morning glory review

jill | May 2, 2005 11:00 AM

Out for brunch with my best g-friend on Saturday morning, we had both heard of this place and I ride by it frequently on my way home from work. It's quite cute, and pleasantly not busy at 9:30 on Saturday morning.
We both order the eggs, toast and rosti. She orders hers scrambled, with bacon and and OJ, I order mine over medium.
I should have started by saying I'm not much of a egg fan. Brunch is by far not my favorite meal, since I'm easily satisfied with a big bowl of cereal and fruit, which is easy and cheap to make at home. I like eggs, but not for breakfast.
The eggs arrive hot and fresh, but mine are over easy, the yolks runny which immediately grosses me out - I'm done with the eggs after one or two bites. The rosti could be much crispier and more well cooked, but at least they aren't greasy. The toast is a nice sesame bread, but my friend deems it stale - at least yesterday's bread if not a few days before. The redeeming points are the homemade ketchup and perhaps homemade jam. The coffee was good, it could be a little hotter but that's being very picky on my part.
Perhaps the most disappointing was the $2.50 charge each for the bacon and juice. The juice was fresh squeezed, but there was only at the most, 4 oz of it. The bacon, for an extra $2.50, was a mere 3 small, thin slices.

I'm not sure there will be a next time, but if it occurs, I will order the fruit, granola and yogurt. Someone at another table ordered it and it was generous and looked quite fresh. Or, I think I'll stop in on a weekday and try their fresh baked muffins.
