If chocolate is involved, sign me up!

I love to eat and I love to try new foods. I enjoy eating in and out equally. I decorate cakes as a (paid) hobby. There is a 90% chance that I will order chicken in a restaurant. Forced tipping for substandard service (aka svc charge) is a BIG pet peeve.

Generous plates

This is a branch of a popular chain restaurant. I was here for brunch in January. I arrived to find a lineup right to the door. Luckily, when I said I was with a group, I didn’t have to wait and was led directly to my tablemates, who were already seated. However it is important to note that the restaurant does not take reservations and waiting in line is the norm.

The menu is vast and (as expected) heavy on the eggs. If you don’t eat eggs, you haven’t got much choice! Whatever you do decide to order, you will get a mountain of food. I don’t think anyone could finish their plates. Styrofoam containers are graciously supplied — so don’t be shy to ask for one.

Service was fast and friendly, even though the place was packed. It was a team effort to deliver plates to the table. As our group gradually grew, we squeezed together to fit in more chairs on the fly.

When I left, well past 1:00, the lineup had extended right out the door! So this is one popular place. If you can stand to wait, it’s worth it.

Fruit salad cup with toasted bagel and cream cheese. It doesn’t sound like much but it was fresh and tasty. The fruit was presented in an oversized martini glass and included blueberries, grapes, pineapple, and cantaloupe.

Group Service Charges
Evil dirty rotten service charges. I don't like them and I try to avoid places that slap them on to the bill. If the policy is upfront on the menu, it's more tolerable. But sometimes the charges sneak on, especially without merit.
