Quick Bites: The Red Hen Cafe

I love breakfast/brunch yet I really don't go out to eat it that often.  That will likely change this year as there are so many new (well, new to me) breakfast & brunch spots out there that I really want to try.  A couple of weekends ago I was feeling a bit "brunchy" (is "brunchy" a word? well, it is now!) so I decided to check out one of those new (to me) spots.  An internet search led me to, a nifty little site that features breakfast recipes and reviews of breakfast/brunch restaurants nationwide.  A search of Duluth/Alpharetta restaurants eventually led me to The Red Hen Cafe in Alpharetta.

My first impression of this cozy little breakfast/lunch spot was quite positive.  The place has a very friendly, laid back vibe.  As for the food, I have no complaints there.  I decided to try The Red Hen's crustless artichoke and cheddar quiche and a ½ order of "citrus scented" French Toast.

In spite of what appears to be a small portion size, the artichoke/cheddar quiche was quite tasty and satisfying.   The challah French toast with cinammon butter and maple syrup was delicious as well.  Overall, I was pleased with my first visit to The Red Hen-it's a nice option for breakfast/lunch on the northside.  I'll likely make a return visit to sample some of their other offerings.

  2. I love breakfast. It is definitely my favorite meal, but since i manage a restaurant I don't often get "brunchy" on weekends. I hope 2010 brings you lots of delicious brunches, I can't wait to read about them =)
