Alamo Brunch

Has anyone tried the new brunch menu that Alamo is offering on the weekends before 2 pm? It looks good, and I'm curious.

      I know it's offered at Village and South Lamar, and probably Downtown. They all seem to share menu changes while Lake Creek exists in this separate Alamo universe.

    2. Husband had the breakfast sandwich (HUGE!) at the Mommy Dearest brunch and loved it.

        Yeah, never understood why Lakeline is so different from the rest. Sure wisht hey would add to the menu.

          Pretty sure Lake Creek is a franchise. They do have some cool events, though. Beer lovers should check out the Allagash tasting this coming Monday (2/2/09) and the Dogfish Head film festival in April.

            Different owners. If you get a gift certificate to the majority of Alamos, it won't be good at Lakeline, either. That explains the different (better!) beer selection at Lakeline, too.

        2. FINALLY made it to an early weekend show and ordered from the brunch menu at Alamo South.
          I was really impressed! I got the creme brulee French toast and fell in love. 4 half pieces with a definite custard flavor, powdered sugar, and some really good syrup. Came with a side of fresh fruit and I was able to get a side of so-so bacon with it as well.
          My friend got the bacon cheddar scones and WOW. Fresh, hot, I think there were 3 or 4 of them on the plate. Butter with onion (?) in it served on the side (it was dark, not sure if the onion was in the butter or the scone) and also served with fresh fruit on the side. VERY impressive. My friend and I kept switching bites between our plates and rolling our eyes to the heavens in delight.
          Can't wait to do it again.
