Atomic Cowboy Brunch

When I hear "Atomic Cowboy", I have to admit I usually don't think of it as a foodie destination, much less brunch, but a bunch of us decided to try it out a few weeks ago. Brunch is served every Sunday morning from 10AM-3PM. We actually found the most about it on their Facebook page. http://www.facebook.com/AtomicCowboySTL

We got there a few minutes before 10AM so they let us sit at the bar and immediately tempted us with morning cocktails. They offered a unique take on Bloody Marys and instead served it with tequila! I was up for trying it and it went down smooth...my friends were too scared to take more than a sip.

Once everyone arrived, we grabbed a big table and I'd say by 11AM, it was pretty filled up. The more people in attendance meant a lot more things to try and everyone got something different.

My selection was really easy because I went with my favorite, Eggs Benedict, but with salmon!

Patience went with one of her favorites, French Toast, and this came with ice cream and a lot of powdered sugar on top to make it more like dessert for breakfast!

Since the menu had a Mexican flair to it, there was the usual Heuvos Rancheros as well.

Yet, they still offered up a Vegetarian Slinger...

 The crowd favorite easily were the doughnuts from Vincent Van Doughnut, since we ended up getting all of them. All the doughnuts were served with a glass of milk too. The one with chocolate chips on it was my favorite of course, but everyone else preferred the caramel.

If you're up for a new adventure, it's certainly worth checking out "the morning after".
