checking up on Shopsins

I made my first visit to the new Shopsins today and was kind of disappointed. Granted it was prime-time Sunday brunch but the kids were running the whole show and not really able to cover all of that new space.

It took forever just to get our order taken. My pumpkin peanut yogurt smoothie was kind of mismatched flavor combo that might have worked better had I ordered a milk base instead of yogurt. The egg burrito "big plate" I ordered was covered in still-frozen, whole cranberries(I thought the menu mentioned a compote or sauce). The cranberries didn't add anything to the dish anyway. The burrito was ok, kind of good in a sloppy way. The plate was encircled with coconut silver dollar sized pancakes that saved the meal though. Kenny's still a master of pancakes and french toast.

Has anyone else gone on weekdays lately and had better results?
