The Cbus Food Bloggers were invited to experience brunch at Rusty Bucket and boy what a treat it was. It’s been a minute since I’ve had the chance to visit a Rusty Bucket and after this experience I was kicking myself for not eating here sooner. The most surprising thing I learned was that Rusty Bucket is part of the Cameron Mitchell family and since I have an intense love for all things Cameron Mitchell, it should have been no surprise I loved it.
Walking in, I’m greeted by donuts on the table (it’s like they knew I was coming) which immediately had my taste buds salivating. Seriously, you can never go wrong starting with warm cinnamon sugar donut holes and caramel sauce to dip them in.
Next up was the Yogurt Spill. Greek yogurt topped with fresh fruit, crispy granola and honey. If you’re feeling like you want to order everything – get this in the half size and start with something healthy.
Triple Decker Breakfast Sandwich – 3 cheese, fried egg, bacon, tomato, scallion and roasted garlic aioli on Texas toast served with fresh fruit. I loved this brunch so much that I thought it was the perfect place to return for Easter Brunch and my father ordered this and could not stop raving!
Want something even more hearty??? Go for the Breakfast Burrito – a flour tortilla stuffed with scrambled eggs, sausage, sauteed peppers & onions, pepper jack & cheddar cheese. Topped with ranchero sauce, sour cream and cilantro. Served with red skin breakfast potatoes.

Top 5 Fun Facts:
1. Super family friendly!!! They call it a grown up place that you can actually bring kids #truestory. There are so many brunch places I LOVE in town but they just aren’t kid-friendly so I love finding a spot that I can truly bring my babes without guilt of bothering everyone around us.
2. I wasn’t kidding when I said Rusty Bucket really loves kids. Just another one of their awesome programs is the Bucketeer Bookworm Program. For every five books finished, each Bucketeer Bookworm earns a complimentary Kid’s Meal.
3. Food is prepared from scratch daily. To prove how true this is – each weekend is a different omelet using all fresh ingredients. What a fun way for the chefs to play with the menu and a way to include their house made sauces and dressings.
4. They are serious about their cocktails. Juices are fresh-squeezed and bloody mixes are handmade. What a difference this makes in the taste of the cocktail.
5. Rusty Bucket loves to get involved with local charities, schools, non-profit groups and community organizations. and has various Dine ‘n Donate Days where 15% of the sales from the day will go towards a local charity. They also have many other programs like the ProStart Program which was developed to increase the quality and employability of today’s high school restaurant-management and culinary arts graduates by providing them with training related to important management and practical skills, as well as opportunities for career exploration and higher education.
