Albany Bistro's $4.99 Schnitzel & egg brunch with $1.50 mimosa

As with recent visits, quite the deal.

It comes with their delicous bread and butter, no sad sliced bagged bread here.

The breaksfast was pretily plated on a long regtangular white plate. Two nice fried eggs, cubed, browned fresh potatoes garnised with sliced scallion. The thin breaded pork cutlet wasn't heavy like schnitzel can sometimes be. I have been spoiled by the version at Chopin in Walnut Creek which was memorable and this didn't compare. I don't eat a lot of schnitzel, but this was the second best version I've had locally.

The $1.50 mimosa was actually good and better than versions I've had for $5- $6 bucks.

They get a lot of gruops on Sunday and one group was heavy on the fancy coffees which slowed service.

One of the children at another table ordered the $5.95 hamburger with sweet onion, pickles, lettuce, tomato, green goddess sauce, and fries. It was a big burger that looked like it was on a house-made bun ... but of the normal hamburger bun type, so fancy baguette.

Very good coffee too.

The only disappointment was the Krapfen, a German donut. It was microwaved to heat it and turned rock hard. Skip it.

All in all a nice experience. For about $11 I had coffee, mimosa, donut, fresh baked bread, eggs, schnitzel and potatoes in a pretty restuarnt served by a professional staff.
