The interior is brightly lit with a lot of light wood decor having wood bench booths and tiny wood stools lining the window bar seats. They have their homemade ketchup and spicy ketchup on every table as well as other sauces you can add to your meal.
2 EGGS + DOUBLE EVERYTHING:
With a build it yourself style menu, we chose the portobello mushrooms with aioli & fresh arugula, no topping and 2 eggs atop the truffle lemons hashbrowns as the base. The mushrooms were big and thick cut which would be hard to eat on your classic english muffin but was fine with the potatoes. The eggs were cooked perfectly with fully runny yolks yet solid whites. The hash was deceiving as it's just potato wedges and not proper grated hashbrowns, however they did not disappoint. They came out a little dark, making us believe they would be overdone and super crispy but they were actually really soft and perfectly cooked. We were pleasantly surprised and the combo of all the ingredients with the yolk from the eggs made for the perfect comfort meal.
Having 3 sizes, we opted for the 12 oz but later regretted not ordering the pitcher as they are so easy to drink! They weren't very strong, lacking much alcohol flavour however mimosas are always good and 1 glass is never enough.
