Brunch—like twilight, sporks, skorts, friends with benefits, and so many other things that make life worth living—is not quite one thing and not quite another. Celebrate everyone’s favorite mutant mealtime with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get a brunch for two at The Mansfield General Store in Mansfield Center (a $20 value).
Every Sunday, the culinary commanders at The Mansfield General Store line the shop’s wooden clapboard walls with classic brunch dishes. French toast serves as a crispy pedestal for scrambled eggs and bacon, which patrons can garnish with syrup and butter slung from dainty cut-glass dishes. Strawberry rivulets cut channels through fluffy pancake stacks and cornbread. Additionally, health-conscious diners can concoct a wholesome fruit, yogurt, and granola parfait. For dessert, forks pierce a crackly crust before sinking into the apple crisp’s gooey center.
Pewter accents, wicker baskets and black and white photos lend the small shop a rustic vibe, and live folk music invites dining companions to chew in syncopation. After brunch, sated diners can peruse the adjacent antique shop.
