Brunching Old Town: Columbia Firehouse
Columbia Firehouse was a pleasant encounter for brunch. We walked in with no reservation on an early Saturday afternoon, and the staff made a point to welcome us...as well as baby. We started with the tuna tartare tacos, which were not fabulous. But, Southern-themed entrees made up for it. My "Southern Benedict" served with a fried green tomato and jalapeno-accented hollandaise had nice flavors and was topped with a perfectly-cooked egg. C loved his traditional Po'Boy. The cornbread in the bread basket certainly made us happy as well. Other hits here include the house-made sausages. Generally, a reliable place to brunch. Lyon Hall could take a nod from the kitchen here - consistency, even without reaching the highest of heights, has its own value.
