Walking down Valencia, we’ve passed Spork tons of time, but it always was closed. I guess it was just the timing as they’re only open for dinner during the week and also for brunch on the weekends.
It’s a pretty cute place on the inside. We didn’t have to wait, which was well appreciated. The brunch menu is pretty tiny, and not cheap. We both wished there were more options on the menu.
J got the skillet french toast which was a toasted french bread pudding served with fresh fruit, maple syrup, walnuts, whipped honey butter. This thing was like cake for breakfast. He liked it, but found that there was not nearly enough fruit or walnuts. He had a couple of perfect bites, but really neede some more of the fixins to make it great.
I got the mission eggs which was slow roasted carnitas, broken eggs, avocado, corn tortillas, spicy green cabbage, queso fresco, and a heaping helping of cilantro. It was a lovely layered dish. It was another dish where I liked every single one of the components, and they all worked so well together.
I about died at how adorable these little cookies were that they gave us with the check. I mean seriously, look at these teeny little burgers that were cookies! Service was just fine. They’re pretty vigilant about filling up your water glass. It was a nice brunch, but for us, the selection was a bit too limited and it’s on the pricey side. But the not waiting part was nice.
