Nellie Rose is a new breakfast and breakfast and lunch place that has opened in mid December up on Route 18 in Whitman where Andy’s seafood has been.
Here is the buzz from the Hockomock Swamp Supper club community-mostly postive and there are some growing pains
Went to Nellie Rose in Whitman for brunch the other day, because who doesn’t want to try out the new breakfast place in town? I ordered Nellie’s favorite breakfast. This includes 2 eggs, home fries or hash browns, and toast along with their homemade corned beef hash ($7.99). I am sort of obsessed with good corned beef hash, so I had to try it. I was not disappointed! Amazing, and definitely not from a can! The prices on most menu items are decent, portions are good, and the order came up pretty quick. Service was nice, Heather took great care of me.
After paying the bill, I decided to take a bowl of clam chowder home with me for my hubby, and ordered it to go. It was close to closing time, and they had run out, so they told me it would be a few minutes. I was bummed to find out it wasn’t made in house, but from frozen in a bag. And for the price ($5.99) I got about 6.5oz of soup, which was very disappointing as well. Overall, a great place to grab breakfast or lunch, but maybe skip the soup
Finally tried out Nellie Rose breakfast today on Rt. 18 in Whitman. It deserves the rave reviews it has received. Friendly wait staff, great food and reasonable prices. Ain’t nothing fancy but it sure was satisfying. The pictures don’t do the meal justice. I had to take them quickly ‘cuz my friend saw my camera and said, ” Are you going to Swampie the meal ?”
And a new phrase was born.
My wife and I went out to do our food shopping this morning and wanted to try the newest breakfast spot in Whitman, The Nellie Rose Restaurant. We walked in and immediately felt at home with the decor and friendly staff. We were sat immediately and greeted with a small bowl of assorted fresh breakfast breads (the pistachio bread is out of this world!). They offer standard breakfast fare (eggs, pancakes, waffles) but everything is homemade and scratch made. We asked our waitress about the house made bagels (yep, that’s a thing here) and she told us to make sure we microwave them because they don’t use preservatives so they are a little hard. What great service! My wife ordered the Eggs Benedict (which is her go to breakfast dish) and I went with the meat lovers omelet (bacon, sausage, ham, linguica and chourico…OH MY). The omelet was packed with meat and cheese and the perfect hearty meal to start my deal. We both ordered our shredded hash browns well done and we were not disappointed at all! My wife loved her Eggs Benedict and we grabbed a pair of Asiago cheese bagels to go for tomorrows breakfast. We will definitely be back and would highly recommend checking this place out if you’re in the area
My mom and I went to Nellie Rose this morning in Whitman.We were greeted by a friendly staff. Our waitress was Tiffany. She was pleasant and sweet. She brought us a small bowl of donuts/cookies/muffin pieces. I LOVED that idea!! An appetizer for breakfast!!!! There is an impressive case of goodies to go also! I opted for the cheese omelette with home fries and toast. Okay, before I continue, I have to say that when I seen the toast, I was overjoyed! Why? Because I go to Reids in Brockton and they have the best toast, east of the Mississippi! I know what you all are thinking: “toast is toast!” Um. NO!! I can’t explain it but it’s big and soft and toasty! Okay, so getting to the omelette: I have to say that I wasn’t impressed with it. The reason? It was very dry. Almost overdone, if you will.The home fries had a wonderful texture, BUT the seasonings they use in them ruins them.
The manager asked how everything was and my mom told her about the home fries and she graciously offered my mom to try the hash brown. mom LOVED it! I didn’t try it but it looked incredible. Perfectly done and not a bit of grease on the plate. In all fairness, I was feeling ill before I arrived so my taste may have been off. I will try it again though. I usually have a policy that I will not try a place that is newly opened for at least six months but kind of broke that. The decor and service are wonderful! I’ve enclosed a picture of the chairs that someone else had talked about earlier.
Saturday & Sunday 5:30 AM – 1:00 PM Monday-Friday 5:30 AM – 2:00 PM
