Little Collins on a Snowy Morning

February 23, 2014

AM and I braved the snowy weather Saturday morning and made it to a morning spin class.  As a treat to ourselves, we stopped by Little Collins, a newcomer to Midtown East coffee scene, for a leisurely brunch.

A flat white for me and English breakfast for AM…

Everything on the little cafe’s menu looked absolutely delicious and since we were ravenous, we decided to share two savory dishes and one sweet.

The Pick Me Up from the Brekkie menu is filling.  A sage omelet sandwich served with balsamic tomato and sauteed onions, this is one breakfast sandwich packed with flavor.

The shakshuka from the brunch menu caught my eye.  Little Collins’ version was served up as a sauce on top of two poached eggs with a side of arugula salad and slices of whole wheat bread.  Even though they mentioned that it was spicy, the heat was very tame so don’t be afraid to order up this hearty brunch dish.

And lastly, we ended the meal on a sweet note with an open face peanut butter and jam sandwich.  Sometimes, there is nothing better than a well made good old fashion PB&J.  To top off the sandwich, they added a sprinkle of toasted coconut flakes for a little bit of crunch and hint of coconut flavor.

We lingered a bit longer after devouring our delicious bites and enjoyed the scenery inside the adorable new addition to midtown east as well as the snowy outdoors.  Finally, one more flat white to-go before we ventured outside into the cold.
