Breakfast at Herons

This past Saturday, I decided to treat myself to breakfast at Herons, the restaurant at the fabulous Umstead Hotel in Cary, NC.  I’d been there for lunch before, but I’ve been admiring the breakfast menu since I first heard about the place.

The best part about my breakfast was the service.  Doormen opened the front door for me when I arrived and left.  I was greeted by a nice woman at the door who showed me to the restaurant and gave me some info about the hotel.  Then my server was terrific.

I originally ordered the waffle ($10) based on my server’s recommendation.  I also got fresh squeezed orange juice ($4) and a complimentary shot of strawberry banana smoothie.  Unfortunately the waffle maker was broken, so I decided to get the French toast ($9) instead.  The server was so sweet apologizing for the delay and bringing me a bowl of berries.  They even comped my meal because of the screw up.  So nice!  Anyway, the French toast was delicious.  I’d absolutely go back.

The lady who walked me to Herons said they would really like it if the community would come visit more often.  They have a nice little set up with FREE coffee, muffins, and pastries, and she said they end up throwing out the muffins and pastries most mornings because no one eats them.  That’s pretty neat, right?  I snagged a little cinnamon roll for later, and it was very good.  If you are ever in the area around breakfast time, stop by!
