Mayfield Bakery Report

Finally had a chance to try Mayfield Bakery with my toddler and two other toddlers at the table. So, I can vouch for the kid friendly aspect.

I ordered the hamburger off the kid's menu. Received a cute slider-sized burger on a delicious egg bun. Meat was substantial and moist with a slice of white cheddar and a decent pile of fries. My son ate all my eggs, and I ate his burger, so I can vouch that this was a tasty burger. The pickles on the side were nice too, almost bread and butter flavor.

I had the camino breakfast: scrambled eggs, bacon, toast, potatoes. The eggs were moist and buttery, the potatoes nicely flavored and formed into small stack of fish-stick shaped logs with crisp exterior. Toast was unbuttered and no jam was offered, but could probably be supplied if requested. The bacon consisted of two generous and thick slices - nice and chewy/salty.

The other children had a cheese pizza with a bubbly woodfire crust. Again chewy vs. crispy.

Hubby had the hash, which was interesting -- corned beef chunks with barley - sort of risotto style. Portion was not huge and toast is not included, so he ordered an apple fritter on the side - very good fritter only slightly sweetened.

Other orders: the bavette steak with chile verde sauce; the meat was perfectly cooked and flavorful. The chicken salad sandwich - tasty but the weakest dish.

I would like to try the adult size burger and maybe one of the sweet breakfast dishes on my next trip.

Not cheap for breakfast, and most orders do not include potato or toast, so I would not go there expecting a pile of hash browns/toast to fill you up. Service was very attentive and friendly despite our crew of little ones.
