Brunch at Whisk'D in Decatur, AL
I have never actually seen the movie "Breakfast at Tiffany's," although I once won a talent contest playing its Academy Award-winning song, "Moon River." That really has nothing to do with today's post, except for the fact that I remembered all that when Steve and I enjoyed brunch at Whisk'D a few days ago. That particular time was after attending a wonderful worship service in Decatur. It is interesting how many area restaurants close on Sundays. I suspect both a shortage of staff AND the bad reputation churchgoers have for their Sunday lunch behavior in restaurants -- a subject for another post.
Anyway, one of the things I appreciate about Whisk'D is its consistency. It is open seven days a week from 7:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., and it specializes in breakfast/lunch dishes, with a few sandwiches on the menu for those wanting an early lunch.
Presently, Whisk'D is located at 115 Johnston St. SE. in the building many people will remember as housing Curry's. From the parking lot, you can easily see both The Farmer's Market and the railroad tracks.
If you are strictly a traditional breakfast eater, you can order a la carte items of eggs, bacon, sausage, biscuits, and toast, etc., but why not try something special?
I ordered a Smothered Waffle which is described as 1/2 Belgian waffle topped by fried chicken and turkey gravy with a side of fresh fruit.
Steve ordered the Southwest Scramble. Two eggs, scrambled with cheddar cheese, pico de Gallo, and salsa verde, topped with black beans and served with sides of roasted potatoes and fresh fruit. His coffee was complimentary.
I have written about Whisk'D several times in the past. I included it in this story for FoodieFlashpacker.com when it was located on Grant Street. https://www.foodieflashpacker.com/decatur-alabama-restaurants/ and I did a review of Whisk'D for TheYums.com https://www.theyums.com/brunch-at-whiskd-cafe-in-decatur-alabama/ also when it was located on Grant Street. You'll see that I mentioned the art used in the decor which represents the city of Decatur so well.
The truth is that I like Whisk'D so much, I included it as one of the "100 Things To Do In Huntsville And North Alabama Before You Die," my book scheduled for release by Reedy Press on April 1, 2022.
Consider Whisk'D the next time you're wanting to meet a friend in the morning or happen to be in downtown Decatur after church on Sunday. But hurry, because they close at 1:00.
