We are back to the Burbs and yes this is another review for Eggsclusive Cafe an above average spot that was worth another visit.
In spite of the fact that we were there early several people rolled up at opening and beat us in.
We were seated right away and Coffee’d Up. The Coffee is GOOD 8 The place was dimly lit with small spot lights. Modern with a cruise ship vibe. Uncarpeted floors 10 and Calypso Smooth Jazz music in the background. 6
I looked around the round Menu. It was full of all sorts of stuff on BOTH sides UGH! You know how I hate big menus.
Waffle Benedict…. Bourbon Bacon Chutney Spread on a Bacon Bit Waffle Poached Eggs and Maple Cream Glaze Served with House Potatoes.
This is a dish I haven’t seen before so of course I had to order it. The potatoes were like French Fry cubes. Crunchy and tasty. 7 The Maple Glaze is sweet and gooey. 7 The Bacon Chutney is also sweet but Bacony. The Eggs were just a tad over but thats better than underdone. 8 The waffle was run of the mill. Overall An interesting dish. 7
Cochinita Pibil Skillet…. Rotisserie Spiced Pork Grilled Pineapple Grilled Onions Pico de Gallo and Queso Fresco
Served with Pancakes
The Pork was very spicy and in chunk form like Alpo. The Eggs were cooked as I asked. I was surprised at the heat level. Most places won’t serve stuff this spicy. It tends to polarize your audience. I liked this dish. 7/8 For being brave enough to bring the heat 10
I’m pretty confidant that the Pancakes are from a mix. I’ve had the same Pancakes in a dozen places. Light Fluffy Vanilla-y. 7
Note: Both dishes had very thick Orange Slices. C’mon Gators say it with me! 1965 Called. They want their garnish back!
Cinna-Bomb French Toast….. Served with Cinnamon Butter
As usual my gripe is that this was simply Cinnamon Bread dunked it french toast goo for 1/2 a second and tossed on the flattop. It needs to SOAK for awhile so the egg mix has time to soak into the bread. It was good but NOT French Toast. I’m sure that it’s a hit just not up to my French Toast standards. The Butter made the dish 6
That wraps it up for Eggsclusive V2.0 A good suburban spot. Get over there. Bring a fat wallet. It’s more expensive than even tweet let’s eat or m.henry in the city.
As for ME I’m off to my next Adventure
