Great brunch at Marigold Kitchen

I just came back from brunch at Marigold Kitchen, and it was really wonderful. First of all, I haven't been there since they repainted, and the dining room is a warm shade of yellow that looks just beautiful in the daytime. The whole experience felt refined and very civilized - a great brunch.

We had coddled eggs that were smokey, nicely set yolks, with a really nice hammy taste. It came with a little round of corn bread and salad greens. My companion had french toast which might be the best french toast I've had in recent memory (or ever, maybe) - really light, creamy and browned on the outside, light and rich and airy whipped cream with a little bit of maple syrup, and apples. Beautifully plated, a good size for brunch.

We had a side of fabulous Surrey sausage - very crispy casing. We had the cinnamon bun as well - a little pillow of cinnamon, sweet but not cloying, not too bready. My only complaint was that the coffee was a little bitter - I had to add sugar, which I don't normally do.

Overall, we loved it - as I said, very refined. The service was pleasant and efficient, and it feels great to have such carefully prepared brunch food in such a beautiful setting with nice flatware, good glasses, cloth napkins, etc. This is only the second week and it wasn't overly busy, but I can imagine that once word gets out, it will be.
