A couple weeks ago my friends and I stopped by 9th Avenue Grill for some breakfast before our day of photowalking.
The menu had pretty standard breakfast items and the prices were very reasonable. For my breakfast I decided to try the Cheese Omelette And …, yup, that was the name of the dish, with the dot dot dot.
It was a 3 cheese omelete with bacon, sausages, pancakes and potatoes. My omelete was pretty flat with cheese folded inside. There were 3 cheeses, but the only one I could really taste was cheddar. I had a feeling it might be a tex mex mix. It was not bad.
The sausage and bacon were pretty good, but I was most disappointed by the pancakes, especially when I just had Rhizome Cafe‘s a day before. The pancakes were were just flat, dry, and didn’t have much flavor at all. They actually reminded me of pancake mix.
A friend ordered the 9th Avenue Big Breakfast with French toast. This was just a classic breakfast with 2 eggs, bacon, sausage, potato and choice of pancakes or French toast. This dish was again pretty normal, but the french toast were just a tad bland.
Perhaps the most flavorful dish we had was the Veggie Hash. It was scrambled eggs with peppers, mushrooms, onions, tomatoes with Monterey Jack cheese. This was a nice hash, it had all the nice flavors from all the vegetables.
Overall, I wasn’t too impressed with their breakfast food. The savory part was all right, but the pancakes and french toasts just weren’t good enough.
