Waking up to a buttery pile of sweetness is everything my sweet tooth could ever want. Days later, and I am still thinking about this cinnamon bun. For starters, it is grilled with butter and slathered with smooth icing. The fresh berries on top make this the recipe for a heavenly start to a Sunday.

When you book brunch at This Little Pig, prepare to feast. Full-on pigging out is totally acceptable and encouraged here. If you are hungover, your body will thank you a million times over. Trust me.

The cinnamon bun set the bar very high from the get-go, and the rest of brunch followed suit. Before brunching here, I was only semi-obsessed with this place and now I am completely infatuated.

We ordered:

  • Butter-Grilled Cinnamon Bun– Housemade giant cinnamon spiral, grilled with butter, royal icing, fresh berries, whipped cream
  • Chicken-Fried Chicken– Crispy chicken, fresh-baked biscuits, sausage gravy, eggs any style
  • Steak and Eggs– 8 oz. sirloin steak, eggs any style, avocado, tomato, chow chow relish,
    home-fried potatoes
  • Crab and Shrimp Cakes Benedict– Shrimp and crab meat, sweet peppers, whole grain mustard, breaded and pan-fried with poached eggs, Old Bay hollandaise, home fries
  • Eggs Anyway You Like- with home-fried potatoes, bacon or sausage, toast

Selecting an entree is hella hard. Every single entree sounded incredible. We tried 50% of them, and 5 out of 5 were off the charts. So, I’d say your chances for an unforgettable brunching experience are looking up.

My personal fave was the chicken-fried chicken. This was my first time indulging in fried chicken before dinnertime, and it surely won’t be my last. This flavor combo was next level. The chicken was super crispy, the biscuits were flaky and fluffy, and the sausage gravy was sent from heaven.

The steak and eggs comes in at a very close runnerup. I am not at all shocked to discover This Little Pig’s steak is perfect. But, the toppings make this dish. I want chow chow relish and avocado for breakfast from now on.

Seafood is not my jam, but my brunch buddy tells me this benedict is bomb. Rich, but not too rich, saucy in all the right ways, and fluffed as boujee eggs benny should be. 

If you prefer the classics, go eggs any style… but step a little outside of your comfort zone by adding a side. The options are plentiful, so I’ll make it easy for you. Order the rosemary and curry roasted cauliflower. The smoked mozzarella, fresh rosemary, and breadcrumbs create a combination you’ll be thankful for.

Nobody’s perfect. My critique? Less OJ, more bubbles. Brunch is busy, so I totes get it. But a little more champagne in the morning, makes for a much better Sunday Funday. But hey, these mimosas are bottomless and only $12, so you can always order more.

This brunch was the ultimate breakfast feast, and I will 100% be back for seconds. Any takers? First cinnamon roll is on me.
