Homegrown has several locations the one we dined at was in Wichita. We even had the pleasure of meeting one of the owners Jon Rolph. HomeGrown serves cage-free eggs, free squeeze juice, Yoder sausage and bacon, homemade Pop-Tarts, in-house roasted turkey, reverie espresso and Wichita-roasted coffee all on their made in Wichita tables.
Where do you start when describing your culinary experience at HomeGrown I would say it takes you back. It takes you back to the memories that you had or imagine those memories of being cared about from the inside out. The sun shines through the plantation shuttered porch window with their imperfect chipped paint as you sit waiting for grandma’s coffee cake. She places it in front of you. You allow the smell to tickle your nose. You close your eyes then you pick up the caramel and dripped it on top. Your fork pushes through it, and you draw it into your mouth you don’t immediately bite down because you want to savour each bite.
You may not have had a grandma with a front porch or one that made coffee cake but if you go to HomeGrown you will feel like family. The positive be kind and do for others message is not only written on the wall but it lives in each person that works there. You will have more than a culinary experience, HomeGrown will remind you that kindness counts and you will feel cared for.
I just want everyone to know prior to writing this review we were given a lot of food to sample. I would not order all this food at one time again. I can tell you every dish they brought out I would order again. The menu was packed with options for everyone. I happily tasted food and the only fighting was which one was better we all had our favorites but there wasn’t one item that didn’t meet the high standard HomeGrown has for their food and that I have for what I feed my family.
Without further ado.
They are known for their pop -tarts we have the lemon one willed with a tart lemon curd and a frosting with the zest. It was my husband’s favorite. The original version was a brown sugar and cinnamon flavor combination. The pop-tarts were a hit and we considered taking some home. I imagine a cup of Wichita coffee and one of these would be an exceptionally good morning.
The HomeGrown Coffee Cake was my obvious favorite. It features a Buttermilk Caramel Sauce. It was good we asked if they mailed them. We weren’t kidding. It was just home on a plate.
We had a traditional benedict that featured a shoulder of bacon, poached eggs and fresh hollandaise sauce on a lightly toasted English Muffin with a plentiful side of with potatoes. The eggs were cooked perfectly. Who doesn’t like an egg that runs down a perfectly toasted English Muffin kissed with hollandaise sauce?
Yum! I Love Biscuits & Gravy
HomeGrown original biscuits topped with country gravy, loaded with Yoder Sausage and served with roasted rosemary potatoes & two cage-free eggs.
Fresh avocado mash, grape tomatoes, crushed red peppers & drizzle of olive oil, with 2 cage-free eggs• & fresh fruit. If you asked me if I would have ordered this on my own, the answer is no until I ate it now this is all I want to eat. It was marvelous!
2 pancakes with fun sprinkled in. Because sprinkles are for winners! You can imagine my kids were over the moon for these moist and filling pancake.
I understand why they call this freshly squeezed carrot, apple, pineapple & fresh ginger juice the sunrise because it is the start of a good day. The flavors are delightful.
Last but not Lattes my husband drank an Almond Latte and he loved being able to have a latte with almond milk because most places do not offer all the options that HomeGrown does.
Flavors: Vanilla, Hazelnut, Caramel
Milks: Soy, Almond. Skim, Whole
HomeGrown is able to meet your dietary needs. If I was to have one breakfast again in Kansas HomeGrown I choose you!
HomeGrown is the hug from inside out.
