Lucky me (poor nonexistent six-pack) got blueberry pancake platters TWICE this past weekend. I had intended to making breakfast one day, but that didn’t quite pan out due to laziness and inconvenience.
Saturday morning, we tried going to The Hill Cafe (in Church Hill) for breakfast, after hearing some good reviews from friends. Alas, its only open for Sunday brunch A close alternative was the downtown location of River City Diner, right next to the 17th Street Farmer’s Market in Shockoe Bottom. Yes, you may remember me mentioning this place before, as I ate at the Northside location right after my half marathon last year. Truth: ANYTHING would’ve tasted like heaven after running 13.1 miles…but, by the time we arrived there on Saturday, we were close to eating our clothes. So once again, my judgments are most likely skewed.
Also, I should note that this diner was voted “Best Day-After-Drinking Brunch” by the readers of Style Weekly in 2011. Now, we didn’t drink at all on Friday night, but there were quite obviously people there that did. Hey, no disruption; no judgement.
Valerie: …what did you think of River City’s biscuits?
Boyfriend: uh they were fine as I remember
Valerie: lol just fine? no complaints
They had it, but Boyfriend thought they were stingy with the sausage. Rude, especially since I paid for it. Totally worth a docked point.
