Since highland bakery is known for their tasty baked goods, I had to start my meal off with the 🍓🥐and the iconic Cinnamon roll. The 🥐 was a pleasant surprise, because the 🍓 glaze was infused on the inside with cream 🧀 . Consistency of the cream 🧀 was thick and savory. The 🥐 was berry fluffy and flaky. On the other hand, the Cinnamon roll was a very different experience. It was not as warm as I anticipated it to be but, the thickness of the frosting made up for it. The cinnamon roll had the same firmness as 🥖which meant that it was not as flaky as I expected. I highly recommend both starters but the 🥐 was a clear winner 🌟. The entrée options were definitely harder to choose from 🤔 because of the variety offered, but I decide on the Ricotta Pancakes and the Hopping Highland Grits. Ricotta pancakes have always been fascinating to me because using 🧀 as a base was an unfamiliar concept 🤷🏽♂️ . 🤞🏽Surprisingly, it worked very well because the pancakes were a lot fluffier than their buttermilk counterparts. To dress these pancakes, I was given a side of blueberry compote. The sweetness of the powdered sugar and compote added a nice candied taste. Words cannot even describe the presentation of the grits 😲. At the centerpiece of the dish, they placed a Cheddar wafer which was a nice twist to the cheese usually being mixed in. The diced peppers added a little heat to the dish and the texture from the black-eyed peas was awesome and added a nice earthy flavor. Cherry 🍅 implemented some color and was great way to add some subtle sweetness. The bacon was extra crispy and was a perfect end to the entire meal.
Thanks Highland Bakery for the delicious delights. See you soon and everyone go check them out at one of their many locations!!!!!!

Spent the day crying in the streets of London listening to the @starisbornmovie soundtrack, crying on the tube reading “Small Great Things” (thanks, @cordiewx 🙃), and crying internally because the parental unit preferred @nandosuk over @barrafinalondon. 😹 I’m not over this turbot special with crispy potatoes. 🐟
