Yummy Bites Going the Extra Mile for Breakfast
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and, in our opinion, the tastiest. As we are connoisseurs of all morning meals, we had to try several local breakfast restaurants and one of the best is Seven Mile Cafe. They’re open from 7:30am till 2pm during the week and until 2:30pm on weekends. There are other locations, but for this trip we focused on the one in Highland Village.
We stopped by for brunch and ordered several fan favorites. For a fresh start to our day we tried the Green Smoothie which has kale, spinach, banana, strawberry, agave and soy milk. Don’t let the mention of kale scare you off, it pairs well with the spinach and strawberries, plus the banana gives it a very smooth texture. If you can’t sit down for a full meal, the smoothie is a great way to keep you satisfied until lunch. However, as we were very eager to try more, we didn’t stop with the smoothie.
To begin our morning culinary adventure, we ordered The Seven Mile Latte and the Benny Sampler. They have 6 different styles of eggs benedict which include the Original Benny, Bruschetta Benny, the California Benny, the Veggie Benny, the Chipotle Tofu Benny and the Crap Cake Benny. Seeing as we couldn’t make up our minds, the sampler allowed us to try any two. So we went with the Bruchetta Benny that had mozzarella, tomato, basil and a balsamic glaze that was heavenly when paired with the rich hollandaise sauce.
The other was their California Benny which came with bacon, avocados and grilled tomatoes. The bacon wasn’t your standard thin bacon. It was thick cut and satisfied our meat craving. We substituted the hash browns to try the legendary smoked gouda grits. To describe them as delicious would be an understatement. The creaminess of the smoked gouda cheese gave the simple grits a gourmet status.
Once that was completely devoured we decided to continue the egg theme and ordered the Huevos Ranchero. It comes with a crispy corn tortilla topped with black beans, pulled pork, ranchero sauce, cheese and 2 eggs over easy. The egg yolk really complimented the flavor of the sauce over the pulled pork.
We decided to finish off our culinary experience with something sweet and discovered the S’moreo pancake. Yes you just read that right, a S’moreo pancake. Your traditional pancake gets an upgrade with these decadent toppings: marshmallow cream, chocolate, oreo cookies, whipped cream and graham cracker crumbs.
Overall, it was an amazing breakfast that satisfied every craving we had. Whether you’re looking for a healthy start to your day or looking for a savory breakfast, Seven Mile Cafe has it all. Though we encourage you not to try it all at once since we’re quite stuffed.
