Ladies Who Brunch

What does one do on a Tuesday when the weekend feels so close, yet so far away? Today I find myself daydreaming about Friday and brunch. And with that comes the launch of a new series on 'Ladies Who Brunch.'

Something you will quickly learn about me is that I love food, I think that's a given judging by my blog. But when it comes to meals, brunch takes the (pan) cake! Just about every weekend me and my girlfriends get together and catch up over a plate full of bacon, eggs and a carafe of mimosas. Nothing like champagne in my OJ. Can you say bottomless mimosas?!

This weekend we decided to head over to Folk Art, this quaint spot, nestled in Inman Park. From the moment you walk in, you can feel the vintage flare with the exposed brick walls covered in vintage decor. The aroma of french toast makes you eager to see what the menu has to offer. But if you're anything like me, you've already checked out the menu online. I take my food very seriously!

When it comes to their brunch menu, it is a bit overwhelming (in a good way)! From an egg white omelet to peanut butter and b-a-n-a-n-a (cue Gwen Stefani) french toast, you cannot go wrong with anything you order. But when contemplating my order, I'm always torn between savory vs. sweet. I know, I know...the struggle is real. Once the drink order is put in, one Apple Bitters Mimosa, I get back to the task at hand. I eye some of the surrounding plates, and decide to go with their Egg-white omelet. Loaded with jalapenos, turkey sausage, mushrooms, spinach and cheddar cheese. And while savory might have won this time, make no mistake my sweet tooth was filled. See the benefit of going to brunch with friends is getting to try a "bite" of what they get. Let's just say Folk Art's sweet potato pancakes are out of this world! Seriously need that recipe.

In between bites, my crazy, talented sister snapped shots of brunch! Cheers to good food, great company and one of my new, favorite brunch spots.
