This past weekend I went to MiKro. MiKro is a craft beer bar and bistro located in Hamden Connecticut. MiKro consists of an average size bar with a handful of tables. Initially when I walked into Mikro, first through a door, then through a curtain, I realized it was quite dark, which I was not expecting for a Sunday morning. However once I adjusted, I noticed it had a somewhat rustic and cozy atmosphere.
Every Sunday from 11:30 to 2 they have a special brunch menu. Items on this brunch menu include; French toast, hash, croque madame, chilaquiles, MiKro benedict, shrimp and grits, sausage biscuits, kale chop salad, and a MiKro burger. However this menu varies from week to week with some of it’s dishes.Read More

But in the sake of Christmas spirit, I tried anyways so I could give one to my Secret Santa recipient. Here's a recap of how the experience went:
