In Praise of Brother Juniper’s Home Fries

Posted by Holly Whitfield | December 11th 2012 4191 0

The point of this picture isn’t the pesto, tomato and mozzarella omelet. It was delicious, but I’d like to focus your attention on the home fries.

I’m pretty sure that with the right deployment, these home fries could make world peace a real possibility or, if given to Congress, prevent us from tumbling down the fiscal slope or at the very least, serve as a foolproof cure for the common hangover.

Despite being completely vegetarian (and I think vegan) friendly, they somehow manage to taste like bacon, maple and salt. They’re crunchy on the edges, but soft in all the right places.

About 80 percent of the dishes at Brother Juniper’s come with a side of home fries, but if your chosen breakfast doesn’t, you can always order them on the side ($1.50).

    I don't even like home fries, and I ate all of them. And they give you a MOUND of them. They are amazing.
