Brunching with Bloggers at Lorb Hobo

On Sunday, several local bloggers and I met at Lord Hobo for brunch as part of what is hoped to be a monthly event. I have been to Lord Hobo various times for drinks and/or dinner, and I am mildly obsessed with the lively, young scene, friendly waiters, insanely long and various beer list, and the quality food - which is basically upscale pub grub. I had never been to Lord Hobo for brunch, though, and was excited to try their morning offerings.

Some of the prices seem a little steep, but the amount of food you get for those prices makes them completely reasonable. For instance, I opted for the Grafton Cheddar Omelette ($11), which came with home fries, fresh fruit, toast (I went for wheat) and a side (I got the bagel and cream cheese for me and Z to share).

That's a whole lot of fresh, quality food for $11. The eggs were perfectly fluffy, with a decadent, gooey, cheesy center. Even the home fries were well cooked and seasoned with what tasted like cayenne pepper - wonderfully spicy and well seasoned.

I washed my brunch down with a bloody mary (about $7), which was garnished with a pickled celery stick. While the garnish was basically a sour stick of celery, the bloody mary did hold a great spicy-to-sweet ratio.

We all know how much I love brunch, but, after Sunday, Lord Hobo has definitely been added to my top favorite places to enjoy one of my favorite meals. It was also great to see some familiar faces, like Michelle's, Alicia's, Katie's, Justin's and Melissa's, as well as meet some other local bloggers I admire, like Megan and Renee, who was also kind of enough to organize such a great event!

Have you ever been to Lord Hobo? What's your review?
