CLE food: Brunch at Touch Supper Club

A FAVOR? One fabulous CLE blogger – Allison at Green Dog Wine – has thrown down a “Cans for Comments” challenge. For every comment she gets on THIS POST, she will donate a can of food to the Cleveland Foodbank! I LOVED this idea, so I agreed to match her donation, as did WhyCLE gal! So go tell Allison how you plan to give back by commenting before 12 noon TODAY!

After the tease of a few courses of some amazing food at the last Emerging Chefs event, I knew it was time to make reservations at an Ohio City institution: Touch Supper Club.

From their opentable.com page: Touch Supper Club is the only venue in Cleveland to combine exquisite cuisine in a relaxed atmosphere with top-notch, world-class entertainment. For years, Touch has been known as a destination spot for music, having hosted some of the city’s most memorable parties and events. Now, with the addition of Chef Jeff Fisher, Touch’s reputation for its food is becoming the main attraction!

While we tried to get a pre-event sneak peak with Valentine’s Day reservations, those had to be cancelled. Instead we rescheduled with family members for Touch Supper Club’s infamous Sunday brunch:

We arrived at 11AM that Sunday. I was expected to be sat in the bar area, but we were wisked away to the back room that reminded me of a cozy home library: wood paneling, a fire burning in the fireplace, books lining the walls and comfy pillows lining the booths. The atmosphere had me at “good morning” and I was hooked. We were the only table sat in the back section – great for having a great conversation with family, but not so great for consistent service. More on this later…

The brunch menu had plenty to choose from, so here’s a look what we ordered:

The Touch Breakfast with two eggs, two pancakes, two sausages and tator tots:

This breakfast was so big, it was enjoyed by several family members.

The Breakfast Burrito with cheese, scrambled eggs, potato, peppers, onion, chicken, sour cream and salsa:

Hans LOVED the peppers in the hash browns, but wished the burrito had more of a kick. Don’t be fooled though – he was all over that wrap of brunch goodness.

The Veggie Omelet with tomato, green pepper, mushroom, onion and cheese:

HUGE. And I ate it all. I love me omelets that are the size of your head.

The Potato Pancakes with apple sauce and sour cream:

Mom went for the ethnic classic and was NOT disappointed.

While our food digested, we awaited the arrival of a coffee refill and our check. Unfortunately, our lone table placement in the back room became a bit of a negative when we lost our server. He eventually returned, apologizing perfusely, explaining how the front of the restaurant became very busy very quickly. (Or in other words, our poor boy got triple-sat.) Luckily, we were chill about the situation and all was good with a caffeine jump and a processed credit card.

LONG STORY SHORT: I love a good brunch and Touch Supper Club did not disappoint. Portion sizes were hearty enough to fill up my family at very reasonable prices. As we walked out, we were already making plans to return to try the make your own Bloody Mary bar. Count us in for another early day visit as well as some late night ones as well.
