What I ate:
Crab Cake Benedict
  • 6.5/10
  • When I look at a benedict the first thing I always notice is the runniness of the poached eggs. In this case the eggs were overdone and were barely even runny which was disappointing
  • The Dungeness crab cakes fell apart too easily and lacked flavour and depth – could barely taste the crab, maybe even tasted sandy
  • The bun holding the crab cake and the poached eggs was very unappealing and hard to cut
  • The parmesan breakfast potatoes were the best part of the dish – the parmesan flavour was strong and there was a good amount of potatoes I just wished they could have been crispier
Waffle Breakfast Sandwich
  • 6/10
  • The waffle was not a waffle it was like a bun that had waffle markings on it and equally as hard to cut as the crab cake benedict
  • the cheese had an interesting texture and the egg and ham were okay
  • but overall a disappointing dish
Things to Improve on: The textures of the breads, better ingredients
Summary: Great service but disappointing food.
