Prep & Pastry Restaurant Review

: Serve American diner standards, toss in a hefty dose of local ingredients and add a modern view and you have Prep & Pastry. Yes, traditional french toast is on offer, but then there’s the s’mores version made with graham cracker brioche, Nutella and marshmallow fluff that’s made in-house. You’ll find hash that’s kicked up a notch. Opt for the sweet potato hash with an herbed mousse or follow our lead and order the duck confit hash, lush with sweet and savory flavors. At lunch it’s a toss-up between the Dip, a modern take on the classic French dip, and Missy’s meatloaf wrapped in bacon and finished off with tomato raisin ketchup and aïoli. Scones come in chef-inspired flavors and the cookies are so good you’ll want to take some home. Weekend brunch has the best of the breakfast and lunch menus but expect a wait --- P&P brings in the crowds.
