Under: Brunch,Chelsea

On Sunday, I headed over to Sarabeth’s in the Chelsea Markets. Sarabeth’s are located all over the city, but since we were looking for something quick, so we decided against trekking up to the UWS. They’re known for their preserved fruit spreads (not jam, mind you):

and the Sarabeth’s we went to in the Chelsea Markets is also a bakery:

The menu at Chelsea Markets is limited (their kitchen isn’t as large and most people just go for coffee), but they did have french toast, topped with bananas and raisins:

The french toast was actually not bad, although it’s probably not as good as the ones available at the Sarabeth restaurants. I didn’t really care for the raisins, but the bananas and fruit spread were a good combo. The fruit spread was extra sweet and I think orange with apricots.

I ordered the pumpkin waffles with a sour cream topping:

These are supposed to be really special from Sarabeth’s, but I couldn’t have been more disappointed. ๐Ÿ™ They weren’t fresh (I’m guessing they made waffles in the morning and let them sit idle while they made other baked goods because my waffles were REALLY soggy before I even put any syrup on them). Also, the waffles were lukewarm at best…I mean, couldn’t you have stuck them under a heat lamp for a couple of minutes so I didn’t have to eat cold waffles??! The pumpkin taste was not that special and the pumpkin seeds on top of the raisins on top of the soggy waffles just didn’t do it for me. Chris, on the other hand, enjoyed both dishes. I think we’re going to try one of the places on the upper west side one of these days.
