Well Dined

I had heard of this place in some magazine or other because of the homemade poptarts.  So when I was in Reston and craving some mid-day breakfast, I decided to try it out.  It's kind of like an upscale version of an old-fashioned diner.  If that makes any sense.

The menu is a mini newspaper (or bulletin, if you will) that also has some articles on the namesake and how the restaurant was founded.  They have boozy milkshakes (very on trend right now), so I tried the Bananas Foster with banana rum and caramel.  Very good.

Then I tried the signature breakfast combo - The Big Mark - which comes with 3 eggs, 2 bacon, 2 sausage, hashbrowns, toast, and a poptart (I chose the brown sugar bacon flavor).  Everything was great except for the sausage, which was way too spicy for me.  The poptart was indeed tasty, but I thought it needed a higher filling to crust ratio.

I brought a couple more flavors of poptart home (blueberry cheesecake and strawberry, I believe) to sample a range and so that Jasper could try them.  Again, they were good but we both agreed they needed more filling.

Here's the fun news for breakfast-loving me - they are opening up a location at Mosaic, which is very close to me!  I might even sample some non-breakfast items... maybe... probably not.

  1. Sounds like my kind of pop tart! The crust is my favorite part and I am not that interested in the filling. I joke with Channing all the time that I wish they made pop tarts with no filling. He says this is sacrilegious, but what can I say, I’m a heathen.
