The interior is a mini getaway with wood and branches lining the walls. There is literally a tree (not real) dripping with lanterns right behind the host stand. It makes the place feel very cozy and intimate which is perfect for a Sunday brunch or even a romantic dinner for two.
My husband and I met some friends for brunch and we instantly decided on mimosas for the entire table. Who can turn down $2 mimosas? Definitely not me. Our server immediately brought us our mimosas, coffee, and freshly baked bread for the table. The warm bread was rustic with two different types to fulfill both our sweet and savory taste buds.
I ordered the French toast and my husband ordered the eggs Reuben. The French toast, while not being the best I ever had, was very delicious. It stayed in line with the restaurant’s theme of being natural, organic, and fresh. The flavor profile was excellent with the apples and raisins mixing well together, but the dish was not as decadent as I expected. The Challah bread slices were modest and not as moist as I prefer. The presentation was pretty but not fantastic. Overall, the dish was good could still use some tweaking. The presentation could be more eclectic by playing on the restaurant’s theme and the dish could have been more substantial.
My husband’s eggs benedict was overall very good with the thousand island dressing having a perfect spice. Unfortunately, the eggs were inconsistently cooked with one being perfect and one being overdone. This did not deter him though; he loved the crunchiness of the English muffin combined with the egg to make a perfect little open faced sandwich.
The restaurant has nice food with sweet little touches that take it to the next level. The atmosphere, the bread, and the little jar for catching fireflies but to also bring you your bill help to compensate for the pleasant but not fantastic food. Firefly has the location, the ambience, and the clientele. I think if this restaurant focused on the food; the presentation, the consistency, and the flavors then Firefly would be at the top of my list.
