Station in Granville combines two of my favourite issues: breakfast and trains!
Touring residence from an in a single day on the Outdated Pines treehouse at The Mohicans, we detoured by means of Granville for breakfast at Station. The brand new-ish cafe makes its residence within the outdated Granville prepare station. The rail strains way back have been transformed to bike paths, so these days it’s a helpful little spot reachable by bike or automobile, simply south of the primary road in Granville.
Station options counter service, with a small bar dealing with the espresso counter and seats inside, plus an enormous patio out entrance.
The baked items go above and past the usual choices. Sure, there are bagels and muffins, however we additionally noticed conchas, cardamom knots, bourbon pumpkin bars.
Espresso comes from Brioso Espresso. We are able to attest that Station whips up a terrific cortado and cappuccino.
The bourbon pumpkin bar takes all one of the best issues about pumpkin pie and provides it the beautiful warming contact of bourbon.
The menu covers 8-9 fundamental dishes, primarily sandwiches, plus a set of salads and sides. Along with the complete espresso bar, they serve a small choice of beer, wine, and cocktails like mimosas and a peach bellini.
The Bodega breakfast sandwich options folded egg, Black Radish Creamery cheddar, and caramelized onion with “Station sauce” on an “E’ryday Roll.” Splendidly composed, made even higher by including the thick minimize bacon.
Even higher was the Potato Bowl: fried crimson potatoes, egg, seasonal greens, arugula, pimento cheese, pickled candy peppers, all introduced collectively by a roasted crimson pepper pesto.
The colder climate means much less patio time, so do count on that the eating room will refill rapidly.
The primary snowfall of the 12 months hit simply as we arrived, which enhanced the expertise: sipping espresso and consuming breakfast from a comfortable renovated prepare station, watching the massive flakes drift down.
Even apart from the charming setting, Station does lots to endear itself. Pleasant service, nice espresso, and a menu that elevates the classics whereas nonetheless remaining approachable.
Subsequent time we go to, it’ll be by bike!
