Taste Test: Brunch Apothecary

Open since March 2016, the Brunch Apothecary is the brainchild of husband-and-wife Rico and Katie Cunnington, owners of Rico’s World Kitchen in Buford. The Cunningtons have a knack for repurposing historic spaces, and their latest venture is no exception. Nestled in a charming Folk Victorian country house dating back to 1905, Brunch Apothecary exudes cozy Southern charm from the moment you step through the door. It feels like stepping into your grandparents’ home, complete with warm hospitality from the staff, who feel more like family than employees.

Now, onto the main event! The food, duh! Brunch Apothecary boasts an impressive menu featuring a wide array of brunch classics, from savory to sweet. Whether you’re in the mood for Cajun Shrimp & Grits or the famous Chicken & Waffles, there’s something to satisfy every craving. Rumor has it that they churn out over 200 biscuits on a typical Saturday brunch – a testament to their dedication to quality and freshness.

During my recent visit, I found myself torn between all the options, but in the end, I opted for the Steak & Eggs, while my dining companion went for the Farmhouse Breakfast. Let me tell you, we were not disappointed! The flavors were exquisite, and the portions were generous – we left feeling satisfied and planning our next visit. Admittedly, I dug in before I even got to snap a picture. I should know better that the “phone eats first,” but y’all, I just couldn’t wait!

While we couldn’t possibly sample the entire menu in one sitting, that just means there’s plenty more deliciousness to discover on future visits. I’ve already got my eye on the Southern Smothered Biscuit for round two! So, dear readers, if you’re looking for a brunch experience that’s equally delicious and delightful, look no further than Brunch Apothecary. Trust me, your taste buds will thank you!
