Good Morning Gators!
Thanks to Dennis and Trinity Foster for the Recommendation!
I arrived a couple of minutes before opening or so I thought. Yelp said 7 but the door said 6:30. Anyway I took my outside shot and went in.
I was seated right away and promptly forgotten about. I sat there for 8 minutes. Finally a server realised that I had not been waited on. Coffee was ordered and delivered. Carafe on the table. 10 Coffee Eh 6 They DID have Splenda though. I put in an order for one of those giant baked Cinnamon Apple Pancakes right away since they take almost 1/2 an hour.
The interior of the place is like a really dark Swiss Chalet with pictures of Chickens. 7 The place has Carpet 2 The music is contemporary pop. 7 I like the fireplace. The lighting is awful for photos.
The menu is pretty big but average. I didn’t find anything that really jumped out at me.
OK lets get going
Greek Frittata……………………………… Three egg open faced omelette with ham, asparagus, artichokes, sun-dried tomatoes and mushrooms. Topped with basil pesto and Jack cheese.
The meal came with Grits. They were tasteless. Grits, Water, Salt. 5 The Frittata was decent. 7
I upgraded the standard pancakes to Blueberry Crunch Pancakes although that’s NOT what I got. They had Apples in them. They were raw and gooey in the middle. The part that was cooked was OK 4
Apple Cinnamon Pancake…………. Freshly sliced Granny Smith apples with caramelized cinnamon-sugar.
It was here already. Hot Sweet Cinnamony Appley. Scrumptious. 8 I tried it with and without syrup. I liked it with butter and without the syrup. If you go here get one of these.
Ham and Swiss Benedict………….. Toasted croissant, ham, mushrooms and swiss cheese topped with two poached eggs and housemade hollandaise sauce.
One egg was poached hard One was just a bit overcooked 4 The Hollandaise tasted like chicken gravy with lemon. It was Thick and gooey. 4 The filling was OK Shaved Ham shaved Mushrooms Swiss Cheese. A bit salty. The Hashbrowns were overcooked and dry. An overall 6 The Hollandaise killed this dish.
Well Gators That’s it. Not the best visit. Certainly not the worst. As most of my regulars know, I don’t post negative reviews. This one just squeaked by. The food was a mixed bag and the service was sub par. The Cinnamon Apple Pancake was the saving grace.
I’m off to my next adventure!
