Morning Glory -- Why the Hype?

Susan H | Nov 25, 2003 09:32 AM

Had breakfast this morning at the much-touted Morning Glory Diner (11th and Catherine or thereabouts). I ordered a frittata with roasted peppers, mushrooms, and cheddar, and Ed ordered the tofu scramble. After a very long wait (especially for a diner), I got a very large, very puffy souffle-like thing that was about 99% egg, with some mediocre cheese melted on top and a few mushrooms and peppers burned into the bottom. The potatoes were large unseasoned chunks of potato (maybe that's why they put hot sauce on the table). There was a little cup of cooked apple chunks. And a very good "biscuit" that looked like crumb cake but tasted like an excellent biscuit. I ate very little of any of this (except the biscuit) -- at least the waiter agreed that there were insufficient "ingredients" and took it off the bill. Ed's tofu scramble was interesting (sauteed lettuce, peppers (very few) and tomatoes with chunks of soft tofu and lots of curry seasoning), with the same potatoes, apples, and biscuit. The tea is Lipton and not quite hot enough. Ed says the coffee is OK. It's $7 for the frittata and $6 for the tofu. I'm not going back. Brunch at Judy's Cafe is 10 times better.
