Location: 1120 S. Michigan
In one word – Apathetic
Food – From the name, you shouldn’t be shocked to hear that eggs are the speciality here. Apparently this place has the best eggs benedict in the city, but I didn’t feel like assessing that claim. Instead I had the Santa Fe fritatta, which had bacon, avocado, peppers and three kinds of cheeses. In addition to the egg options, there are crepes, pancakes and french toast. The menu is vast…to the point where it’s overwhelming.
Drink – They have fresh squeezed juices here, including a strawberry/orange juice. If you’re looking for a morning spirit, it’s BYOB.
Service – Everything was fine and dandy until the end of the meal. The waiter dropped salsa on my friend and there was no compensation, just a “sorry.” This is a service industry, even if it was an accident, there needs to be some effort to remedy a situation like that. This place lost all marks for service with this incident.
Occasion – Come for the usual brunch occasions, but keep your party size small. While this place is pretty large, you will have to wait a bit for a table if you come at peak brunch time. It’s sceney here, so you’ll have a fun time people watching as you wait for your table.
Dress – Again, the typical brunch attire is acceptable.
Cost – About $20.
