Brunch, Dogwood Cafe JP

The Dogwood Cafe in JP has instituted weekend brunch, 10-3, Sat and Sunday, with their regular dinner/pub menu afterwards. We went on Saturday and had delicious buttermilk blueberry pancakes, sides of sausage and bacon, a HUGE side of scrambled eggs, banana stuffed french toast, coffee, and juice. Fresh squeezed OJ was good. Tomato juice was warm, yech. Only complaints were SLOOOW service from a server who I know doesn't work there often during busy times, so-so coffee, and the warm tomato juice. Prices were reasonable. They have make your own omelets, eggs florentine/benedict, breakfast burritos, breakfast pizzas, and other similar things. Very tasty.

The DH went back on Sunday when company was in the mood for brunch and attested to the quality of the breakfast burrito and the breakfast pizza. Service was again sloow and disorganized, and coffee so-so.

If you can stand the nice but slow servers and aren't a coffee snob, it's a good alternative to Doyle's, IMHO. I'm somewhat of a regular so I will mention these few faults to them the next time I am in, but I would still go back for brunch if I wasn't in a rush. I would, however, have my coffee at home first.
