Though I had little appetite that Friday morning, I had promised myself that I'd patronize Plenty on Bell for breakfast. The sidewalk had been torn up with noisy and dusty street construction nearly blocking the entrance. I figured they could use some more business.

Drip coffee, $3, was organic Greenstar that brews up rich and intensely flavored without being heavy or bitter. I appreciated the pitcher of foamy, warm half-and-half served alongside.

Jesper's Short Rib Hash, $11.95, featured a few chunks of braised short ribs tossed with crispy onions, brown and crusty home fried potatoes, and herbs. The white on my over-easy egg order was overdone and frazzled. The overall impression was kind of dry and components that did not knit together though each element tasted fine on its own despite the drab appearance of the plate. The horseradish cream perked up the flavor, and the runny egg yolk (singular, as the second yolk was hard) added much needed moisture. The sourdough toast was parched and hard as well. The rescue was asking for and adding some strawberry jam.

Plenty on Bell has a cute patio that I would have used but for needing to escape the construction noises. I'd probably be willing to eat here again, but I would not order eggs nor toast.
