Since it’s been a while since we had brunch, the Boyfriend and I headed over to Jane in the South Village. I had made reservations on OpenTable before I left my house and I’m so glad I did because when we arrived around 12:45pm it was packed! Granted it was the day before New Years Eve but it was still a Monday! We were seated immediately after we checked in, which was a plus. Judging from the amount of people waiting by the door, I thought we would’ve had to wait despite our reservation.
Despite the fact that I walked in craving French Toast, after looking around me and seeing everyone else’s delicious sandwiches, I opted for a BLT + E, which is a classic BLT with bacon, lettuce and tomato with an added sunny up egg and lemon aioli ($14.00). It comes with a huge side of fries, which is definitely more than enough to fill you up. In fact, I was too full to finish all my fries! The addition of the sunny up egg was amazing – the runny yoke added so much flavor to the otherwise typical BLT.
The Boyfriend went with the Avocado Sandwich ($14.00), which features avocado with goat cheese, cucumber, sprouts, tomato, and red onion on multigrain bread. Instead of fries, it comes with a side of of mixed greens, making the entire dish super healthy. The Boyfriend and I split our sandwiches so we could try them both. Although the avocado sandwich got messy to eat, it was very refreshing and light.
We ended up our meal with their Seven Layer Chocolate Cake ($8.00), which features a stiff chocolate cake with chantilly cream, whipped ganache, and chocolate sauce. I love stiffer chocolate cakes so this was perfect for me. I hate when I cut into a cake and it falls apart because it’s too soft! The cake was not too sweet, which was amazing. I highly recommend this dessert!
Service was attentive enough. Despite the packed dining room, our dishes were cleared when we finished and our food arrived in a timely manner. I definitely want to be back to try out their French Toast since everyone else seemed to be ordering it if they weren’t ordering sandwiches that day!
