During our time in Cincinnati, we popped over to Northern Kentucky, which is connected to Cincinnati by a convenient bridge, and enjoyed a fantastic brunch at Coppin’s Restaurant inside Hotel Covington in Covington, KY. I’m going to cut to the chase and say that my husband and I have debated making the five hour drive (each way) to go back to Coppin’s Restaurant, because it’s that freaking delicious.
Everything we had here was absolutely stupendous. Now in case you think I lose my mind over every meal I write about, keep in mind that if I ever had a less than stellar experience, the food isn’t great, the servers are rude, or anything like that, I just don’t write about it. In fact, I probably write about half of the restaurants we visit, even after carefully researching them, reading reviews etc. So believe me when I say that this place was amazing.
My husband is a huge fan of bread pudding, and don’t tell anyone I said this, but I think he nearly cried when he took the first bite of Coppin’s Restaurant’s Breakfast Bread Pudding. He quickly ate the entire thing, ordered another to go, and he still talks about how delicious it was. Coming from a relatively snobby palate like his, is a huge compliment.
I had the Artisinal Yogurt and Seasonal Fruit, along with the egg and spinach dish shown above. I wasn’t expecting anything stellar from eggs, fruit, and yogurt, but there was something otherworldly about how divine both were, particularly the yogurt and fruit. I know the yogurt was handmade from a secret recipe, but I was very tempted to sneak into their kitchen ask them to teach me to make it myself – it was delightful!
Our server was a Kindly gentleman who was very attentive and never let our glasses get low, and ensured we didn’t have to wait for our food, drinks, or bill. I still have to wonder if he could read our minds to know exactly when to arrive with whatever it was we needed at the moment, without hovering or making us feel rushed. The service at Coppin’s Restaurant was simply superb, and yet another reason we hope to return to the area soon.
If ever you find yourself in Cincinnati or Northern Kentucky, I can’t recommend dining here enough. Hotel Covington is a gorgeous luxury hotel, and the food is on par with what you’d find at any five star eatery.
