Beggar's breakfast: Kluge Farm Shop kitchen re-opens
Back in April, the Kluge Estate Farm Shop out on Blenheim Road announced that it was nixing its weekend brunch, closing the kitchen, and scaling back food options to cheese, baguettes, and cookies. That doesn’t appear to have gone over well with Farm Shop fans. According to manager Kristin Moses, folks began “begging” the country kitchen that is part of the Kluge Estate Winery to re-open.
“We stopped for a short time and heard from our customers,” says Moses. “Although the cheese is beloved, people wanted some of their favorites back.”
Those favorites, which include the classic quiches, crab cakes, curried chicken salad and homemade cookies, will now return on the weekends from 11am to 4pm. Unfortunately, though, Moses says they are not bringing back the formal brunch.
Still, as Moses points out, with crab cakes, quiche, gourmet cheeses, and, of course, their own Kluge wine on the menu, “one can still make a brunch out of a trip to the Farm Shop.”
