Emily Brought Coffee.  6  Splenda was added. The menu was pretty extensive. I gave it a study then made some decisions.

#1

The Pomegranate…………………………………………………………………..
Two poached eggs, English muffin halves with ham off the bone and asparagus. Topped with our delicious hollandaise sauce

The Hollandaise was decent. Could use a bit more citrus.  7  Asparagus was tender crisp  8   Ham was tasty and clovey   8  House made American Fries. Good.   8   Eggs cooked nicely  8   Muffin well toasted  9  Overall a Good Dish.    8

Gyros Skillet

Sauteed Onions, Tomatoes, Feta cheese, More American Fries, Gyros off the spit. Eggs  Pancakes

Pancakes. Not bad. As per my normal tasting method I tore off a piece and popped it in my mouth Fluffy Vanilla-ee  7   and as often the case the syrup brings down the pancakes.  RANT warning.  Why bother to serve good pancakes with sub par syrup? END Rant.   Syrup   5

Eggs not done. Sunny Eggs should be White and Yellow. Not White Yellow and Clear.   4   Gyros were spicy and salty   8   Feta Cheese Cubes   7   A good dish.   7   would have been an  8  if the eggs were cooked properly. I would get this again.

Bavarian Cream Filled French Toast……………………………………………….
Three pieces topped with fresh fruit or glazed fruit topping

Deep Fried and filled with stuff similar to the stuff they use in Chocolate Eclairs  This was unlike anything that I’ve had before  7/8   On a side note I took the leftovers home and ate it cold from the fridge. I enjoyed it cold as well.
