Monday Munchies: A go-to Fayetteville breakfast spot

Alex here. Sometimes Worth and I get breakfast together to talk about y'all.

State of play: The Farmer's Table Cafe in Fayetteville serves up comfort food for breakfast with a Southern flair.

  • We're talking biscuits, a "classic benedict turned Ozark," omelets and pancakes.

The scene: This is what would've happened if your Arkansas grandma opened a restaurant. The mismatched coffee mugs could have come from any coffee drinker's home collection. The Farmer's Table is inside a converted house and the menu is all recognizable stuff done really well.

What I ate: The Farmer's Hash Bowl ($15) with potatoes, two over-easy eggs, chorizo and veggies — mine had squash, zucchini and onions. It was exactly what I wanted in a full breakfast. The chorizo added so much flavor and the potatoes weren't greasy. I doused the bowl in hot sauce.

Worth's thought bubble: I went semitraditional with the "Arkansawyer," a pick-four combo ($15) — two over-easy eggs, biscuit and gravy, sausage and the gouda grits.

  • Our server suggested the sausage and agreed heartily with the choice of grits.
  • As Alex pointed out, this is somewhat common fare, but the preparation is top shelf and the food is fresh and plate-cleaning good.
  • Pro tip: The sausage stood out and wasn't afraid of making a peppery statement. Fantastic stuff.

Stop by: 7am-3pm Sunday and Tuesday-Thursday; 7am-3pm and 5-9pm Friday-Saturday at 1079 S. School Ave. in Fayetteville.
