  1. I’ve only tried the Hillcrest location and since it was a weekday, early morning, it wasn’t crowded. My sis likes their pancakes but I think they are too sweet. They do have interesting combinations. I know Bert would like their Eggs Benedict offerings.

      Bert would probably also like their peanut butter pancake! I think it might be a PB & Chocolate pancake, I can’t remember, we got it the first time we went. The Del Mar location isn’t super far from where I work, been thinking lately about popping in for a late lunch there and hoping it isn’t crowded.

  2. Your description of the french toast pretty much makes me want to go stand outside of Snooze and wait for it to open right now.

    And the pork chili verde benedict!!! I would totally order that. Sounds amazing.

      Hahah! Damn, it was good french toast. I make this brown sugar syrup for pancakes instead of maple syrup that tasted kind of close to their sauce on top. I should probably document it for the blog someday… I wish I was eating that french toast for breakfast right now. Le sigh.

  3. We went here for Dennis’s birthday last april but gosh darn it, can’t remember too many details (didn’t take notes) so I’ve got these awesome pictures in a draft, waiting for a revisit! I think everything was a bit too sweet on my visit though. I loved the OMG french toast as a sample during taste of hillcrest but didn’t seem the same in full form. Me thinks a revisit is due anyway!

      Hi Lynn! I think if you only have pancakes and french toast the meal can seem way too sweet. I kind of think that whenever I only order those. I always want something savory and sweet with my breakfast so it balances out a little better. Gosh, I don’t remember trying any of their samples during Taste of Hillcrest! That’s a great sample to give out.
