I love having my daughter come home for a weekend visit. Not only do we get to see her, but we use it as an excuse to go out to brunch on Sundays before she drives home. I’ve been seeing all the gorgeous food from Terra Mae on Instagram, so we wanted to give brunch at Terra Mae a try.
The first thing you notice about Terra Mae is the decor! It has an eclectic hipster vintage vibe. From the pink couch to the 40’s inspired wall paper, I loved it all. It is located in a building that also houses The Dwell Hotel and the Matilda Midnight bar. I don’t really have a reason to stay at The Dwell Hotel, but I wish I did, I bet I would love the room decor. But I do have plenty of reasons to visit Matilda Midnight and that is next on our list.
The first thing we did was order a bloody mary for my husband, a mimosa for me, and the donut appetizers for everyone. First of all, I think every restaurant should have donut appetizers. I would be all for that. These were wonderful house made potato donuts. Light and fluffy. The maple bacon was the favorite, no surprises there!
My daughter ordered the Belgian Waffles. Even though they looked like dessert, they weren’t over the top like at some places. They came with blueberry jam, pecan compound butter, Amaretto whipped cream, and thick cut bacon. They were delicious and she really liked them served with the maple syrup and the blueberry jam.
My husband is more fond of classic breakfasts and they had him covered with the smoked sausage. It was served with sunny side up eggs, polenta, pear relish, bacon and lentils. It all worked together beautifully and his eggs were cooked perfectly.
I ordered the BLT and Gouda Croque Madame. It was everything it promised to be, with rosemary bread, pimentone bechamel sauce and a sunny side up egg.
We loved every single thing. I’ve already been eyeing the dinner menu for what I want when we go back for dinner!

What a cool decor and yum-looking breakfast. And hey, I want your hubs’ bloody mary! Of course, it’s all better when enjoyed with a beloved child who’s home to visit. –G
