Simply put: The Black Walnut Café in Allen,Texas knows what breakfast is all about! The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner with an impressive array of dining options that you’d typically see in most places. However, my mission was to indulge in some early morning goodies before beginning quite a busy weekend.
Upon arrival I immediately noticed the bright and vibrant décor and ample parking along its perimeter. It was a beautiful day so I walked up to plenty of smiling faces of families having their first meal of the day out on their spacious patio. I was immediately greeted by the manager who was super sweet and gracious enough to seat me away from the long line of hungry people.
After taking my sweet time looking over the menu (because who wants to rush through a breakfast experience, right?), my eyes wandered in delight over one particular menu item….Lobster Benedict. Sold!
The Lobster Benedict featured two perfectly poached eggs covered in a cayenne citrus hollandaise sauce that had just the right amount of heat to it. The peppered bacon was amazing, nice and hot. The fried potatoes were nicely seasoned……but can we talk about the lobster?!?! So good! Well seasoned and super fresh…..not gonna lie, I looked to see if there was a dock with a captain in the back of the restaurant because it’s one of the best preparations of lobster I’ve had in a long time.
One of my favorite drinks during my trip here was the Frozen Peach Bellini. Aside from being a pretty drink upon arrival, it packed a really good natural peach flavor that would be enjoyable by anyone who likes the fruit.
My bartender informed me that they can make any drink of my choosing so I decided to keep my next drink request nice and simple and asked for a Vanilla Caramel Latte to test out their barista skills.
It passed with flying colors!
I laughed and joked with the barista about whether or not he had previously worked for a very popular coffee chain establishment-he assured me he did not with a mischievous grin. Not sure I’m totally convinced but nonetheless he’s quite the asset for The Black Walnut Café.
