GB&D: Brunchin' with Friends

On a hot Sunday afternoon, my hubby and I made our way to GB&D aka Golden Brown & Delicious. We were meeting our friends there to grab a bite to eat and catch up on life. I've been wanting to try this restaurant in the West End of Greenville for a while now and I finally got the opportunity to try it!

Best part about GB&D? There's a coffee shop in the same building called the Village Grind, so if you're in the mood for a good cup of coffee, you can order it without having to walk outside!

What did I order? I opted for the iced rose cardamom latte with almond milk. How can I describe this latte? The somewhat floral fragrance definitely stood out with this latte and makes it rather hard to pinpoint the flavor profile. Just note if you're looking for more of a flowery taste, I'd definitely recommend trying it! In addition to the latte, I ordered the strawberry donut. The donut was more dense than chewy and the glaze was subtle, yet sweet, but overall, it was delectable. 

We only had to wait a few minutes for our table at GB&D, which was quite refreshing! Now, onto the brunch. (Yum!)

I ordered the chicken + waffles. The fried chicken was crisped to perfection and the waffles were light and fluffy. The meal also came with grilled squash, which was great!

Their locally-sourced meal changes daily, so they don't always serve the exact same meals. Their noodles are handmade and fresh and they use local beef! I'm just plain OBSESSED with this place because it's made from scratch food and utilizes top-quality ingredients, which are FREE OF TOXINS + CHEMICALS. 

I preach quite often that we should be eating toxin-free foods that aren't processed because it's not good for our body. You're more prone to diseases and illnesses. Not to mention, it makes you feel like crap! I know not everyone can afford to buy say fresh chicken or say grass-fed beef, but start by eliminating pre-packaged chicken and buy it when it's on sale. 

If you could replace a processed meal with a meal you make from scratch, then your body will thank you. I'm not a nutritionist, but I do have some nutritional insight.
