Some Sweet Child O’ Mine at Old Town Pour House in Gaithersburg, MD

Shelly Murray and I went to Old Town Pour House in Gaithersburg, MD for a quick bite to eat and found they had a nice menu for Sunday Brunch. The restaurant is open and spacious with floor-to-ceiling glass panels that were open to let a nice breeze in. We sat near the bar area in front of their many TVs playing Sunday NFL football.

Rather than sandwiches, Shelly ordered Love Me Two Times, which is two eggs with toast, potato, sausage, and bacon, and I ordered the Sweet Child O’ Mine French Toast. Shelly’s dish was good, standard fare. The bacon was especially thick and delicious. My French Toast was particularly good, among the best I have ever had. It was thick brioche bread made with vanilla bean ice cream batter stuffed with Bailey’s cream cheese. It was crusty on the outside and firm and cheesy on the inside, topped with mixed berry compote.

SWEET CHILD O' MINE Stuffed French toast with brioche bread, Bailey's cream cheese, vanilla bean ice cream batter, mixed berry compote, powdered sugar.

LOVE ME TWO TIMES 2 eggs any style, 2 house-smoked thick-cut bacon strips, 2 breakfast sausage links, toasted challah bread, cheesy potato casserole.

Our quick bite to eat turned into a relaxing two hours as we enjoyed our meals, a few drinks, and watched the Ravens – Chiefs game. While Old Town Pour House is a restaurant chain, I was pleasantly surprised by their brunch menu, and definitely recommend the French Toast.
