How is it I haven’t made it to Cheever’s Cafe until now?

I’ve heard so many great things about it.  So finally, a few Sundays ago, Mr. Wonderful and I ventured out to check it out after church.

And we’ll be back now, probably every week.

If you’ve been frightened off by Cheever’s high dollar prices….this is the time to go to check them out.  Their Sunday brunch is very reasonably priced. You can opt for basic breakfast starting at $6, to higher end items going up to $13.

You can be casual in this place.  We saw people dressed to the hilt, but also those in tank tops and jeans.  We checked out some crazy tattoos and blue and pink colored hair and smiled at the older folk in their freshly pressed Sunday outfits, ties and pantyhose.  You can show up at Cheever’s and be comfortable, no matter what your style.

But count on the fact that the food will be top rate and classy.  You can be assured of that.

While you look at the menu, they will bring you a stainless steel bowl lined with a napkin and full of the most delectable herbed rolls I’ve had in awhile.

Nice and crusty on the outside, you break these babies open to a soft, hot and moist interior that just melts in your mouth.  These are fabulous.  There were actually 5 or 6 of these, but by the time I got my camera out, Mr. Wonderful, Jason and Lindsay had snatched these up and were raving about how good they were.

The first time I went, I ordered this – the Masa Vallo Con Huevos ($12).

And guess what I ordered today, on my second visit?  The Masa Vallo Con Huevos.  Because frankly, I can’t imagine anything better than this.  The base of this that you can’t see are two masa cakes, or corn- type pancakes that have a kick to them, (reminds me of my Poblano Spoonbread) as if they have poblanos or jalepenos mixed into the batter before they’re grilled up.  On top of those is spooned a generous (I couldn’t finish mine) helping of their delicious shrimp risotto.  On top of that, are nestled two perfectly poached eggs and spooned over all is a delicious ancho cream (an ancho is a dried poblano).  An accompanying side of salsa verde and pico de gallo sits on the side.  Perfection for brunch.  Brilliant!

Mr. Wonderful and Jason ordered the Cowgirl Benedict ($13).  It struck me as funny that two guys ordered a meal that started with the words “Cowgirl” until the plate came out.

This was no girly plate by any means.  This is a hand breaded top sirloin steak that is breaded, fried and topped with a fried egg and smothered in red chile hollandaise sauce and  and capped off with some generous slices of avocado.  It comes with some crispy skillet potatoes underneath it that you can’t see in this picture.

The guys were happy and smiling with pleasure.

Lindsay ordered the Bacon, Egg and Cheese Sandwich, only she doesn’t eat bacon so they brought it on the side (Mr. Wonderful snarfed it).

This was a large toasted sourdough bread sandwich, filled with scrambled eggs, and then layered with cheddar cheese, tomato and and avocado mayonnaise spread.    Lindsay chose the crispy potatoes as well to go along with it.  The bacon she didn’t eat would have been applewood smoked and I took a bite.  Yum.

It was smaller inside Cheever’s than I expected, so if at this point, you’re drooling and want to go eat there, I’d recommend that you make reservations.

Today the kids and I went back and I wanted to show you a few more things we had.  Today I had the Shrimp and Grits.

This dish was five sautéed jumbo shrimp served over green chile-chihuahua grits with sourdough toast.  Scrumptious.

Conner ordered the massive Chicken Fried Steak.

Are you ready for this? With Jalepeno Cream Gravy. SO good.

Tori ordered the French Toast which had croissants at its base instead of bread.

It was served with an amazing cinnamon whipped cream and apricot-pecan syrup.

This has become our favorite Sunday spot to visit for brunch.  It has me wanting more of Cheever’s cuisine.

I am just speculating,  if they can do brunch so well, what would dinner be like?

    This is my absolute favorite restaurant. I love the Chicken Fried Steak w/jalapeno cream gravy. It's huge. I usually split it and it's till more than I can eat. They also have an awesome wedge salad and for lunch, the roasted chicken enchiladas are great. I just discovered that they now have a gluten free menu. Since I'm not gluten free, I'm excited to go and see what is offered on this menu. I can't imagine it not being good. Everything I have ever eaten there has been amazing.

    I go there a LOT maybe too much LOL! You have to try their Chicken & Waffles the best thing ever & only $10! You get a corn-meal waffle and a beautiful fried chicken breast cooked to perfection, the two are so wonderful together with or without the syrup. The chicken reminds me of my grannys chicken she use to fry in a old black cast iron skillet!
