A couple of weeks ago I had off on a Sunday and even though I like trying out new brunch spots, we hadn't been to Six Penn in a while, not to mention I had never reviewed it on the blog. While dinner is a bit pricier, brunch offerings are extremely reasonable.
Complimentary sweet breads are brought upon being seated, although the selection varies from table to table. Our bread basket consisted of plain corn bread muffins as well as blueberry corn muffins, along with extremely delicious homemade apple butter. The people dining at the table next to us had been given a basket of scones.
For my entree I went with the Huevos Rancheros ($11) which consisted of a corn or flour tortilla (I chose the corn since the taste reminds me of Mexico), black beans, eggs, and ranchero sauce. Although it didn't say so on the menu, the dish did come with home fries which the waitress was nice enough to let me know about as I was planning on ordering a side of them. The huevos were excelente and while the portion was large I did clean my plate but was still not full at the end of the meal.
D ordered a favorite of his from past dinings, the Corned Beef Hash Skillet ($12) which featured over easy eggs topped with a whole grain mustard hollandaise sauce. Although he enjoyed it he didn't finish it, which is somewhat rare. However, I know that the amount of sodium in corned beef is extremely high and would make anyone feel stuffed in a short period of time.
There are restaurants that remain perennial favorites among a wide variety of demographics and Six Penn Kitchen is one of those. It simply does it "all"-food, ambiance, service-nearly flawlessly.
