Do you feel tired in the morning? You definitely need to order this drink which is made in house. It’s sweet, but refreshing with mild coffee flavouring. This is a must-order drink whenever I am here.

Food:

Fried Chicken Benedict ($14.95)

The classic hollandaise was creamy topped with roasted corn salsa which was something new for me, but tasted very good. However, the well battered fried chicken breast was slightly overcooked making the meat a little drying to eat.

Chicken French Toast ($14.95)

I loved the buttermilk fried chicken, but they over did it with the tobasco honey which was drizzled on the pillowy brioche French toast making the dish too overly sweet. If I could control the amount of tobasco honey used by having it on the side, this dish would have won me over.

Chicken N’ Waffles ($13.95)

I liked the idea of having a sunny side egg as it made the dish stand out more visually.

The amount of house made pork gravy was insufficient to compensate this whole dish however. Also, the waffles’ texture was a bit rough and dry.

Pulled Pork Pancakes ($13.95)

The pancakes were massive with a very fluffy texture. The pulled pork was very tender and topped with a maple BBQ glaze that gave it that smoky flavouring. The downside to this dish was the amount of pickled cabbage given. It was way too much for someone like me who is not a big fan of it.

Recommend: Yes, if you love brunches with good value and proportion. Why not try something new? At times, I do find their food quality to be inconsistent, but it doesn’t bother me a whole lot. I suggest going right when it opens to avoid the often 1 hour long wait. There is a lot to choose from the menu so just go with your gut feeling because you’re likely to come back again to try something else!
