It took a while, but Langermann’s has finally come around to offering a normal brunch (as in later than 12) – well sort of – they still play jazz. But, in the summer it doesn’t much matter, because you can sit outside, get away from the music and still have the wonderful food. The brunch menu has also been expanded – as in more than 12 things. I think they actually have 6 types of Benedict’s.
I have been switching up my orders – sometimes the crab cake benny and the sometimes the friend green tomato benny. I always, always get the grits though. In fact one morning, I think I only had the grits. They use an heirloom grit from Georgia. I didn’t know I like grits until I tried these. Langermann’s gets them directly from the mill right after they have been stone ground. If you have ever been on the fence about trying grits – go here, try these. I like them just as they are, but you can get all sorts of toppings from cheese to brown sugar.
I like Langermann’s – they aren’t my most favorite place for brunch. Their coffee is a little bitter for me. Plus, I think they tend to serve a fairly bland plate. Nevertheless, I have a good friend. It is her absolutely most favorite spot for brunch. She loves this place – she always, always orders the Yucatan benny – your normal eggs Benedict with a somewhat spicy sausage patty. As in, that’s the only thing she has ever ordered in the last 3 years. It’s kind of funny, because she can be swayed to go our for brunch the moment I mention Langermann’s.
For those who prefer sunday brunch – they also have that – buffet style. Same menu, but all the bacon, sausage, grits and potatoes you can eat. Tons of biscuits and house made jelly. Plus, I think they ditch the loud jazz music. I feel a little bad, the jazz is good, its just not always what I want on a Saturday or Sunday morning, especially if I had some extra fun on Friday…
