Cheese Themed Brunch at Sona CreameryA combined cheese shop and restaurant, Sona Creamery has creative ways to introduce its core product to the table. We were given a warm welcome with freshly baked peanut butter and chocolate chip scones. Although the scones were warm and delicious we quickly discovered it is all about the cheese. We officially began our brunch with an abundant cheese board with a mélange of different flavors from pecorino to local cheddar. I enjoyed how we were educated on each piece of cheese from its origins to stories about the cheese makers. The small slivers of cheese were deliciously accompanied by homemade jams, mustards, and pickles.
Then, we moved onto the main courses which were shared family style. The opener was a French toast soaked in custard overnight and accompanied with bacon jam. I was impressed how it was not soggy and the jam went very well with it. This was followed by Sona’s take on eggs benedict: substituted the hollandaise sauce for raclette. I will always be a fan of the hollandaise but this was a delicious alternative. We were also served frittata which received positive reviews as well. Overall, the brunch was creative and absolutely delicious.
