Although not heralded for their traditional cuisine, the British do know how to make a mean breakfast: think massive plates of broiled tomatoes, eggs, juicy sausages, seasoned beans and cups of tea. For a similar experience in Springfield, Missouri, head to Farmers Gastropub.
Chef and co-owner Andy Hampshire has stacked the brunch menu with British classics including a version of a full English breakfast as well as sharp Cheddar-chive scones, bangers, and fish and chips. Hampshire’s creativity can be seen in items like the grilled short rib sandwich with tender organic short ribs, pickles, onions and local blue cheese and the smoked trout and shrimp mappas with spicy curry, coconut milk, rice pilaf, tomatoes, chiles and fresh cilantro.
