I’ve wanted to try this place out for a while now and had the opportunity to go 2-days in a row over a recent weekend. Northside Kitchenette is owned by the same people who run the next door Northside Social (one of my favorite north-side restaurants for a date night).
The first day we went around lunch time I had the “kitchen’ette’ sink” ($12) which features a 1/2 order of Biscuits and Gravy topped with breakfast potatoes, bacon crumbles, two eggs over easy and cheddar cheese. This was a really good play on the type of skillet dishes you can get at other places but this was in a bowl with enough gravy and sauce for 2 orders. I really liked this dish. It was rich and filling enough to leave me full for most for the rest of the day. I totally spaced taking pictures but it’s worth checking out if you’re hungry. My son ordered the same as me and the girlfriend ordered the Eggs Benedict ($11) (sauce on the side). Everyone was happy with their dishes and each said they would order the same again.
The next day we had the opportunity to return, and we did! This time I went for the Eggs Benedict (also sauce on the side because a bad sauce can ruin an otherwise delicious dish) and my date ordered a half-order of their brioche french toast ($6). A couple of libations were in order and we tried the Raspberry Bellini ($9) and Hibiscus Mimosa ($10) the latter of which included a delicious candied hibiscus flower in the bottom of the glass. Both were well balanced and very refreshing.
Just about all of the dishes come with roasted, and quartered, potatoes. While delicious in the “kitchen’ette’ sink” (because of all of the sauces) they were strongly seasoned on their own. We definitely tasted cumin and, I think, rosemary. I appreciate the aggressive seasoning, which is unusual in most potato sides, but it was a little much on their own so I opted for fruit on the second visit. The fruit cup was delicious and contained a great mix of pineapple, grapes, and berries.
I’m really happy with the quality of the food at Northside Kitchenette. Everything tasted fresh and the portions were just right for my appetite. Being able to get seated right away on a weekend is a BIG plus in my book. They had a steady rotation of customers and the service on both occasions was attentive and just right. I’m happy to drive down from Fishers every once in a while to enjoy a nice breakfast/Brunch/Lunch at this place.
What’s your experience with Northside Kitchenette? Any other places I should be checking out on a Sunday morning?
