2.5 stars (out of 5)
Met my friends here for our usual Monday morning breakfast. We all had various takes on eggs and the food was fine. Highlights included the extra large eggs (x2), tasty “home fries” with crisp fried onions, and my friend’s chicken sausages to which she gave the thumbs up.
The coffee was plentiful but tasteless. (Both coffee and hot water for tea came in thermal carafes. A nice touch, but I’m not sure it justified a cost of 2.50…especially for the tea! We’ve had plenty of bottomless cups of coffee for a buck and a half in this town.)
On to the vibe. Think hotel “coffee shop”. This branch of the chain is actually attached to the Hotel Victoria and you have to go through the lobby to get to it. It’s behind reception and has no outside windows. I found it a bit gloomy and lifeless due to this fact.
Oh, and after reviewing 50 breakfast places in the last year, this is the only one that served coffee in PLASTIC MUGS. Uggh. (The tea came in a ceramic cup and saucer.)
This place won’t appear on my “best of” list.
