Russell's on Macklind

My friend Amy keeps raving about Russell's on Macklind and I finally got the chance to go for brunch this past month. They are open for lunch and dinner as well and is in a quaint neighborhood spot for those city types.

I also learned that you have to say the "on Macklind" part because there is one in Fenton too!

It's a good thing there are quite a few tables both inside and out since it got packed for brunch right around 10:30AM! You order from the counter and the line was almost to the door at the busiest time. It worked out well for me because it gave me time to walk up to the menu board to decide what to order. That way there is no hesitation when you get up to the cashier and you can place your order quickly.

Another trick they do is have you line up in front of all of the desserts...and yes I fell prey to a large piece of gooey butter cake. They also had a peanut butter version, but I wanted to try the original first. It took me three sittings to eat it!

For my actual breakfast, you know I went with eggs, a Veggie Egg Wrap, so there was spinach, peppers, tomato, feta, and onion in a wheat wrap.

Patience got the Breakfast Grilled Cheese. I was quite jealous, but I did get a bite. Both items came with a lot fruit, which I really appreciated and it felt it made the brunch worth the money since it was quite filling.
