Brunch at Fig + Farro

My friend Jillian invited me out to brunch today, and we settled on Fig + Farro to try out some options on their new all vegan menu. They switched from vegetarian to fully vegan on November 3rd, and we’ve been anxious to check it out, especially as neither of us had been there in awhile.

We started with the infamous Giant Blueberry Cinnamon Roll which was more than enough for both of us. It was light and sweet with just the right amount of blueberry flavor. I would get this again, but I think I might need a couple more friends on board to help out.

I opted for the Bennie which includes an English muffin, spinach, smoked mushrooms, Frank’s Red Hot Hollandaise, and breakfast potatoes. I added house made sausage for an extra $4. It was great, but I don’t think the amount I received was worth $4 so I wouldn’t add it again.

Also, this dish would have been light years better if it weren’t for the flavor of the mushrooms. They tasted like I was eating a campfire which completely overpowered all of the other flavors. 

Jillian ordered the Breakfast Sammie which is an English muffin with tomato tahini, chickpea eggies, sausage, and arugula with a side of breakfast potatoes. She cut it up with her knife and fork because it was too precarious to try and pick up and take a bite out of, but she enjoyed it overall.

We both loved the breakfast potatoes which were soft inside and had a nice, crisp outside. I wish I had stuck with my original instinct which was to get the Chilaquiles, so I’ll have to go back for those at some point. The general manager stopped by to check in and recommended the Favorite Flannel Hash. It’s made with fingerling potatoes, beets, sausage, eggies, and gravy or salsa. 

Fig + Farro offers a nice variety of both sweet and savory brunch items, and there seems to be something for everyone. I look forward to stopping by for dinner later this week. If you’ve tried their new menu already, what’s been your favorite so far? Feel free to share in the comments!

    Great review, Laura! I don’t know that a I would give Fig + Fargo another try without others (you) reviewing the new menu first. You have yet to lead vegans astray when it comes to food adventures. Fig + Farro’s previous menu was a little rough, but your experience gives me hope!

      That means a lot to me — thank you, Georgia! I’m going back in a couple days for dinner, so that will be the real test. I’ll make sure to report back. I’m hopeful that they genuinely are turning things around, and I know we would all love to see them succeed. 🙂

    I completely agree with your assessment of the Bennie! I loved all of the components except for the mushrooms. They were good, but there was way too much smoke flavor. It really overpowered the dish.

    The blueberry cinnamon roll french toast, however, was spot on. Probably one of the best breakfast dishes I’ve ever had. I was also really, really impressed with their biscuits and gravy (no added sausage, didn’t need it!) the last time I visited. If you’re a fan of biscuits and gravy, I highly recommend trying it next time you’re brunching. 🙂

      I’m glad I’m not the only one! I know people who like that flavor but blech. The French toast sounds awesome, so I’ll put it on my list. And I was very tempted to try the biscuits and gravy, so I know what I’m getting next time. Thanks for reading and commenting and talking about food. 🙂 🙂
