brunch at the kingfish cafe

the large photographs, scattered throughout the restaurant, 
are family members of owners, laurie and leslie. 
everyone from their great aunt, mary, 
to third cousin (and poet), langston hughes, can be seen.
^^^ i went with the chicken sausage, scrambled eggs, and giant biscuit on the side! ^^^
^^^ the kitchen is located directly behind this front desk area ^^^

the kingfish cafe, located on capitol hill, offers incredible, southern cuisine.
opening in 1997, kingfish has been serving 
chicken fried waffles, biscuits and gravy, liver and onions,
 and of course, red beans and rice to both local friends, and those from afar. 
i had the pleasure of visiting the kingfish cafe for brunch 
this past weekend,
and the food did not disappoint.
my eggs, sausage and biscuit were incredible,
and the coffee kept coming, a necessity for this coffee fiend.
the cafe is rustic and vintage-like, but very comfortable.

while reading up on the kingfish cafe,
i realized they will be closing at the end of this month;
i highly recommend you visit before they do so 
on january 25, 2015!
you can read more about the kingfish cafe menu, decor and history here.
