What’s Brewing at Brewton’s Restaurant
By Catherine Sherry
Nestled in the Garden Shopping Center on Route 33 lies a beautifully renovated restaurant in the heart of Neptune. It’s easy to simply pass by, whether you’re picking up a quick slice at their neighbor, Dominic’s Pizzeria & Trattoria, or refilling your prescription at the Garden Pharmacy.
With our refrigerator low on eggs and our palates tired of bagels, we decided to head over to Brewton’s Restaurant to try something new.
Upon entering, you’re immediately drawn to the friendly and cozy atmosphere. Whether it’s the perfectly decorated aura or the cheerful waitresses and chefs behind the counter, you feel right at home.
We were told we could choose any seat we’d like, so we sat at our table of choice and were immediately presented with menus. We perused for a bit and were pleasantly surprised to see interesting choices available, including “Chicken-N-Waffles”, “French Sunrise – Croissant French toast, strawberries, blueberries, and whipped cream”, and in homage to their previous name, “Carmela Cakes – 3 Pancakes stuffed with cream cheese, topped with strawberries, blueberries, bananas, whipped cream, and Nutella drizzle”. Can you say YUM?
It was a little early for a burst of sweetness, so we opted for the “Veggie Omelet – 3 egg omelet with onions, peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms, spinach, and American Cheese”, and the “Denver Omelet – bacon, ham, onions, peppers, and hot sauce”. Alongside other scrumptious choices, such as the “Southern Omelet – Chicken tenders, sausage gravy, and cheddar”, and the “Greek Omelet – Onions, peppers, spinach, olives, and feta”, the 3 Egg Omelet’s come with choice of potatoes or grits, and toast. I chose potatoes, being the potato-lover I am, and my husband went with grits for ‘blogability’. During our short wait, we were asked if we needed anything other than our coffees and teas (both warm and delightful), and watched as our chef made our breakfast from behind the bar area.
Our omelets came out upon completion and were delivered right to our hungry bellies. The Veggie Omelet was a great size, packed with diced vegetables, which I really appreciated. Although a bit light on cheese, it was just what I needed on a Saturday morning. The Denver Omelet was packed with just the right amount of meat. My side of potatoes suffered a bit from being a little on the dry side, but they did have a nice crunch to them, while the grits were about what you can expect. Our toast was warm and chewy, and jelly was available upon request.
All in all, we enjoyed our breakfast journey to the newly renovated Brewton’s Restaurant. Next time, we’re going to delve into the French Toast and Waffles and see how they fare against the Omelets.
