Hogan's Restaurant & Lounge50 Queens Street, Port Moody
Fantastic Breakfast Spot
Submitted Saturday, February 26, 2011 - 12:31am [Dine in]

Hogan's is by far the best breakfast experience I've had in the Tri-Cities. The menu is a refreshing change from the standard omelette/benny/waffle choices ... duck hash, anyone? And what a treat to have a side of herbed potato cakes instead of the usual boring hash browns!

The service has been excellent every time we've visited, and the ambiance is perfect for those of us who don't enjoy being crammed in elbow-to-elbow with strangers. Classy but not pretentious; a perfect place to enjoy a high quality breakfast without having to commute to metro Van.

Rosa's Cucina Italiana2331 Clarke Street, Port Moody

I suspect that people who rave about the food here have either never had truly excellent Italian food, or they're friends of the owner. My lasagna was greasy, to put it mildly, and my husband's gnocchi was curiously flavorless. The bread that was served prior to the meal was a joke ... it was clearly a French bread loaf from a grocery store. Maybe we caught them on a bad day, but there really shouldn't be any bad days in a restaurant, from a food perspective.

The service was pretty awful. Our server kept yukking it up with some customers who were obviously friends or family of hers, while we were left wondering for over an hour about when our food might appear. On the upside, our server did keep our drinks refilled. The place was super noisy and crowded, much more like a tiny cafeteria than a nice, cozy trattoria-type restaurant.

I usually don't mind giving a restaurant a second chance, but considering the bad service, atmosphere, and food I won't bother again with this joint again.

Not a Good Choice For Brunch
Submitted Sunday, January 24, 2010 - 5:26pm [Dine in]

Although I'm not a vegetarian, I try to limit my meat consumption. I was greatly surprised when I tried to order an egg bake dish minus the bacon and was told this was impossible because the egg bake was already assembled.

In other words, the egg dishes are not made fresh and to order; they're sitting around, waiting to be heated up when you order one. They're the type that can be made in large batches ahead of time and then warmed up as needed. (Judging by the lukewarm and uneven temperature of my food, I'd bet they nuke these pre-made brunches into a microwave.) I can see the restaurant getting away with this approach with some of their comfort food staples like soup and stew, but egg dishes? Laziness, pure and simple.

I ordered the only egg dish that was meat-free, a spinach, artichoke, and cheese mix. It was remarkably bland until I reached the center, where I uncovered some whole peppercorns. The only cheese that I could detect was a relatively small amount clumped in the middle. As for the spinach, I can only guess that the few scraggly green strips sprinkled on top were not herbs but were, in fact, the elusive vegetable.

The croutons and dressing in my side caesar salad were delicious, but hardly worth the time and money we spent. I'd rather take my chances with a greasy spoon where the food is cooked when I order it than return here.
