Smoked Salmon Benedict

Originally came here for a weekend breakfast, but it turned into lunch instead.  

The wait did not take long at all. However, once my boyfriend and I were seated, the server informed us that the chef was running behind on orders. With this in mind, we didn’t mind waiting for our order. With that said, we were surprised at how long it took for the Vanilla Latte ($4.50 for a 12oz) to arrive to our table. I can understand the food orders being backed up, but I would think the beverages shouldn’t take an incredibly long time to make, especially not coffee. It took at least 20 minutes for the Latte to arrive! The latte art was great, but it shouldn’t take that long. Ordered a plain coffee afterward, and this came out in just minutes.

The meal took about 45 minutes to reach our table. I had the Smoked Salmon Benedict, which includes poached egg and hollandaise on an English muffin with mixed greens (salad) on the side, $10. Country ham is an alternative option for the Benedict. The dressing on the salad was light and refreshing. The egg was cooked perfectly and marvelously oozed over the English muffin. The salmon wasn’t anything amazing. I enjoyed the Benedict dish overall, but it was not worth the long wait.

We shared a slice of Pumpkin Pie as well. It was about $4. There was a pleasantly strong pumpkin flavor in the filling. The thick crust wasn’t as hard as it looked, but I can’t quite decide whether I liked it or not.

This venue is very casual and hipster. It’s located downtown. There is an outdoor seating area available.

While I do appreciate being informed that our meals would be delayed, I do not think the food is worth the wait. I would only recommend this place if you’re planning on grabbing a quick cup of coffee or bakery item from the front (to go), which is handled separately from sit-down meals.
