Brunch at Harvest

Brunch with Miss Yunks’ parents is always a foodie treat.  From Henrietta’s Table to Cafe Luna to others not written about here, my parents pick great restaurants for special brunches.  Father’s Day was no exception this year.  My dad picked Harvest in Harvard Square for Father’s Day brunch.

I’d been to Harvest once for dinner and, having loved my dinner experience, I was really excited to try brunch.  Harvest offers a three course prix fixe menu for $35 per person.  If you want a quick and small bite to eat on Sunday morning, Harvest is not where you want to go.  If you want to indulge in three delicious courses, each appropriately portioned to leave room for the next course, plan your next brunch at Harvest.

We sat outside and enjoyed the beautiful courtyard while we started our meal with a basket of assorted breads and strong coffee.

I love when butter looks like a perfect scoop of ice cream.

For my appetizer, I chose the Seasonal Fruit and Yogurt.  This was a perfect portion size to get a taste of the creamy Greek yogurt and each bite of fruit tasted so fresh and sweet.

For my entree, I chose the Chilaquiles Verde.  I loved everything about this dish.  The avocado was perfectly ripe and there was just the right amount of spice to top the light fluffy eggs and creamy black beans.

For dessert, we shared each dish we ordered.

Espresso Chocolate Cheesecake with Chocolate & Caramel Sauces, Chantilly Cream & Caramel Tuile

Citrus Olive Oil Cake with Pomegranate Cream & Marinated Citrus

Sticky Toffee Pudding with vanilla ice cream

The espresso chocolate cheesecake was my favorite of the three.  It was rich and creamy without being overly chocolaty, and of course I enjoyed the glob of whipped cream on the side.  The sticky toffee pudding ranks second for me.  It’s only fault is not being chocolate.  The warm gooey pudding with cold ice cream was a delicious combination and I’d happily eat either of these desserts again.  The olive oil cake was surprisingly dry.

The food, service, and atmosphere at Harvest were everything my family likes in a Sunday brunch.  I don’t think I can use the word perfect enough to describe the food.  It was simply delicious.

How did you celebrate Father’s Day?

    That looks like an insane meal. I’ve been to Harvest once and loved it. I want to go again specifically for that sticky toffee pudding.

    Nice! I haven’t been there in years…the bread pudding and your entree look good!
