The Breakfast Joynt reportedly took over a location previously occupied by an offshoot of Taylor's. It seemed like Taylor's only lasted a few months, so, I went looking for the Breakfast Joynt, hoping it was still open. It was, and, a little after 8:00am on a Saturday, it seemed to be doing decent business.
I had the corned beef hash and eggs. I wouldn't get this again, because the hash was no better than canned. The preparation was very good, however. The eggs were perfectly fried, as ordered, and the hash browns were tasty. The food was delivered to my table, promptly, hot and fresh. Service was good, athough the waiter referred to me as "bud" and "bro"! They seemed to be overstaffed, maybe for the weekend breakfast rush that was about to come. The toast was actually a coarse grained whole wheat. The portion size was probably on the light side, which I consider a plus. I wasn't sure if biscuits and gravy might be included, due to the layout of the menu (they were not). I am trying to avoid the super large breakfast portions on a weekend, when I'm trying to relax, but, not fall asleep.
All in all, I'd say that I'd go back. There are other items on the menu that I'd like to try, and my breakfast was certainly better than what is offered by the chains. Has anybody had the Swedish pancakes with ligonberries or steel cut oatmeal?
