Yesterday was a beautiful day. It was Friday, very nice outside and both my husband and I had the glorious day off. We decided to head to brunch at a good brunchin’ hour – around 10:00 am. We hopped, skipped and jumped our way downtown and happened upon Dilly Deli. I’d always been curious about the place but never actually been in because honestly, I’ve heard very mixed reviews. As we arrived we were promptly greeted, seated and had our drink orders placed. The inside is colorful and eclectic and we settled in as we pondered what to order for breakfast.
I decided to order the Green Eggs & Ham ($7.50) which is a dish of hash browns, with spinach, ham, pesto, Parmesan cheese, sundried tomatoes and fried two eggs; however, I choose to have my eggs scrambled instead. I usually don’t like dishes all willy-nilly, haphazardly plopped on top of each other like the Green Eggs & Ham was served but this time I didn’t mind. I’m more of a compartmentalized type of girl but on this dish the pile of breakfast fare just worked. Everything blended so well together and the stars of the show were the heaping amounts of sundried tomatoes and the delicious pesto. I would definitely order this one again!
Eric ordered the Vince & Joel ($7) which is a ½ order of French toast, two eggs & choice of breakfast meat. He chose sausage and to have those eggs scrambled. The sausage patties were a little on the sweet but we both really enjoyed that. The french toast was nice and eggy, and Eric gobbled it up in a hurry. Overall, he thinks it was a great french toast platter which is something he orders all the time.
We also ordered an adorable little cheesecake tart topped with lemon curd from their pretty dessert case that I just happen to be eating while I write this. I like the unique menu options Dilly Deli has to offer and I really want to go back and try their House Bloody Mary. I hear it’s quite spicy which is right up my alley!
Dilly Deli is located at 402 East 2nd Street, Tulsa
