Cheap Eat of the Week: Rose and Sons’ bread pudding
Just add bacon (Image: Gizelle Lau)
We told you about Rose and Sons back in November, when it first opened and the lines for brunch were non-existent. These days, a brunch without waiting in line is still possible as long as you get in for 10 a.m., before all the Annex hipsters wake up.
At Rose and Sons, the bread pudding ($8) with wild blueberries breaks all the menu rules. It’s brunch, it’s an afternoon snack, it’s dessert, it’s late-night food — no matter what meal you happen to find yourself eating, the bread pudding is up for grabs, and that’s a wonderful, beautiful thing.
For an extra $3, you can also get the bread pudding “plus” — with bacon — if you’re feeling especially ravenous, or simply because you want bacon with your bread pudding, because why wouldn’t you want to put bacon on everything?
Rose and Sons, 176 Dupont St., 647-748-3287
