Lucky Charms with Kahlua instead of milk? Brings back memories of getting sent to the principal’s office for falling down drunk during the Pledge of Allegiance in our fifth-grade homeroom class.
That was the last time we ever ate from our Mom’s breakfast bowl by mistake.
Well, now you can taste the indulgent decadence of sweet cereal topped with sweet booze as part of the brand-new brunch menu at BarNone near White Rock Lake. It’s been years since anything with riboflavin has made us so tipsy, and we’re here for it.
Our suggestion for balancing out all that sugar? One of their fully-loaded 20-ounce Bloody Marys crafted with Tito’s Handmade Vodka and housemade Bloody Mary mix. One comes accompanied by a cheesesteak eggroll and a potato empanada, the other adorned with all sorts of meats and cheeses. (Celery makes it healthy.)
If you don’t want all the hearty garnishes, you can also enjoy $3 Bloody Marys ($5 with Tito’s), $2 mimosas and $4 Karbach draft beers.
Then, once you’re set with cocktails (and cocktails disguised as cereal), check out the focused brunch menu with no-nonsense staples such as breakfast sandwiches made with bacon or chopped steak, fresh muffins and danishes, scrambled eggs with blackened salmon and sausage gravy on white toast.
Nearly everything comes with grits or breakfast potatoes. We highly suggest the potatoes as they’re some of the best we’ve ever had. They’re cut really small (and perfectly cubed), which allows them to become delightfully crispy. We couldn’t get enough.
We go to BarNone often and love the patio, especially now that they have some great sun-blocking shades.
You may find yourself spending a long time enjoying their all-day weekend drink specials, but consider taking a break for an hour or so. It’s only a 12-minute walk to White Rock Lake and if you get in a few extra steps, you have our permission to return to BarNone for another round or two of drinks.
Or another bowl of cereal.
