Brunch Report: Poste (Penn Quarter)

I took an out of town friend to Poste this afternoon for a leisurely Sunday brunch. Overall, it was very good... about a 7.5/10.
My DP had the brioche french toast and a side of sausage. she said the french toast was well done and the berry compote tasted very fresh and added a nice taste if not a bit overly sweet.
My soft boiled eggs were nice. The eggs were clearly very fresh and were prepared nice and fluffy. They were bordered by 4 baguette points which were a nice addition to make a little open faced sandwich with the eggs. It was topped with smoked salmon and American caviar. the smoked salmon was well prepared, very fresh, and with nice light peppery seasoning. A very refreshing and tasty addition to the eggs. The caviar was good, but perhaps a little salty. I was a bit dissappointed to see the caviar coming out of what looked like a commerical tin. We then had the donuts which were really the highlight of the meal. They were donut holes with lemon filling, rasberry filling, and chocolate ganache. They then were accompanied with sweet potato puree which was a nice addition to spruce up the dish but probably overkill.
the only problem is that my eggs came out without the salmon and caviar on it. then they quickly took it back and put it on at the pass and brought it back to me... by that time, it was a little cold. I told the manager and he comped my eggs so no complaints there.
I won't be running back but it was a nice brunch.
