Our bachelorette clan was in a state of recovery after a night of good clean block-party fun. As we slowly woke up and became humans again, it was time to research brunch options. We had experimented with the diner closest to our hotel the night before with no luck. I remember the cream of broccoli soup being edible, but the inside of my eyelids were way more interesting. This special morning I knew that a small town café would be the way forward. This would supply good cheap grub and give us a local-yocal meal. Who wants eggs and bacon made en-mass when you can have Hudson Valley’s best with pumpkin lattes in-hand?
When I googled the café they mention that they are a “kid friendly restaurant”. This made me chuckle. I understand if you want your audience to know you are animal friendly, but a kid friendly café ? This isn’t already assumed? Perhaps they should work on the delivery noting their “kid’s corner” or “reading room”? There’s no missing it as it dominates three quarters of the dining area (complete with La-Z-Boy reclina-rocker). #vintagepiece #reclina #whoneedsrrrrssss #IfeelsoBK
The inside of Wobble reminds me a lot of our hometown diner called Victoria’s Cozy Corner (formerly known as Johnny’s) with its old-school vibes. For anyone that has read PeanutPimpMama’s review on Victoria’s you would know that it was way more cozy when it was still Johnny’s. Sadly that is no longer the case and that corner has seen its heyday.
On this particular bright and early morning I was hardly feeling fresh as a daisy or decisive. I became that annoying customer questioning; “What do I absolutely need to try to have the ultimate experience here?” We were instantly sold on some home made cider donuts. They didn’t exactly cause bloodshed, but there were multiple forks on the plate at once.
The selection of egg dishes and pancakes was most appealing on the menu. They even have a crepe section for the exotic types, oui oui! Eggs…WE NEEDED EGGS. There were omelettes all around that morning. I decided to be adventurous and go for one of the daily specials. This dish is made with two scrambled eggs over polenta and dressed in their red pepper emulsion with grated parmesan and served with a side of home fries…yeah.
Of course there was a fluffy short stack served alongside my huevos. I couldn’t bear to turn down flapjacks when I saw the interesting accompaniments they provide. (Pictured Above: Pancakes with cream of wheat, pecans and chocolate chips dusted in powdered sugar.) While it’s kind of a pet peeve of mine to not have all of the ingredients inside my pancakes, they were delightful. All of those nuts on top make for awkward bites when they could be easily minced up inside.
We certainly had one beautiful spread that morning which helped to motivate the ride home. Not certain any of us would have lasted otherwise…Saved by The Wobble!
The place may have minimal curbside appeal, but all that warmth and coziness awaits you within. (PPM Tip: Request the window seat) Even if the pumpkin latte is really just coffee with pumpkin syrup, you need a reason to go to Ossining. It’s a great name isn’t it?
