When You’re Hungry – Go Out to EAT!

EAT! Food & Drink is a new restaurant in Broomfield, CO.  EAT! Food & Drink is “Broomfield’s newest brunchery.”  It has only been on the scene for about 10 months.   In that short time they have already made quite a name for themselves, and are already getting quite a good following; and they only are just getting started.

I had never heard of EAT! Food & Drink until just a few days ago, when General Manager, Brittany Bartlett and Owner, David Frieder reached out to me to come in for brunch.

The lady who runs the restaurant, Brittany Bartlett, and her head server, Ken.  They took such good care of us.  You can tell by the big smile on Brittany’s face that she really loves what she does.

The man with the vision of creating EAT! Food & Drink, David Frieder.  He said he wanted to open a “brunchery’ because he is an early bird himself and he wanted to have a great place to eat with great, fresh food for all the other early birds out there too.

Thank you Brittany and David for inviting Larry and I to join you.  We were so impressed by all the fabulous food, the great service and the beautiful and inviting ambiance.  The house was packed and the joint was jumpin’.

Everything at EAT! Food & Drink is made from scratch and in house as much as possible, and it is super fresh and super delicious!  Things that are not made in house, are grown and produced from local vendors as much as possible too, which is a win/win for the whole community.

The menu is full of so many fabulous and unique dishes, featuring many classic brunch items as well many new ideas and/or classics with a new and delicious twist.  For instance, you can have Just Good French Toast, made with brioche toast and served traditionally with pure Vermont maple syrup or, you can have Very French Toast, which is a thick brioche toast served with a creamy creme brulee custard sauce, seasonal mixed berries and a home-made caramel syrup.  Both sound fabulous, but personally,  I would go for the Very French Toast.  Don’t even think about counting calories on this one, just go for the gusto and enjoy!  Or if you prefer something more like eggs Benedict, you could have the regular eggs Benedict, or some that are piled high with braised short ribs on a rosemary ciabatta or eggs Benedict with an Argentine flair, made from Argentine chorizo that is then smothered in the home-made green chili.  This was my choice.  OMG!!!!!  It was so good!  EAT! Food & Drink is famous for its green chili.  I confess, I DID NOT eat everything on my plate.  I gave a lot to Larry and I left some of the bread and hash browns.  I was saving room, even if only just a little, for something else.

Larry chose the Nice to Meet You Scramble, that was loaded with bacon, sausage, chorizo, and cheddar-jack cheese and the house green chili.  Most definitely a meat lover’s delight.

The menu options are all so enticing and they range from sweet to savory, with traditional breakfast type foods, to things more along the lunch line.  And if you want a libation or two to go with your brunch, there are plenty of creative choices of those available as well.

Not that you will have much room left for dessert after finishing brunch, because the portions are HUGE, but there are some very delectable dessert options that are also there to tempt you.  We were SOOOOOOO full after our fabulous brunch, but how could we resist the churro donuts with the creme brulee custard sauce?  We just had to try those too.  We split one and brought the other one home with us.  OMG!!!!!   It was warm and fresh, with a light coating of just the right amount of sugar and cinnamon, and it just melted in our mouths.

We had a fantastic day at EAT! Food & Drink, meeting Brittany, David and Ken, and of course filling up on some food that was absolutely scrumptious!  We are already planning on another trip to EAT! Food & Drink with friends in the very near future.

EAT! Food & Drink is open every day from 6:00 AM -3:00 PM.  They serve breakfast, brunch, lunch and cocktails.  Eat! Food & Drink is located at 520 Zang Street, Unit N, Broomfield, CO 80021.  I would call for reservations, just to make sure you don’t get left out, at (303) 728-9990 or you can contact them at http://www.EATatEAT.COM.  Bring your appetite and bring your friends.  This culinary experience is best when shared with others.
