Brunch Fuel at The Mercantile

February 20, 2020

Have you ever spent days thinking about charger plates? You know, those decorative plates that sit underneath real plates? I’m sorry to admit that recently I have.

Wedding planning has been consuming me in all the wrong ways, but I’m here to tell you that I’m OKAY.

To save money, we’ve been eating at home A LOT and my breakfast most mornings consist of oatmeal… and oatmeal. Sometimes I’ll treat myself to a breakfast burrito, but 9/10 it’s rolled oats.

While I’m pretty good at sticking to a routine and not getting totally sick of having the same thing every day, when someone mentions brunch to me, I JUMP at the opportunity.

I’ve talked in the past about having some tried and true menu items that I know I’ll love every time I go back to a restaurant, and the No Huevos Rancheros at The Mercantile is another one of those for me.

Mercantile No Huevos Rancheros

This little beauty is a veggie scramble of butternut squash, black beans, spinach, quinoa, caramelized onions & soy chorizo. It’s topped with avocado mash, salsa & toast.

Yupp, it’s healthy.

Yupp, it’s satisfying.

And… YUPP, it also happens to be vegan.

Whole grains, beans, and vegetables all combined together is like my perfect dream team, and this dish delivers all three. It’s also a little spicy, which is also a win for me and my tastebuds.

Another great option is the Nicoise Salad (which I love to say out loud to feel fancy.)

This salad is loaded with the goods: olives, hard-boiled eggs, potatoes, green beans, tomatoes, quinoa and of course… perfectly cooked salmon.

I’m very into a brunch salad, especially when it’s fully loaded like this one. It gives you that feeling of a hearty meal while also letting you take on the day instead of needing to head home for a nap after eating.

Regardless of whether you like a light brunch or a comfort-heavy one (helloooo fried chicken sandwich!), The Mercantile offers a wide variety of menu items for all brunch-goers!
