Locus Restaurant & Lounge – Scrumptious Breakfast
Locus has been sitting on my wishlist for far too long. I don’t know what’s taken me so long to visit here since I adore breakfast so much and Locus is fairly centrally located on Main Street.
On my first visit, I stopped by for an early Saturday breakfast in mid-June. The lighting was a bit dim inside but most of the tables were already full.
I started out with a Hot Choclate with Whipped Cream ($4) and carried on with the Pulled Duck Hash ($14) from the brunch menu.
This was unlike any other “hash” that I’ve had before because it doesn’t come with potatoes. Instead, they have roasted squash, spinach, sweet pepper, green onion and cheddar topped with 2 poached eggs and served with cherry ketchup and an organic greens salad.
I asked for my eggs to be soft poached and they came out perfectly cooked with the yolks bursting open when I poked them. It seemed healthier than any hash that I’ve had before and it was quite yummy. But the best part of the meal was probably the basket of freshly baked bread. There were a few different varieties of bread and it came with two types of whipped butter.
I enjoyed my breakfast so much that I brought my sweetie back here for lunch the following weekend. Needless to say, this place gets quite busy but we managed to get a table after a short wait at the bar.
It felt like a soup day so I ordered the Cream of Leek and Potato Soup ($8) – the soup had a light texture and was super creamy but you could still discern the remnants of the puréed ingredients.
Again, the complimentary bread basket was great. I think I liked the raisin bread the best. And they even brought us out a second helping of bread after we polished off the first basket.
Here’s the Pulled Duck Hash again.
This time I tried the Scrambler Special ($14) with Double Smoked Bacon ($3.50). I got my potato fix with this dish.
While the servers are quite friendly, service can take a while if the place is packed. Best to just kick back, relax, and enjoy the yummy bread.
