Apalling Service, atmosphere ok, food not bad
IAnytime I have driven by this place on Melrose it has been full of people, so I decided to give it a go for brunch. Wish I hadn't. Arrived, the host looks homeless but was nonetheless friendly. We ordered brunch from our waiter, nothing too complex, just scrambled eggs with french toast and granola with yoghurt, strawberries and banana plus 2 smoothies. Smoothies arrived. We waited. A table beside us arrived, and ordered, from the SAME waiter, and their food arrived. We waited. The waiter didn't even acknowledge we were still waiting. Eventually I stood up, and asked the host where the food was. Our waiter came over 10 minutes later to advise that the kitchen was busy, but this didn't explain how the table beside us got their food...We ordered a couple of coffees while waiting for the food, they never came. Finally the food came. The eggs brunch was lovely it must be said. The granola didn't have enough yoghurt, and there were no strawberries and bananas. instead there were blueberries and raspberries. The waiter didn't acknowledge the fact that this wasn't on the menu and wasn't what I ordered. I dont even like blueberries. When I enquiried the waiter asked did i want a side of strawberries, when concurred he then brought out more blueberry and blackberries! finally we just got the check - i literally had to go and ask the host. This brunch should have taken 40 minutes tops. We finally left there over 2 hours after arriving. Shame because the food isn't too bad, the location is good, but the staff are just rubbish.
