On a sunny Saturday in August, John and I visited the Hamilton Inn for brunch. We had done brunch there once, but somehow forgot about this place even though we had enjoyed it. Unfortunately, we got there later than expected and all the outdoor tables were taken. It was still nice sitting inside as the decor is lovely and the space is bright.
The Hamilton Inn offers a different special every day of the week. On weekends, they offer brunch cocktails starting at $4. I was starving by the time we got here, and a bloody mary ($4) managed to tide me over until our food arrived. I later switched to a grapefruit bellini ($5), which was nice, but the grapefruit juice seemed to be very light and watered down.
John had a craving for sweets, so he went with the Brioche French Toast ($14) and a scoop of ice cream on the side ($3). The french toast was served with nutella, vermont butter, maple syrup, and strawberries. I’ve never been a french toast person, but it looked good.
My entree features the best of both worlds: avocado toast with poached eggs ($12). Toasted english muffin, avocado with jalapeno and lime, beautifully poached eggs, pickled onions, and a side salad. The perfect poach and the yolks were delish with the avocado. The side salad was refreshing, and I also got a side of home fries ($5) as I remember enjoying the fries here. They’re sliced thin and have a nice crisp exterior without being too dry.
