brunch @ mildred's temple kitchen

I'm not sure how I found myself at Mildred's Temple Kitchen on a Sunday for brunch (a meal I usually skip due to my hatred for line-ups), but it happened. Surprisingly, the wait for a table was only about 10 minutes, but we did end up having to sit on the patio with the sun beating down on us (the umbrellas were blocking the rays from pretty much every table except ours.) Because we were starving we sucked it up and ordered a duo of currant scones to start. The apple preserves matched nicely with the flaky scones, but I really missed the clotted cream that I feel is necessary.
I decided on the blueberry pancakes and asked for a side of their homemade fennel sausage. I thought the sausage would be breakfast-sized, but it turned out to be a full sausage. It was juicy and spiked with lots of fennel—a great match with the sweet pancakes. And the pancakes! Fluffy and light, they were some of the best I've ever had. And the maple syrup, blueberries and whipped cream made them truly decadent.
Joe went for "The Manhandler," a twist on steak & eggs. It came with a sliced striploin (cooked medium rare) on arugula and toasted sourdough bread topped with two sunnyside up eggs, horseradish jus on the side. 
Despite how sweaty we were by the end of the meal, it was still a satisfying brunch. Liberty Village is definitely not my scene at all, but the food was good and I guess that's what matters.
