Here at The Parlour HQ (aka our dining room table, for now) we’ve been talking about having a once-monthly Sunday ice cream brunch. I think we came up with the idea after seeing Molly Moon mention serving oatmeal topped with ice cream at one of their shops. Since we’re curious about whether this is something folks would actually be interested in, here’s a sample menu we’ve been fiddling around with:
Slow-cooked steel cut oats topped with a scoop of cinnamon ice cream and housemade preserves
Buttermilk pancakes topped with banana ice cream, pecans, and maple syrup
House granola+your choice of yogurt, non-dairy milk, or a scoop of frozen yogurt
Sourdough cinnamon rolls, seasonal scones and coffee cakes
And, of course, fresh juice, espresso drinks and hand-dripped coffees.
So what do y’all think? Would you come out for ice cream brunch? Our seating will be a bit more limited than most restaurants, so we’d probably make the hours longer than most brunch places. And in the summertime there will be plenty of room out in the plaza/in front of the shop. Let us know what you think in the comments (or if you’ve got any menu suggestions), and we’ll pick a random commenter to win a jar of our granola!
