Oddfellows, tucked away at the heart of the Bishops Arts District serves up traditional, organic fare in a modern vintage space. The room overflows with an airy natural light with bits and pieces of flair that places you right at home. The rustic wooden tables and chairs combined with a unique concentration in the art of coffe brewing, it’s the perfect spot for a Sunday brunch.
This week, Josh Childress, Chef de Cuisine at Oddfellows shares his fried egg sandwich and specialty pancakes. The open-faced fried egg sandwich starts with two crispy slices of white toast from Esmeralda’s Bakery, layered with heirloom tomatoes, fresh mozzarella cheese and 2 eggs cooked to an easy perfection — it’s what you crave on weekend mornings. Coffee + egg sandwich + Sunday comics — could it get any better?
Don’t skip the pancake sampler, which comes with a red velvet pancake, pumpkin and oatmeal chocolate chip, which are Chef Josh’s specialty and certainly the rosemary breakfast potatoes with natural sea salt and cracked black pepper.
It’s what food is about here at Oddfellows: bringing fresh organic food at affordable prices. Their menu ranges from traditional recipes like their honey butter biscuits with gravy for the home-styled eaters and accommodating adventurous foodies with modern options like their duck hash with jalapenos and ranchero sauce.
They’re not only serious about food but their coffee too. Their specialty is their hand-poured drip coffee, that’s not only a wonderful show in itself but the superior flavor and quality of coffee beans makes it a must-have for coffee lovers. It makes you sit back, relax and take a moment to enjoy the finer things in life.
When asked what Chef Josh’s inspiration for his menu items were he replied —
“The seasons, the seasons just inspire me. I stay on the phone with my purveyors and ask them “Hey what do you get in that’s top of the line today? And I try to utilize that. You don’t have to pay $32 to have something organic on your plate, we find the best sources so we can offer it at affordable prices”
