Shelby and I drove up to Richmond today to have brunch with Marleigh. It’s her birthday tomorrow! We tried getting into Black Sheep and Cafe 821, but both places were packed. We tried Balliceaux and they had a spot open and I’m glad they did.

The food there was great and the service was friendly. I ordered the Soul (Mama Loves You). Buttermilk biscuits with country sausage gravy, there was a little bite with the gravy and the biscuits were perfect. I also had a side of Ironic, truffle cured bacon! Super good! Shelby ordered the Duck and Waffles. It was topped with a spicy maple syrup and whipped butter. I’ve heard of chicken and waffles but never tried it, this was a really good combination. Marleigh got the Proper Fry-up, a classic breakfast plate, with home fries, Surry sausage, house bacon, eggs, beans, toast, and grilled tomato.

All-in-all, we had a great time and I’m glad we had chance to try the place out.
