HB and I had no leads on where to eat our last meal in Boston the following morning. I tried searching online but let’s just say it wasn’t easy to find brunch or a decent breakfast in the area on a Wednesday morning. So finally I found this place that boasted yummy breakfast and was walking distance, along the way to the bus terminal. Hooray!
Of course, when we got there, it was more “generic deli” that made breakfast – where I’d get a breakfast sandwich from, back in NY, but not really order breakfast to sit and stay. But we were there, so we ordered and sat down to eat.
HB ordered a plain omelet. Basically scrambled eggs. The guy was joking around with us and stuff, but in reality, he cooked painfully slowly, and the place was completely empty. I didn’t understand why it took so freaking long for him to even put her eggs on the griddle.
But my pancakes went down right away. I ordered the house special, sunny side up eggs, pancakes, sausage… I thought it was pretty cheap, until HB pointed out, accurately, that we were in just a regular deli type place. So it was priced about average.
HB’s plain omelet.
My entire platter
The pancakes – a little too dense and possibly overcooked
Home fries overcooked, soggy, sad messes with a really aggressive seasoning on the potatoes.
Eggs not fully cooked on top (the yolk is fine, the whites weren’t cooked through).
And these little discs of sausage were drier than I don’t know what… but horrible, overcooked messes. Sad face. I had to coat these in ketchup – normally I would just not eat them, but I knew we had a 4.5 hour bus ride ahead of us, and I wasn’t going to go down like that.
I guess it really is what can I expect from a place like this? but I had a lot of hope, after I read some great reviews in various places, and the guy cooking our food was so nice and friendly!
Yvo says: Sure, for a breakfast sandwich, a deli sandwich, whatever, but not for pancakes or sausage or anything more interesting. Eeesh. I could see why the place was completely empty. Ick.
