We don’t shop at the Portland Whole Foods as often as we’d like, but when we do visit the all too tempting store, it feels like an event—a nice break in our Groundhog Day like shopping routine.
So you can imagine how thrilled we were when the Whole Foods Café brought back its Sunday Jazz Brunch. Not long ago, we carried CP #1 and CP #2’s craft supplies to the café, found ourselves a generously-sized table, listened to live music and sipped coffee. Heaven.
The café is open and brightly lit, making the Maine winter feel a bit sunnier. And the menu, while standard fare, is affordable. The four of us had brunch for less than $30. Dad Potato stretched our Whole Dollar by purchasing a few items in-store and delivering them to our table. The meal included fruit, yogurt, bacon, scrambled eggs, toast, an egg sandwich, coffee, soymilk and hot cocoa for the kiddos. Hey, we like to eat.
By the time brunch was over, CP #1 and #2 were ready to cut a rug. A few other potatoes joined our duo, and even with all the foot traffic at the café, no one seemed to mind the impromptu dance party.
At the Whole Foods Sunday Brunch, kids can be kids and parents can feel like adults. A visit is well worth the price.
