Brunch in Clarkston, MI – The Fed

We spent the holidays up in Clarkston, MI with Kyle’s family. It’s always so nice to get away and spend the time with your loved ones. We love visiting Clarkston – it’s such a cute town with adorable shops & good restaurants. Recently, a new restaurant opened in the old bank called The Fed that we had been dying to check out.

It’s not the most kid-friendly place (well, it’s kid-friendly enough for brunch, but not necessarily toddler friendly!) so we hadn’t had a chance to go. Kyle’s parents graciously offered to watch Aidan so we could check it out and I’m so glad we did!

As always, Kyle & I shared a few plates – truffle fries, biscuits with chorizo gravy, and French toast with macerated berries! It was all soooooo good! My favorite was the biscuits & gravy. It was a pretty small portion for the price (I just ordered a side), but did not disappoint in flavor!

Kyle loved the French toast – it had a vanilla custard inside that gave it some extra flair. I think his favorite dish though was the truffle fries! He said it reminded him of Au Cheval in Chicago (one of our favorites) which is a huge compliment.

Inside, the restaurant couldn’t be prettier. It felt like we were in any major city, not in small town Michigan. They have redone the vault into a private dining area and has a unique down stairs spot also great for large groups. The added sparkle from the holidays made the place truly magical! I definitely want to check it out again for dinner (and maybe post-pregnancy when I can try a fun cocktail, too!).  Be sure to check it out if you’re ever in the Clarkston area!
