Brunch at 10/6 Grille in Sweet Petes
During our visit to Sweet Petes Candy Shop, we decided to get some food at the new 10/6 Grille. It has an Alice in Wonderland which is one of my favorite stories. My husband’s birthday is coming up soon and I was hoping that this would be somewhere we’d be able to take him for brunch that day because it was so different than your average restaurant.
The decoration inside the restaurant is done well and captures the essence of the Lewis Carrol classic. It’s whimsical and fun which also works perfectly with
Sweet Petes. The concept of the two businesses fit well together.
I thought the set up of the keys, clocks, hearts, and chairs on the ceiling was a nice touch to the Alice in Wonderland decor. The kids loved the look of the restaurant!
It was 11 am, and the kids aren’t big breakfast eaters so they decided to go with lunch. My daughter chose the cheeseburger and fries while my son chose the chicken tenders and fries. I wasn’t super hungry and had been wanting some beignets so when I noticed them on the menu I couldn’t help but get them.
The burger was good, my daughter wasn’t thrilled because it had cheddar cheese on it but she really loved the fries and ranch dressing. The chicken fingers (as well as the fries) were really good and were a hit with my son. The beignets looked fantastic and were cut into these adorable hearts covered with powdered sugar and included a fruit puree on the side. However, the taste was where things took a turn. It is very possible it was an off day or an off order but it tasted like the beignets were fried in the same oil as fish. I had excitedly tried one and was quickly done.
It was early when we went in so they weren’t super busy however it did seem to take a longer than average time to get our food. Then again, sometimes with well-done burgers, it does seem to take longer so that could have played a part. By the time the food came my 6-year-old was getting good and hangry and I was having to start threatening that I would pay for our drinks and we would go home.
Thoughts on the 10/6 Grill
It’s really cute inside and as I mentioned the chicken fingers were really good. There were a couple other menu items that I think would be worth trying there and am open to going back again one day. I think because it is Alice in Wonderland theme I had built it up in my mind a lot and was let down a little. The only thing I can say for sure is that I won’t try the beignets again.
