we tried the over easy cafe on broadway for breakfast yesterday. the short and sweet is the place has potential, but needs to step it up a bit to be a true player.
i had the smoked trout omelete w/ carmelized red onions and cream cheese. the trout was incorporated into the eggs, which put it in too close proximity to the heat source and resulted in dry trout w/out much flavor. the omelete itself was also overcooked. the carmelized red onions tasted ok, but red onions turn kind of a green-grey color when carmelized that is unappealing. served w/ good bread and real butter. ok concept, but poorly executed.
my wife had the almond crusted french toast. it had a nice amount of cinnamon in it, and the thinly sliced almonds encrusting the exterior were nicely toasted for a sweet, tasty crust. the toast pieces were huge, which was also the downfall as they hadn't been soaked long enough for the custard to penetrate. a longer soak or thinner slices would have made it perfect.
prices weren't too bad at $17 (not including tip) for the meals plus coffee for my wife.
the restaurant is nice. small, airy place. nice metal working on the counter/decor gives a little bit of industrial feel.
at this point, i'd say they have enough potential to warrant a second visit (i'll skip the omelete offerings next time). i'd put them below the sunny point, early girl, stoney knob level, but above the mundane cracker barrel, moose cafe tier.
