there is no meal that I love more than brunch. I mean, can you blame me? it's the perfect opportunity to pair fluffy buttermilk pancakes with bacon and a bottomless mug of coffee, as well as either champagne or vodka in your brunch-approved alcoholic beverage of your choice (and the one you choose depends on your own personal level of hangover, I presume). so, imagine my excitement when, this weekend, I had not one but two opportunities to stuff my face with my weekend food of choice. that's right; on Saturday I got up and met one of my BFFs-for-life who was in town for the weekend at the Arcadia Diner over on Rt. 2 in South Burlington for all the pancakes, bacon, orange juice, and one egg-over-easy that my heart could desire. and, this morning, I found myself at Leunig's bistro here in Burlington in a slightly more upscale setting, where I feasted on a $6 Bloody Mary and Eggs Arcadia (a crab cake-y take on Eggs Benedict). clearly, I'm living the dream.
