Brunch fit for a king at The Good King Tavern

Boy, oh boy, do I have a great brunch spot for you to check out! The Good King Tavern opened right around the first of the year in the Bella Vista neighborhood, but this charming brasserie has only been serving brunch for about a month now. It's a total hidden gem and I'm sure that the Sunday brunch line will be around the block soon enough, but before it happens you should get over there and feast on their special brunch items, and even try out some of the regular menu items as well. 

We started out with a few openers, the escargots, spicy octopus, and the lobster deviled eggs (from the brunch chalkboard.) EVERYTHING was delicious but the hit was the octopus, which was perfectly cooked and amazingly flavorful. The coffee is served in a small or large French press and we opted for the large coffee with a side of Bloody Mary's. 

After our openers left us in a culinary coma, our main entrees came out. I opted for the Open Faced Croque Madame which came loaded up with pork, cheese, a fried egg and a mustard mornay sauce. My other companions ordered the poached eggs with sausage, and the omelette with ratatouille and baguette. Everything was incredible. We really stopped talking for a solid 10 minutes as we privately indulged in our own plates. We finished off the meal by sharing the pot de creme which exceeded all of my wildest expectations. 

I will definitely head back to The Good King Tavern for brunch again or even dinner! Check out more photos below (I apologize about the photo quality, I only had cell phone camera available!)
