Breakfast at Eat @ Adrian’s

23 Aug

Two weekends ago Joe and I spent a long weekend at the Cape again. We spent that Saturday in P-Town (Provincetown for those who don’t know) with a group of friends, but Sunday was a day of spending time together and relaxing.

When I heard that the guys over at EAT Boston were taking over Adrian’s restaurant in Truro, I knew that I wanted to visit. We decided to have breakfast there on Sunday morning.

The breakfast menu was very simple, and the focus was on local, quality ingredients. The menu was small but contained a lot of interesting menu options.

We were able to sit on the back porch on this particularly balmy Sunday, and the view was not too shabby. Adrian’s is pretty much on the Truro/Provincetown line so if you walk out toward the edge of the property you can see all of P-Town in its glory.

The coffee brewed at Adrian’s is specially blended for the restaurant from locally roasted Beanstock coffee. It was strong and very flavorful. I may have had a little too much coffee.

As an appetizer so to speak, we decided to share a generously portioned slice of sour cream coffee cake. Served warm, it was moist and slightly tangy, and the ribbon of nuts and cinnamon melted in your mouth. The perfect start to breakfast.

Joe went with the cranberry pancakes served with real maple syrup and orange butter. As you can see, they did not skimp at all with the cranberries, which provided a nice tartness that went well with the citrus of the butter. Doused in maple syrup, it’s hard to mess something like this up.

For my meal, I went with the Swiss Eggs, which were two eggs poached on top of an English Muffin with a Romano cream sauce that was kicked up with a little cayenne pepper. Basically eggs benedict without the hollandaise and meat. It was also 1000x better than traditional eggs benedict. The eggs were perfectly poached, and the cream sauce complimented the eggs perfectly. Even though I love eggs benedict (poached eggs more like it) I’m usually not a huge fan of hollandaise. If the same goes for you, then I would highly recommend getting an order of Swiss eggs.

It’s ok though, I still got my meat portion in. Obviously when I see linguica on the menu, I cannot turn it down. This linguica was perfectly grilled, and was mild but still flavorful. They know what they are doing.

Sadly, the folks at EAT are only at Adrian’s for the remainder of the summer, so if you want to sample the delectable breakfast, lunch or dinner menu, you need to do it soon! Hopefully it is such a success that they will come back next summer ::fingers crossed:: If you find yourself in Truro in the next couple of weeks, make sure you check out Adrian’s!

    Nice looking breakfast! I was hoping to get there last week but only managed as far as mid cape. That coffee cake looks fabulous

    Breakfast looks nice! Especially those pancakes. Does Will do breakfast too, or is it the regular breakfast menu?

      I believe they do the whole menu, breakfast, lunch and dinner.

    I LOVE P-Town but have only been once and all I can really remember is that the ice cream was AMAZING. Apparently the food at Adrian’s is pretty darn good also. Looks like one fabulous meal!

      P-Town is one of my favorite places on the Cape. The outer Cape as a whole is the best!

    What a great review! Just a slight note. As an outer cape resident, I feel compelled to let you know that not only will this breakfast remain after Will has left, but it’s been under your nose for 27 years! Adrian’s, the restaurant hosting Will’s fantastic outer cape endeavor, has been a Truro fixture for almost as long as I’ve been alive.

    I have to commend you on your order, I always start with the coffee cake and go straight to the cranberry pancakes. Looks like you had some of my favorite homefries in the world too. So great that you love the outer cape and a good Adrian’s breakfast.

    Will is doing his stuff with a really interesting dinner menu this year. If you didn’t make it to his dinner hopefully you get to try it before they depart for the summer.

    I’m curious to see if Will returns next year or if Adrian’s incredible pizza and regional Italian will make a come back at dinner. Either way, Truro residents and passers-by alike aren’t short of one-of-a-kind options.

    If you’re interested I’d be happy to recommend some other of my outer cape favorites. Seems we have comparable taste.

      Thanks! I’m hoping we can get back to Truro before Will leave’s, but I’m not sure we will get the chance. I’m hoping that he will return next year but I’m sure we will go back regardless!
