Morgans – Restaurant Review | Condé Nast Traveler



Give us an overview.
For over a decade, Morgans has developed a loyal local following driven mostly by word-of-mouth, and it’s not hard to see why; it’s a casually elegant spot that offers a modest, well-priced menu. Its cozy environs, a sprawling 1930’s house that the owners have outfitted with with mod white chairs, paper lanterns, and polished concrete floors, plus a huge wrap-around porch with extra seating and communal tables, helps keep things feeling casual.
What was the crowd like?
Locals who come for the simple and satisfying food, and out-of-towners who’ve somehow caught wind of the legendary pancakes.
What do they have to drink?
A basic wine list, beer, and sangria are available.
Main event: the food. Give us the lowdown—especially what not to miss.
They call this “modern homestyle” cooking, which, depending on your mood, could mean a pulled pork sandwich on brioche, or beet and goat cheese tacos. The Frenchman’s sandwich is a cult favorite composed of arugula, ham, fried eggs, and Boursin cheese, served with a side of warm, seasoned potatoes. More traditional brunch items include mascarpone-and-raspberry-stuffed French toast, and the beloved pancakes, and waffles, which can be topped just about everything—think chicken, berries and cream, banana slices and caramel, or ice cream.
And how did you find the service?
It’s been around for so long, that it all runs smoothly.
What kind of meal are we coming for?
A family lunch, or a laid-back get together with friends.
