Abbey Inn Steps Up Brunch Game
Abbey Inn is bringing their A Game to the Denton brunch scene with their new menu rollout. Featuring authentic Irish options in addition to clever takes on some brunch faves, and an updated cocktail list that's sure to cure that pesky hangover or give you the perfect morning buzz to get your weekend started.
The Red Stella is made with Stella Artois and Major Peter’s Bloody Mary mix, and unlike your typical red beer or Bloody Mary, the Stella keeps the drink light and crisp and doesn't fill you up to where you can't enjoy your meal. The spices are the perfect hangover cure, and this cocktail pairs perfectly with any item on the brunch menu.
I fell in love with the Orange Blossom after just one sip. This cocktail combines Hendrick’s gin, triple sec, and orange and pineapple juices. A boozy brunch beverage, the citrus flavor of the juices and triple sec compliment the floral notes of the gin, creating a refreshing and bright cocktail that would complement one of the more savory options on the new menu.
The Keoke Coffee is a decadent mix of Kahula, Creme De Cacao, Gran Marnier, topped with Whip Cream and chocolate syrup. If you are a lover of chocolate, this drink is your new favorite. It's decadent and rich in all the best ways. The orange notes from the Marnier add a brightness to the drink, with the citrus cutting right through the sweetness of the drink,
The Full English Breakfast is just that, a full English breakfast, well minus the blood pudding. Served as 2 eggs, banger sausage, English bacon, gilled mushrooms, grilled tomato, baked beans, orange marmalade and toast. It's everything you could want in a brunch place, hearty servings of protein, the grilled tomatoes are perfectly seasoned and the thoughtful orange marmalade is the perfect sweetness to cut through the savory flavors. Make sure to get those eggs over easy, so you can soak everything up in runny yolk goodness.
The Chicken and Waffle with Bacon Pepper Gravy is the perfect pairing for a boozy breakfast. A fluffy Belgian waffle, served with buttermilk chicken tenders, Vermont maple syrup, then topped with thick rich bacon pepper gravy. I was wishing for bigger size pieces of chicken, they seemed so small compared to the huge waffle, but they were still crispy and delicious. You may not expect syrup and gravy to be a match made in heaven, but oh man, it is surprisingly amazing and all the flavors of the plate come together just right.
The Walnut Crusted French Toast is served as thick hand breaded slices of toast, served with a side of Jameson Maple Syrup and Cinnamon butter. The crispy walnuts add a delightful texture to the soft and airy bread, and the earthiness of the nuts compliments the sweetness of the other the syrup and the spice of the cinnamon.
The Abbey Inns brunch menu is totally stacked, and also includes Steak & Eggs Benedict, a Crustless Ham & Smoked Gouda Quiche, and a Corned Beef Hash in addition to even more brunch cocktails.
Your new weekend spot is located on the Square at 101 W Hickory St, and brunch is served from 11am to 3pm. Give them a follow on Facebook to keep up with specials and live music.
