It’s been so long since LemNGingers got together. In commemoration of one year since our trip to Norway, we got together for breakfast on a quiet Monday morning!
Located in Eastown, Matchbox exudes a simple, elegant charm with its interior featuring wooden furniture and comfy booths. The booths were a little narrow but tall, making it feel like our own private corner.
I ordered the Baked Creme Brulee French Toast ($11) with bacon, which featured extra thick cut challah bread, candied pecans, house-made vanilla sauce, and caramel. It was AMAZING! I’m probably biased because creme brulee is my favorite dessert, but it had the soft texture of a bread pudding, creamy flavors of a creme brulee, and the crunch of candied pecans which made it a delectable experience.
I’ve heard great things about the burgers here, and I’ll definitely come back again for the other items on the menu. I probably should’ve gotten something to drink since it was Happy Hour.
