Got brunch there Sun. (corner of Harvard & Brighton Ave.) and was pleasantly surprised after always hearing that 6 Burner, which had been in the same spot, kind of sucked. Was looking for a step above greasy spoon without spending over $10 and it was perfect. Got a fritatta w/ caramelized onions, cheddar and roasted peppers w/ home fries for $6.50. My friend wanted crabcakes benedict which they were out of so he just got bacon and eggs for $6.95. They serve a bread basket w/ decent coffecake and little mediocre croissants. Supposedly they serve huge portions of Italian food at nite. It was perfect for what I was looking for in brunch that day.

Here's to hoping I can eat my way thru New Orleans without gaining 50 lbs. See you next week.
