Unfortunately this is the only surviving picture from Surrey's. I ate a monstrous breakfast sandwich with sausage (7.50 on a bagel, 6.00 on toast), a huge plate of biscuits with their house made sausage gravy ($6.00). I drank their fresh squeezed juices. I enjoyed their eclectically designed tables, but unfortunately I was so excited... I forgot to take pictures. Bad blogger, bad bad blogger.
This soul surviving snapshot was taken by the wonderful Jessie as I scarfed my heavenly food with a Homer-Simpson-like glee. If I could only have one meal in the south it would undoubtedly be breakfast and probably be at Surrey's.
This is Shrimp and Grits ($12.50). Surrey's take on the classic shrimp and grits is billed as a "shrimp in a Louisianan style BBQ sauce over grits" This sauce was an incredible concoction which reminded me a lot of Shrimp Etouffee over grits with bacon garnish. A creamy, heavily spiced sauce with just a hint of sweetness made this plate of food probably my favorite in New Orleans. Yes even more then the mountain of fried seafood.
Plus when you garnish a plate with bacon, how can you go wrong?
Go eat, be merry Surrey's café and juice bar
