Mosaic Cuisine & Cafe Restaurant Review

: Waffles, waffles everywhere, even for lunch as the base for savory sandwiches. Weekend brunch is the ideal time to head to this Rockville eatery, because you can sensibly enjoy both a sweet and a savory waffle without qualms. Look for a breakfast egg-and-bacon savory waffle stuffed with scrambled eggs and maple-cured bacon, and a sweet waffle with strawberries and whipped cream. We delighted in the luncheon waffle, the corned beef sandwich with Swiss cheese and Russian dressing, a very sophisticated and delicate interpretation of the typical deli sandwich. The waffle-sandwich list goes on, but of course, it's not all about waffles. Lunchtimes also mean lusty soups and interesting salads, as well as tortes filled with cheese, mushrooms, caramelized onions or grilled salmon. Dinners step away from the waffle theme entirely with a half boneless chicken Basquaise, pan-seared rainbow trout, crusted pork medallion, or spring lamb wrapped in phyllo. French ideas, American interpretation, unusual fare.
