Tucked into the charming Hotel Ella, Goodall's Kitchen is a cozy eatery offering breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner. We had the opportunity to enjoy brunch there last weekend, and I can honestly say I scraped my plate clean.

Before we even considered the food menu, we had to narrow down from several delicious cocktail options, many with a focus on herbs. We sampled the Cranberry + Thyme, made with Deep Eddy cranberry vodka and a splash of lemon. Not only was this a unique brunch drink, but it's perfect for the holiday season. We also tried the Blunderbuss made with gin, prosecco, lemon and rosemary. Goodall's also offers more standard options like bloody marys or mimosas, which can also be made with grapefruit juice or cranberry.

Next we could not begin to think about main dishes without first trying the warm cinnamon sugar donuts with a creamy nutella dip. I personally have a thing for starting brunch off with sweets and this was the perfect way to whet our appetite.

Our group also sampled several of the main dishes on the menu. From omelettes to salads, each of us was incredibly pleased with both the portion sizes and the flavors. The hash was my favorite dish, made with perfectly runny poached eggs, chorizo, caramelized onion and cotija cheese served in a skillet.

Not only is the food delicious, but the servers and staff were extremely accommodating for our group. As a bonus, the hotel valet is free (gratuity only). Still looking for plans for Thanksgiving day? Goodall's is offering a $68/person buffet from 12-8pm featuring sourdough stuffing, honey biscuits, and apple trifle.  With delicious food and charming decor inside and out, Goodall's is the perfect spot for an intimate meal this holiday season.
