Had brunch at Spring Mill Cafe today and was reminded of how much I love the place.
It has a wonderful atmosphere in a historic building. It's romantic and quaint.
Our servers were attentive and very friendly.
The food was excellent. I got a b'stilla. It was a generous wedge of chicken, phyllo, spices, topped with dates, dried apricots, oil cured olives, and filbert nuts. It was served over couscous, with a very spicy harissa on the side. The seasoning- cinnamon, nutmeg, and something else, was light, but brought new depth to the dish. It had a yogurt sauce on it too, which added nothing, but didn't dedract either. All of that was $14.00, and believe me, the portion was generous.
My partner got a french toast that was superb and unique. It was more of a pastry dough, stuffed with fruit (apricots, berries) with creme anglaise, more fruit on the top and a poached egg. It was very moist, but since it used a pastry dough rather than bread, it didn't get mushy. At $12.00, it was also a generous portion and surprisingly delicious.
The place was a bargain and we thoroughly enjoyed our experience. We go there periodically, and each time we've wondered why we don't go more often.
