I’ll say it here and now: This is the booth to beat this year.

After so many years of festivals, it’s now a bit mind blowing to think that, until now, there’s never been a brunch booth. But that problem, my friends, it solved. Enter: Sunshine Griddle.

  • Avocado Toast with Marinated Toybox Tomatoes and Fresh Goat Cheese on Toasted Ciabatta ($5.75)

Oh. My. Goodness. This is my new favorite thing. The avocado is perfectly ripe and tastes of lemon. The goat cheese has the perfect amount of bite. The tomatoes are ripe and sweet. And the ciabatta is cut thick and soft and chewy and perfectly toasted. It’s simple and fresh and the epitome of a perfect Flower & Garden dish. I’ll be braving the line for this often.

  • Shrimp and Grits: Blackened Shrimp and Cheddar Cheese Grits with Brown Gravy and Sweet Corn Salsa ($7.25)

These are SO good!! They have a bit of a kick – but not overwhelming spice. The shrimp are a good size, the grits are hearty and thick, and the corn is cut fresh off the cob. I loved this almost as much as the avocado toast.

  • Corned Beef Brisket Hash with House-made Potato Barrels, Onions, Peppers, Cheese Curds, and a Soft-poached Egg with Tabasco Hollandaise ($6.25)

If there was any one thing to skip at this booth, it’s this. It’s good enough but the flavors and textures just didn’t fall together the way I wanted them to. It’s rich on richer or richest. Fine enough but far, far behind the other two savory dishes. A shame since it sounds so good on paper – but the other two savory dishes more than make up for it. 

  • Fried Cinnamon Roll Bites with Cream Cheese Frosting and Candied Bacon ($4.25)

These are sinfully good. Crisp, light puffs covered in cinnamon and sugar and bits of candied bacon (just enough that it doesn’t overtake the flavor) and drizzled in frosting – and filled with this molten sauce that we swore tasted like apple even though apple isn’t listed in the description. These are a welcome indulgence.

  • Froot Loops Shake (non-alcoholic) ($4.50)

Welcome to my life, thing I didn’t know I needed. This literally looks, smells, and tastes exactly like what you’d imagine if someone told you to imagine a Fruit Loop milkshake. I’d forgotten how much I liked Fruit Loops as a kid until I tried this. If you’ve got kids in tow or just want to indulge your inner child, do not miss this.
