I went to The Fatted Calf 2 weeks ago for brunch. I love brunchy food and their menu sounded yummy.
The Fatted Calf
112 E Rusk St
Rockwall, TX 75087
Price (for brunch): $
It's located in downtown Rockwall, which is pretty
small. Reminded me of an even smaller version of
downtown Plano. The decor is pretty eclectic. I
liked the wood panels and animal hide as
decoration. I also liked the art on the walls.
Everything sounded good but I love me some
pancakes so I went with that!
Pancakes (with blueberries and granola) $7.50~
(plus $1 for 2nd topping).
It comes with 2 per
order. They were pretty big! Not the best pancakes I've ever had, but pretty damn good. Fresh berries on top and inside the pancakes, crunchy granola, fluffy pancakes. No complaints! I'm especially glad I added the granola, added a crunch and nuttiness to it. :) I ate it all!!!! haha.
They had a jar of homemade Strawberry Preserves at
the table. It was awesome! I put that on my
pancakes and it made it even better. We had
finished pretty much the entire jar at the end of
the meal. hahaha.
The Monterey Omelette (avocado, local tomatoes,
fresh mozzarella, spinach; with side of wheat
toast and hashbrowns) $8.50~
My bf ordered this.
The omlette was fresh and yummy. A little smaller
than I expected but with the sides, it was still a
big portion. I asked for the hashbrowns extra
crispy and they were delish! The strawberry
preserves on the toast...NOM!!
It was a great late brunch. No complaints from
either of us. And the waitress told us you can buy
their preserves in the shop next door! (Too bad it
wasn't open on Sundays, cuz we wanted some!)
If you're looking for a good brunch spot in
Rockwall, check out The Fatted Calf. Just the name
alone should tell you they got some tasty food!
