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.
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!
