Brandy’s Restaurant & Bakery

Worth a detour

An entire menu card is devoted to espresso variations at Brandy’s. Someday I will try Baja Mocha made with Mexican chocolate or Café Aloha with cream of coconut or maybe even red velvet mocha; but I was delighted to have ordered regular Café Mocha, an expertly concocted triple-whammy of opiate (cream), aphrodisiac (chocolate), and amphetamine (caffeine).

From basic eggs (with cider-cured bacon) to pan-fried trout and French toast made with sourdough or whole grain bread, the breakfast menu is expansive. “Best of Flagstaff” awards all over the wall testify to its goodness. I love this kitchen’s Swedish oat pancakes, which are surprisingly light, so soft and tender that they are reminiscent of healthful spoonbread. They come with hot cinnamon apple topping and can be filled with apples, bananas, blueberries, or chocolate chips; but it’s the pancakes themselves that make this a memorable plate of food.

From the bakery come good bagels, outlandishly sticky sticky buns, big brownies and blondies, muffins, scones, coffee cake, and broad fruit Danishes. The lunch menu includes salads, hamburgers, and Reubens on house-baked rye.

Brandy’s is a bustling strip-mall café that makes its walls a venue for exhibits of local artists’ work. It used to be a three-meal-a-day place, but now serves only breakfast and lunch.
