Blogger Reviews of Eastern Standard

  • alone with a cupcake. on Nov 14, 2013

    What's worth the trip and the price every time, though, is the Butterscotch Bread Pudding. It's warm, the consistency is to perfection, and it's sweet in all the right places. The Butterscotch makes it more interesting than the usual bread pudding, and the ice cream is adds a whole other dimension. I guarantee you'll see one at every other table.

  • Coco M.So over Eastern Standard. If you have nowhere else to go in kenmore -- it will do. Never had a decent meal or cocktail here. It tries to be too trendy while sacrificing quality.
