Let me start this post by stating that we have dined at the Creekside Restaurant in Brecksville once before, and our lunch was very good. "R" still raves about the lobster quesadilla. But our Sunday brunch missed the mark. I ordered the Vegas Scrambler with three eggs scrambled, bacon, sausage, green peppers, onions, and spinach over potato skins topped with cheddar cheese sauce ($7.25). When my plate arrived, I quickly realized that "cheddar cheese sauce" meant nacho cheese- and the scrambler was swimming in it. Don't get me wrong- I love nacho cheese...on nachos, in a stadium. Not on my Easter Brunch eggs. I feel that there is no place for nacho cheese in any nice restaurant. It completely overwhelmed the flavor of the dish, and the wheat toast ended up being the highlight. It was really good bread! I will also mention that my side of fruit arrived with a hair in it. Yuck. "R" ordered the Breakfast Croissant with scrambled eggs, mushrooms, and spinach topped with brie cheese and served with fried apples ($7.75). I did get one tasty bite of a huge piece of brie, but I think overall "R" wasn't too thrilled with his dish either.
Ok, the good stuff...the restaurant's outside deck overlooks the little creek running through Brecksville. With the sun shining, birds chirping, and my yummy mimosa on hand- it was hard not to be enjoying ourselves. So even though the food was kind of a let down, we had a great Easter Sunday morning spent in the sun. Hope that you did as well!
