The Morrie + a $50 Giveaway!

Disclosure: I received a free meal at The Morrie in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions expressed are my own.

Happy Tuesday Friends! I hope your week has been going well and you are looking forward to some fun events this week! Justin and I are hopping on a plane and heading to Florida tomorrow so I am looking forward to some warmer weather and a bit of relaxation!

For today's post, I wanted to share with you a little bit about The Morrie! The Morrie is a local Metro Detroit restaurant that I was able to try over the weekend! A group of bloggers and myself met up for brunch and I must say I was very impressed with the food.


I had never been to The Morrie before so I was very excited to try their food and check out the venue.  Upon my arrival, I was greeted by very friendly staff and an amazing atmosphere.  The venue is decked out with some awesome graffiti, Andy Warhol-esque artwork and tons of Vinyl records.  Since I love music, it was so much fun to look around at all of the vinyls they had on hand.  Plus it makes for a great backdrop for pictures!


They also had a stage in the back of the restaurant with some really neat graffiti.  They did not have any live music while we were there, but from their website, it looks as though they have shows at least every other night, if not nightly.  AND they hit a wide variety of genres of performers, so there is a lot to choose from.  I am thinking I might have to check out one of their shows next month.


For brunch, we all were given a choice from their breakfast menu.  They had a wide variety of options from the healthy egg bowl to the not-so-healthy chicken and waffles.  For my meal, I had the French Toast, thick-cut bacon and the sweet potato tater tots.  I also enjoyed a mimosa while I was there because what is brunch without a good mimosa?

My French Toast was so delicious! Not only was it thick cut, it was cooked on all side.  There is something so delicious about French Toast that is crunchy from all sides.  And their pairing with maple syrup made for a wonderful breakfast.


The bacon was your standard thick-cut bacon, so I enjoyed it very much.  But I have to say my favorite part of my meal was the sweet potato tater tots.  I have always been a huge fan of tater tots, so I was excited to see they offered them as a side.  I was even more excited to see they had a sweet potato option.  The tater tots were so good I ended up sharing them with everyone just so they could see how good they are.

From a price point, The Morrie falls on the pricier side (with some dishes hitting $20+), but I would 100% pay that much if I were to go there again.  Not only is the food wonderful, but the atmosphere and the service is excellent.  In fact, I'm going to see if my girlfriend wants to meet up there next month some time! We try to have brunch together once a month and this is a great half-way point for us both.
