This is a famous local cafe that Guy Fiori visited, but we happened upon this joint after searching for brunch places in the U-District. I don’t know why this place has never been on my radar, but the line was 30 minutes at noon on Sunday. You’ll have to wait outside, so dress warmly.
Prince Charming had the pinata benedict – it did not disappoint. Creamy hollandaise sauce smothered a meaty smoked pulled pork. I didn’t taste any chipotle in the sause, but maybe I didn’t enough enough of it. I had the Denver Omelet. The egg was fluffy and thick, with what seemed like chedder cheese sauce inside. It’s filling! Both plates came with a very healthly side of hashbrowns.
The cafe is actually greek, so next time, I’ll try the Greek hobo and the smokey the salmon. The chinese pankcake (pancake with ham and egg mixed in) is also a speciality. Next time this place will be on our list of brunch places!
SUMMARYOVERALL: happily ever after
HIGHLIGHTS: comfort food with a greek twist
FOOTNOTES: sit at the kitchen bar for a view of the action; it is busy so expect to wait outside for 30 minutes and 20 minutes for your food after you’ve ordered
