New Brunch Menu at The Kitchen at HMAC

Share Article

Brunch is back in the City of Harrisburg — in a big way.


When The Kitchen at HMAC opened in May of this year it added new lunch, dinner and brunch options for Midtown dwellers and visitors alike. Personally, I enjoy working remotely from here during the weekdays, when it’s quiet and I can score their incredible $8 lunch deal.

For instance, just yesterday, I ordered a cup of the Soup of the Day — Curried Celery Root — and a half kale salad. Delicious, healthy and filling — for just $8! 

Just last weekend The Kitchen unveiled a new brunch menu — available Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Featured items include, of course, Bloody Marys, plus Mimosas (traditional or apple cider) by the glass for $7 or the pitcher for $20.


The brunch menu is a combination of some of their new bar starters, like the artichoke and roasted pepper hummus, served with housemade rosemary sea salt tortilla chips ($7) and a savory-sweet baked brie ($12) topped with York apple chutney, caramelized red onion and brown butter.

Entrees start as simple as Eggs “Your Way” ($6) or a Greek Yogurt Breakfast Bowl ($8) topped with granola, honeycrisp apple, dried cranberry, goji berry and raw honey.

My husband had a hard time turning down the Chicken Fried Chicken ($14) served with smoked cheddar, applewood bacon and cracked pepper cream gravy, alongside collard greens, black-eyed peas and a buttermilk biscuit.

Instead, he opted for the Traditional Eggs Benedict ($9), while I ordered the Local Smoked Trout, served with applewood bacon, scallions, fried egg and dill horseradish cream on house-made English Muffin. Both are served with home fries — some of the best I’ve had at any brunch or diner, for that matter.

For even bigger appetites, try the Applewood Bacon-Wrapped Meatloaf Benedict ($12), combining two classics and topping them with bacon hollandaise. Don’t want the eggs? This baby comes as a sandwich too, topped with smoked gouda, roasted bell peppers and chipotle mayo on toasted ciabatta ($12).

A Smoked Salmon & Egg BLT ($12) is on my “next” list, featuring smoked salmon, fried egg, applewood bacon, braised kale and heirloom tomato on toasted sourdough, with some shallot-tarragon mayo for good measure.


Feeling the cool temperatures — and the Butternut Squash Casserole ($12) is sure to sooth your soul, complete with Camelot Valley Chèvre, smoked cheddar, caramelized onions and poached egg with a parmesan-Panko crust.

Of course, beer, wine and other cocktails also are available during brunch. Andy likes to start with a White Russian, and I washed down my brunch with a New Belgium Accumulation winter IPA.
