Ludlow Bromley Yacht Club offers a buffet brunch every other Sunday during the summer months. LBYC is best enjoyed on a beautiful summer morning where one can watch the speedy or pokey river traffic pass by, rolling the dock upon which the dining patio is built and savor the tastes and the pleasure of being rocked on a lazy summer morning. For a Maine ex-pat, there is no more ideal place to contemplate the meaning of life as we know it, or engage in long conversations with friends and family. Dining is best done at a very, very leisurely pace so one can sample a little bit of everything setup on the buffet line.
Coffee, self serve, is available with your meal which only costs $9.95 for whatever coffee and buffets items you wish to have. The coffee is setup on the corner of the bar and a large, brown thermal server. Cups, both the larger on the left and smaller ones on the right, along with sugar and creamer are all right there at the bar. If you feel like having a juice or alternate beverage, you can place your order while getting your coffee, but bring cash because they do not take anything else for payment!
I prefer to start with the regular breakfast items offered, including scrambled eggs, eggs scrambled with peppers and ham, hash browns, also grilled with peppers, bacon, goetta and lovely, plump breakfast sausage. Biscuits can be taken with butter, jam or sausage gravy and sweet Silver Dollar pancakes, with an urn of hot syrup, completes the hot bar options.
Just past the hot food table is the fruit table, loaded with my favorite pieces of the meal, fresh watermelon, pineapple and a yogurt mixture with blueberries, strawberries, raspberries and blackberries. Yum! While I am a big fan of watermelon, I do not care for cantelope or honeydew, so cannot comment on either, but both were available as well.
Next up is the table of pastries. These are the prewarpped muffins, little Danishes and the frozen cream puffs and chocolate eclairs one can buy in bulk from Sam’s Club. Just remember, you are here to enjoy the ambiance and the view… this is not fine dining, but the food is fine. It is the leisurely pace at which you can sit and enjoy the world going by for a few hours which makes it so attractive to me. Having spent many a summer day sitting by the water watching the watercraft, wildlife and clouds pass by, I totally appreciate having LBYC close by.
They also offer additonal dining options, including a popular Monday evening ‘grill your own’ steak night. Please visit their website for more details and directions: <a href=”http://ludlowbromleyyachtclub.com/.http://ludlowbromleyyachtclub.com/.</span>
