Walking inside Rowhouse Bakery & Restaurant I found myself both impressed and intrigued. The interior is unlike any other space I’ve seen in the city of Buffalo. Each area has its own identity. There’s a bright modern cafe, rustic chef’s counter, cozy but classy cocktail lounge, upstairs balcony seating in a home library-esque space, and a stunning yet homey dining room. Every room is almost like walking into a different HGTV episode, in a good way.
Rowhouse Bakery & Restaurant opened for business in October 2017, and more recently started serving brunch. The brunch menu is short and sweet, but I think it absolutely works. There’s a mix of savory and sweet choices, and it’s easy to opt for both (just like us)!
- Orchard Fresh Mimosas: Moletto prosecco, Rowhouse cold pressed spiced cider
- Fresh Baked Breakfast Biscuit: Farm egg, house bacon, creamed spinach with side of potatoes
- Farm Egg and House Made Sausage Pizza: Sharp cheddar, fresh ricotta, roasted tomato, caramelized onions
- Mini Pastry Sampler: Peanut butter blossom cookies, chocolate croissants, beignets
Fresh cold pressed juice and champagne just might be my new favorite morning beverage. Rich spiced cider + bubbles is a combo that is just meant to be.
Rowhouse is all about the local ingredients, and you can totally taste the farm fresh difference. The brunch pizza was light, but very flavorful. The crust had a distinct rustic aftertaste and the egg in the middle was just the right amount of runny for dipping.
I have a major sweet tooth, so naturally seeing rows on rows of pastries was pretty exciting. If you are indecisive when it comes to choosing your pastries, this sampler plate is oh so perfect for you. My personal fave? Hands down the peanut butter blossoms. The homemade goodness factor is 100% there, and reminds me of days spent baking at grandma’s.
Service can make or break a brunching experience in my opinion. The restaurant was certainly busy on Sunday, but our server was attentive and friendly and even treated us to our first round of mimosas. Thanks for the A+ service!
While we have heard mixed reviews on this new hot spot while they’re getting their footing, we 100% believe it’s worth a trip to check it out. There’s truly nothing like it in terms of atmosphere, making it a must-experience restaurant.
Before I left, I grabbed a cold-pressed apple cider to go, and it’s safe to say I’m already hooked.
Rowhouse is serving brunch every Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and I’m personally super excited about this new addition to the Buffalo food scene! My goal? To be seated in every section. One down, many more to go!
