The Cottage Chestnut Hill

The Cottage in Chestnut Hill is located in The Street complex with lots of free parking.

This is how it looks from the front but much to my surprise there was no entrance here.

To find the entrance you have to trudge around the whole block since it's located in the back.

They were seriously busy for brunch on this sunny and warm Sunday but I got a table next to the big window in the bar. Not my smartest move since it was quite cold in this spot.

The dining room is absolutely lovely and really lives up to the name of the restaurant.

Brunch time and when I saw the Crab Cakes Benedict ($15) on the menu, I was sold. I really like this dish. It took quite a while for the food to arrive (close to 30 minutes) but it was really nice when it finally arrived. "Crabcakes Benedict. Crispy crab cakes, poached eggs, housemade hollandaise". The eggs were nicely poached even if one of them was a bit snotty but that's better than overcooked. The diminutive crab cakes were hiding under the eggs. The crispy part of the crabcake was absent but the crab itself was excellent and really tasty. The potatoes were cooked nicely and really well seasoned. A really nice brunch in a really excellent setting and the service was really good and friendly.
