Restaurant Week - Banana Bean

On the last day of restaurant week Bob and I were reviewing our options of where we would like to wrap it all up. Maybe a new place we haven't been before. Then an impromptu brunch with friends led us right back to the Banana Bean! It's okay. We really, really like this place!

We did try to get things we have not had before. Because Banana Bean offered all their brunch items on the Restaurant Week menu, it gave us a lot of leeway.

Here were our appetizers-Both were absolutely wonderful! Along with these we had an order of the plantains, too.
Beach House Nachos - White Corn Tortilla Chips with Traditional toppings, Quesadilla Cheese, and your choice of Seasoned Beef or Grilled Shrimp

Fried Green Tomatoes (Seasonal) - Habañero Pepper Jelly, Goat Cheese

Our choice of entrees were also great! Only comment I can make is that the chicken and waffles could benefit from additional syrup.

Sweet Corn & Lobster Bisque - Sweet Corn and Butter Poached Lobster in a Sweet Cream and Sherry Velouté

Eggs Del Mar - Two Poached Eggs Atop House-made Creole Cornmeal-Dusted Crab Cakes,Seared Spinach & Roasted Tomato Hollandaise

BB Omelette - Roasted Vegetables, Goat Cheese, and Load'sa Herbs

Grandaddies Chicken And Waffles - Buttermilk Fried Boneless Chicken Breast with an Almond Scented Belgian Waffle and Apricot Honey Syrup

Enchilada Omelette - Seasoned Ground Beef with Fajita Vegetables, Quesadilla Cheese, Sour Cream, and Red Hacienda Sauce

Another successful meal at The Banana Bean Cafe. And friends that are now fans of the Bean!!!

  1. Yum! Look at that lobster bisque. And those chicken and waffles! Now I'm truly sold. You had recommended it to me, but the pics have done it.

    Hoping you are on a warm beach in Hawaii right now...
