    Hi David! I just went to the location in PB yesterday and kind of felt similar overall. You were served soft man candy bacon? Ours was completely opposite, overcooked and CRUNCHY. Ick. I remember when it used to be fabulous. I’m ready to make my own and take over this niche haha! Since I have multiple rants for this place, there will be a future post on OSY as well. Hope your next post is on a happier note!

      Hi Lynn! Yeah, I was pretty disappointed in the bacon. I had such high hopes reading the description, haha, and I fully support you taking over the niche. Please submit future samples to Mary. 😀

      I’m bummed to hear that the PB location was off their game, as well. I was wondering if the original location would be the better of the bunch.

      I can’t wait to read your take on it! Thanks for commenting! 🙂

  2. I was here 2 summers ago with a gay boyfriend. we were originally going to eat at snooze but the line was too $#%@ long and it was also 90 degrees waiting out in the sun. Ugh. Plan B was Fig Tree Cafe. No waiting. I had something savory while he had some stuffed French toast. The food was all right. I haven’t been to the PB location but have been to the one in LIberty Station. That place seems pretty popular.

      Hey CC! Yeah, I agree about the food. It was just middle of the road – nothing really stood out to me…

      I have yet to try Snooze. Mary had a lot of good things to say about it, so I’ll have to hit it early one day to avoid the crazy lines.

      Thanks for the comment! 🙂

    this same thing happened to me, i went there last year and ordered the same sushi, expecting little pieces of sushi, like a roll. Disappointing. The man candy bacon was the same for my experience, and the portions are too large. Enjoyed this blog though.

      Hi Sabas! Yeah, I was pretty surprised at how large the portions were and I’m bummed that you had a bad experience, as well. Glad you enjoyed the post, though. 🙂

      Thanks for the comment!
