i have driven past this place so many times and always wanted to go in to get my favorite diner meal, grilled cheese, cheese fries and chocolate shake, but never have i done so. anyhow, this morning, i was killing time with my daughter, waiting for costco to open, and we decided to grab some breakfast there. i had the eggs benedict with a side of bacon (all hail bacon). it came with home fries as well. it wasn't the most amazing eggs bene that i have ever had (not sure where the best i have had is, but i do like the eggs juneau at chester's in berkeley... yeah, those are my favorite), but they were quite delicious. the real standout was the home fries. asked for them extra crispy and they satisfied my crispy-desire incredibly so.
anyhow, i looked to see if there were any threads here on CH about the joint and while i didn't find a dedicated topic, i did find many mentions of the place by our local guru, Frodnesor, and i was excited to read that it is a favorite spot of his... (he might not have said 'favorite' but he does speak highly of it. anyhow, i have not been there for dinner but i am excited to try it out. i like the idea of a french style bistro being hidden inside a diner. i would definitely like to hear about other peoples' opinions and experiences eating there.
it definitely is not your standard diner grease. probably not gonna have much luck there with my grilled cheese and cheese fries though... aw well.
