This last Saturday we decided to go out and find a good old fashion hipster brunch. Being true hipsters we know that a hipster brunch has to check off certain boxes to qualify, and traveling in North Carolina I wasn’t sure we would find it… but we did! Jackalope Jack’s in the neighborhood of Elisabeth was just what we were searching for. Hip neighborhood, high marks for brunch on Yelp, beer specials, and a large outdoor dog friendly patio. The only thing lacking was no artisan craft coffee when I sat down. But I can over look that as there was a Starbucks right across the street. No one is perfect!
Once we found a seat on the long, narrow covered patio Basil was happy right away. The waitress brought him a fresh bowl of water and offered him a Milk-bone biscuit. With Basil currently overjoyed we ordered a few $2 beers off the special and went to look over the brunch menu. Jackalope Jack’s offers plenty of lunch and breakfast options and it was a little hard to decide. I picked the garbage plate and was told by our waitress that is one of the house favorites. Nate had the three meat omelet and both were just what we wanted.
We finished our meal, watched a little college football on their outdoor TVs and sparked up a conversation with a fellow dog owner and his English mastiff, Duke. Overall, our experience was nice and perfect for a early Saturday afternoon. We will definitely be back for dinner and drinks another night and probably for brunch another morning. Check out Jackalope Jack’s if you are in the area and you will not be disappointed.
Travel well, Nap well, Live well!
