Mom's in University Village

It was a one of those cold, rainy Seattle mornings. I had an errand to run in University Village, wanted breakfast, but had neither the time nor inclination to gather information about breakfast places in the area. So I took a total flyer and went to Mom's. Big mistake. The coffee was okay--not great, but okay. I ordered the combination #1 with the much trumpeted "thin pancakes," sausage, and eggs. The sausage, served in two misshapen patties, were cold and hard as rocks. Obviously, they had been precooked (correction, pre-overcooked) and left to sit someplace that didn't keep them warm. The vaunted thin pancakes, made with an egg batter, were gooey and tasteless. The eggs, ordered over-easy, were overcooked with one yolk broken. Such are the hazards of taking wild guesses on restaurants. Hey, it might of been a find. A "find" in University Village? Nah.
