Raleigh Farmer's Market Restaurant

For some idiotic reason I stopped by this place for breakfast on Saturday. I've had a couple poor meals here, but never breakfast. The thought of a restaurant adjacent to a large farmer's market is very appealing in theory, but this operation is an embarrassment.

First thing to hit our table were biscuits, served with packaged margarine spread and little plastic cups of smuckers jelly. I'm looking across the street at countless fruit and vegetable farms and local dairies, yet I get hydrogenated vegetable spread and industrial jelly. The rest of the food was poor, with pre-fab hollandaise, over-fried sausage links, over-poached eggs, run of the mill syrup, instant grits, bland home fries, etc. The most disappointing part of eating here is the complete lack of produce from the farmers market, which sits 100 yards away. I hate to blast a restaurant, but those in charge should be highlighting local products in this scenario. They also need to find someone who can cook.
