Big Pink: An $18 Breakfast? That's a Lot of Green!
|$12.50 omelet plate.|
Breakfast, for instance, brings a choice of 20 items, from waffles to breakfast burritos to matzoh brei. It also brings coffee in a cup the size of a soup bowl -- fresh, strong, hot, and refilled often ($3). Our waitress was friendly and efficient. When we pointed out that the spoon used to stir coffee had stuff stuck onto it, she replaced flatware and brew right away.
Well, that's the good news...

The omelet is priced $8.50 on the menu, which then reads: "Choice of fillings: Cheese, tomato, onion, spinach, peppers, brie, bacon, mushroom, avocado each item add 1.00." Guess it seems clear enough, but I missed that "1.00" at the end, somehow assuming that at least a couple of ingredients would come gratis. My fault for not reading properly, but $12.50 still seems steep for a cheese, mushroom, spinach and onion omelet. The large half-moon of staunchly cooked eggs was tasty, home fries alongside were lukewarm, and white toast was the only option we were given for bread.
