After hearing all the amazing things about Wolf Peach’s food, I decided to take a stroll to this restaurant that sits atop Brewers Hill with my girlfriend to see what the hype was about. Wolf Peach, formerly known as Roots, is known for locally- sourced eats that are prepared by Chef Toner and his staff.
A 6,000 pound wooden oven serve up delicious options and on this particular day I decided to try my luck with their waffle smothered in strawberry jam, hazelnut butter and whipped cream, along with their vegan sausage. Although I understand the quality of ingredients makes Wolf Peach the place that it Is, I think their food is a little overpriced. I also do not like how all brunch items are listed at $13, especially when the serving sizes are not proportionate to one another. For example, my waffle was not the same size as an eggs benedict dish. I would have preferred that pricing was relative or that my waffle was just a tad larger in size. Considering everything is prepared fresh (as it should be) and is locally-sourced, I can somewhat understand why their prices for brunch might be a tad bit high. By the same token, Beans N' Barley offers similar options but at lower prices.
Nonetheless, the waffle itself was fantastic, as the sweetness of everything topping the waffle made for a satisfying brunch option along with the vegan sausage, which was seasoned like a traditional pork sausage. The servers seemed to enjoy working at Wolf Peach, as their demeanors all pointed to satisfaction and were very helpful when we asked about items on their menu. While this place was a bit overpriced to me for less than large brunch, I would love to try their dinner to see if my stomach is filled and pockets are satisfied.
Overall, Wolf Peach delivers on its environment and locally-sourced eats, making me a believer in what they serve. I'd like to think I will be back for more to discover what Wolf Peach's dinner entails and if it provides more food for my money the next time around!
