Old Nation has a House Special Pasty which changes every week. Now my husband wants to go every Sunday to see if this week’s pasty will top last week’s pasty. Just so you know, it does! Every time he orders the special gravy, because he says it is just that good. My husband is not one to go on about pastry crust, but when he realized I was going to write an article, words like warm, crispy, soft and decadent were being used to describe the crust. It almost sounded like a moment out of the movie when Harry met Sally.
The biscuits and gravy are out of this world with soft fluffy homemade biscuits and smooth white gravy with good chunks of sausage. The breakfast sandwich on a pretzel bun is perfect start to any day and particularly tasty after two days of working a beer festival. Our friend Amy was excited to find a gluten free/egg free option with the beef tips and a side of fruit.
You can always sample a flight with your brunch option, but Old Nation also has a great selection of beer-themed brunch drinks featuring their Cream Ale in both the Beer Mosa and the Michelada which features bloody Mary mix.
Next time you are looking for a brunch place, take the drive to Williamston and enjoy a breakfast someone else made. Don’t worry about eating alone, if no one else wants to join you, just come and dine at our table. My husband will have to try the pasty of the week, so we are bound to be there!
Last year I did a list of all the great places in the Lansing area to enjoy brunch at if you missed it. Here is a link with Old Nation and Harrison Roadhouse added at the bottom.
