You had me at “Crab & shrimp cakes benadict”. Okay and maybe freshly baked pastries & artisan cheese display…

I think it sounds delightful ๐Ÿ™‚

The fresh pastries and pasta primavera sound wonderful. However the rest seem a little too “exotic” for lack of a better word for people who may have picky or simple tastes and they may feel that there isn’t anything they can eat besides the pastries and fruit platter. However you know your guests best and what they will or won’t eat. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with wanting to serve different foods than what everyone else does but you also have to take other palates besides your own into consideration since you may have some half-starving guests stop by Wendy’s on the way home. Just something to think about.

I hate to say this, because it DOES sound delicious, but … if your family is like mine (uh, uncultured, for lack of a better term; they think regular black pepper is ‘too spicy’, and don’t get me started on calling italian food ‘ethnic’, or the time my mom ordered chicken nuggets off the children’s menu at my fav lebanese restaurant) it might be good to have a few standards in there.

BUT if your family and friends are all foodies, then GO FOR IT!!!

…seriously, anyone else drooling?

I think a few sweet dishes (like pastry or croissants) will balance out the savory list a little bit. Otherwise, yum.

Wow, I am so hungry now. I am a foodie …so I would be in heaven. I would love the seared (as long as it’s cooked all the way) char and the salad – love radishes … and I’m allergic to eggs and dairy but it all sounds so delicious. I cannot imagine anyone being unhappy with those choices.

Make sure you have bellinis, mimosas and bloody marys! =)  … haha

P.S.and I would include lots of bacon… because I dont eat breakfast out unless I have bacon =)

I think it’s very sophisticated for my palette as well.. If you could include something less sophisticated for the simple folks I think that would be cool. I am a steak and eggs type of person for breakfast or a bacon and biscuit… but with that being said if you have foodies there they will LOVE it..

To be honest, I don’t even know what half of those things are, but as a guest I wouldn’t mind trying something new if there was a description to match each one, like in a restaurant

I think it very much depends on where you are geographically. We’re in the San Francisco Bay Area, and those things sound both delicious (getting hungry just reading it!) and also very much along the lines of what you might find on many restaurant brunch menus around here. I’m guessing Seattle is somewhat similar on the foodie front, so if your guests are local or from other parts of the country where gourmet brunch food is “in,” they won’t be taken aback by the selection.

The one thing I would say is that, while I *love* coddled eggs, a lot of people (my fiance included) who are otherwise egg-eaters find them a little too soft and runny. Most benedicts have poached eggs, which also tend to be on the softer side. You might think about adding a “firm egg” dish of some sort (frittata, quiche, something along those lines) for people who don’t do soft eggs. You could pick something a little more traditional to kill two birds with one stone, so to speak.

That menu sounds AWESOME! That being said, I know alot of people who would thing it is too “exotic” (sigh) and go home hungry! But I think it’s AWESOME!
