruit. No complaints but also nothing very fancy.
I got the Roasted Vegetables with poached eggs, butternut squash, parsnips, sweet potato, fennel, pita za'atar, white bean hummus & kale chips. I really loved my dish, it was healthy, light but also very substantial. All the different textures made up for the lack of meat.
I would highly recommend checking out Hello Darling if you're looking for a vegetarian and vegan friendly meal but also very satisfying for meat eaters alike.
The wait time for food is a little longer than usual but the food and service make up for that.
