    Sooooo I ordered the chicken and waffles…. It was disappointing. The chicken tasted old/ like left overs Or It was frozen chicken that they reheated and not well. The food was barely warm. The waffle was ok but the blueberry butter that came with it was delish. The presentation was lovely. I ordered the morir soñedo drink- a drink that I grew up on. It’s a science to this drink. If done right, it should taste like a creamsicle. To much of either ingredient will ruin the drink. Sadly, they didn’t get it this right either. The service was great and our server was attentive, sweet and pleasant. I may have caught them on a off day, so I will try this establishment again. Hope they do better.

    It’s nice to see the old post house revived! Decor and menu go hand in hand, so expect a lot of lavender and lemon items. Drinks are light and inviting. I would suggest starting your meal with the enBlume as it is very light and refreshing— probably works as a pallets cleanser as well. Food could have used some salt and pepper, but the presentation really made the meal. I appreciate the consistency as well— I ordered the same dish as another party and it looked the same.

    The food was good and the presentation was cute but it was hard to enjoy my meal while being in between swatting flies and a dripping vent. I asked if the flowers, which attracted all these flies could be move away and I was told unfortunately not due to it being apart of the ambiance and I notify a staff and a manager about the leak and their response was, "thank you for letting me know." I didn't wait too long for my food, it was just that the food wasn't brought out at once, for example my meal came first then 5 minutes later my guest, then my sides, and then a part of my guest meal finally came out (eggs). My guest and I came from out of state and wanted to try this brunch spot out. So overall the place was cute and the people did generally seem like good people it's just my experience was not the best and I probably wouldn't recommend anyone based on it.

    The restaurant is on the smaller side wouldn’t bring a large party , only bar seating heads up. Food was great, I had the short ribs, girlfriend had the chicken and waffles. I’d say this is more of an eating place rather eating + drinking. Small selection of cocktails. I would return to try some other food menu items for sure. Hopefully they add some bottomless mimosas or create the cocktails as a bit larger drinks for the price. Not sure why a lot of reviews complained and said they waited forever for food or drinks? Both came out rather fast on a Saturday afternoon. Service was completely fine.

    They had good food and good service. Only down side was no regular beverages and food takes a little long and they forget items. Also the cook came out with a bag of frozen home fries made by Idaho potato and dropped them in the fryer.

    Impromptu day trips are always the best. In this case we headed to Delaware for brunch at Blume. Reservations are required for this small quaint diner style restaurant. It has all the Instagram worthy backdrops as it highlights Black art/history. They didn’t spare any decor as each wall (including restroom) is adorned in a colorful array of wall covering, floral arrangements, brass sconces and chandelier. The food presentation is that of a four star restaurant and the prices are reasonable. Parking in the rear is extremely small and tight so I recommend parking across the street at Foreman Mills. I give this place 4/5 stars and that is only because of the staff shortage today. Things happen….I get it….and I will be back. 😊 our food order included: avocado toast w/arugula, cherry tomatoes, pomegranate seeds and a savory sauce. Peach cobbler French toast and smothered chicken & biscuits

    I don’t usually write a review if I had a bad experience. But this was so bad, I will give just my thoughts. Bill for food and drink $54.00. Service charge 18% $9.72. Automatic tip $15.93. Total $79.65. So $25.65 added to bill. This was for breakfast for 2. Cheapest plastic fork and knife you can find. A paper napkin that was about 4 inches square. Cold home fries. Etc. and a long wait when we were 2 of the only four customers in the restaurant. Don’t think I ever had that bad an experience at that price ever before. And watch out. Cancel your reservation in less than 48 hours before and they will charge you $25.00 PER PERSON for not giving enough notice. When I was there at 10 AM to 10:45 AM only 4 seats used out of at least 30. I wish them luck with return customers.

    The only negative I have is the plastic spork. I'm not opposed to disposal utensils but I should have a knife fork and spoon available upon request. I ordered Banana Foster French Toast (which was delicious by the way) and only had a spork that was in issued in a plastic wrapper. Just not a good look for the price point. It really was a turn off.

    Overall not what we expected. The food was pretty good and the presentation is great, but definitely over priced for the portion sizes. The cocktails are also definitely not worth the cost. We were also surprised to find only bar seating available, and were not made aware of the 18% gratuity automatically added to the bill. Basically, their social media accounts are not an accurate representation of what the experience really is like.

    Pros- Food was really good! Cons- it took us a while to get acknowledged even when the staff kept walking by. The drinks were not worth the price. One of the drinks tasted like perfume. They add an 18% gratuity fee but don’t let you know. We only realized it after our receipt was emailed to us. We tipped on top of that so our waitress ended up making a good 50% tip. It would have been nice if she had told us that the tip was included already, but instead she knowingly took the extra cash.

    Overall price was not worth it, I feel like I payed way too much for what was received. My husbands home fries seemed like they were old, hard, and redipped in grease multiple times. My husband ordered a starter and an entree. Both of his items came out, and he completed them before my entree arrived. Lobster Mac n cheese had about 2 shavings of lobster on top, and none throughout the dish. It tasted like velvetta shells and cheese. I unfortunately will not recommend or return to this restaurant.

    The customer service and food was not that great. I waited a really long time for my drinks and for a waiter to take my order, approximately 30 mins. The item I wanted from the menu I was told would take 35-40 minutes to prepare. The food I actually ordered was not good, the presentation was horrible compared to what was displayed on their social media. The Mimosa was warm, my eggs were runny and the cheese was not melted on the eggs. I would not recommend this place for brunch.

    I was pleased overall with this restaurant. On the positive, the food was delicious and the Mimosa was strong (contrary to other comments about the drinks). One thing to note is that this is not your typical restaurant. There are no tables, only counters. On the negative, although I had reservations, I still had to wait about 20 minutes. Also, for the chicken and waffles, they serve only dark meat. Noone really eats dark meat, especially for chicken and waffles.

    Went for impromptu brunch on Sunday, made reservations, seated pretty quickly. After that sadly the experience went downhill from there, which was so disappointing as I was so excited for this place! To start, our Order not taken for almost 30 minutes, not the end of the world, but then took another 25 minutes for my fiancé to get her drink, an hour for mine, and my son never received his juice even after reminding after an hour. We were told “kitchen was backed up” from a large party, but took 90 minutes to get our appetizer (deviled eggs). At that point we respectfully asked to square up our bill when it didn’t appear out entrees were close to being ready and neared the 2 hour mark. We struggled to understand why when 3 other parties around us had come, gotten their food, and left, and we only ordered 3 dishes and the appetizer, and only received the latter. The waitress was very kind to me when I asked and she only charged for the appetizer, comped the drinks which gives me some hope for a future visit if we decide to give it a shot. That said we hope to try again in the future, not sure if it’s just a one day bad kitchen day or like that often. One other party of 4 near us had their kitchen ticket lost and had a similarly long wait, just not sure how long exactly.

    The staff are extremely personable and polite. The ambiance is one of the most instagramable scenes I have seen in a while. The food is not only perfectly presentable, but has a great taste to match. My favorite appetizer is the lobster Mac and cheese and my favorite entree is a tie between the salmon and banana foster bun toast. The drinks are unique and well balanced. I would recommend a reservation for sure. This spot is great for a date night, birthday celebration or even just for everyday pleasures. You won’t be disappointed.

    Food was delicious, it takes a little while to get it but it’s worth the wait. If you sit closer to the bathroom there is a bit of a cold draft. The staff was very attentive, they wore gloves to serve the food (nice touch during this pandemic). This place has the potential to be a local fav.

    The Pros- The food was delicious! We had the sage chicken & biscuits, the shrimp & grits and the mussels all fantastic. The ambiance was nice with great R&B music and black art on the walls. The Cons- Stay away from the cocktails. I paid $17 for a drink that tasted like juice. It looked beautiful but was a complete waste of money with 0 alcohol although I was told there was liquor in the drink. Our waiter added a lobster Mac and cheese to our bill which we didn’t order which may have been a simple oversight and was removed however when asked about the 18% service charge our waiter told us that wasn’t his tip and that it went to the “house” which made absolutely no sense. I always tip a minimum of 20% so I intended on adding more to the tip but the waiter clearly lied trying to get more money and that makes me wonder if that additional dish added to our bill was really a mistake. Overall- I would definitely eat the food again but only for takeout.

    The food was just ok in my opinion. Not bad but nothing to rave about. One thing I didn’t like was there was a 18% gratuity automatically applied to the bill. I didn’t notice it but the waitress still took my tip knowing it was already included. I didn’t like that at all. Also the place does not have a full bar with liquor options just so you know. The ambience is really cute and quaint.

    Decided to check out Blume for Saturday brunch with my crew after seeing it highlighted on social media. We were not disappointed..our host Nicholas was pleasant from start to finish of our meal. Everything was cooked to order and the menu was very eclectic and food was cooked to perfection. Chicken perfectly crunchy ..French toast made with bread that was moist with a slight crunch. My 12 year old who is a "bruncher" says "this place is tough" . I'm already planning my next visit.
