I had to run in and get some things at Zellers Brentwood the other morning and thought I'd try the breakfast special (2 eggs, choice of ham, sausage or bacon, hash browns, toast and refillable coffee) for $4.99. Wasn't expecting much, however was pleasantly surprised!
Eggs were cooked to perfection (soft poached - and I'm picky), sliced potato nice an crispy-brown, 3 generous portions of ham nicely done and whole grain bread which was of very good quality. Coffee wasn't gourmet, but certainly good enough to wash down breakfast.
Service was prompt and what I expect from the best breakfast joint - extremely efficient and unobtrusive (plus I got called 'honey' and 'sweetheart' lots).
It will be some time before I would venture to order crab eggs benedict at this place (like who does that? 'duh'), but after experiencing a well prepared, unpretentious breakfast, I look forward to trying a grilled chesse for lunch or maybe some mashed potato with cutlets and gravy kind of meal Mmmmmmmmm. I'll bet it will be solid - and definitely under 10 bucks.
Atmosphere is a bit bright for my taste (nowhere to really hide head down and read the paper), however adequately clean (no sticky ketchup bottles), with banquette seating plus they have a stack of newspapers that you can help yourself to.
