breakfast at GRUB report

I've wanted to try Grub for breakfast for months now, but they stop serving at 10:30 on weekdays so I would always just miss it. All reviews seem to rave about their lunches, but I haven't heard much about breakfast. So... off we went.

The breakfast menu is kind of limited, but they have the "make your own omelette" thing going on, which is always nice. Good items like Gruyere cheese, nice thick bacon, etc. make it a little above the standard fare.

The coffee was excellent, very strong and full of flavor.

My husband ordered the egg sandwich, which had a lovely fluffy scrambled egg mixed with a nice cheddar. Served on a croissant of modest size, it was just right. I ordered the berry pancakes. They mention oats on the menu, but these were just regular fluffy cakes with blueberries inside. The edges were wonderfully buttery and crisp, my husband kept reaching over to my plate and breaking off bits of it. It came with boysenberry syrup and had some kind of raspberry butter on it, but I couldn't actually taste the flavored butter, it just looked kind of cool.

We got there around 10AM and there were no customers, although a few stragglers walked in after a little while. We never felt rushed, although the cell phone chatter around us got a little annoying (that's what we get for eating in the middle of post-production-ville.) Service was good and friendly.

We got out of there for $20, incl. tax and tip.

If I had one qualm, it would be that there were some members of the catering staff in the kitchen arguing loudly throughout the entire meal. We heard gossip we probably shouldn't have heard and a lot of whining and complaining about the work. The voices carried like they were right next to us. Otherwise, it's a sweet little place and I can't wait to try lunch there, that menu was very tempting!
