We were seated relatively quickly as the breakfast crowd was just clearing out and the lunch crowd didn't arrive yet. Sadly, we had missed the last of the cinnamon buns by a few minutes... a table a few down from us got the last of them. Drat! Ah well, the early birds get the cinnamon buns I guess. Still, I was excited for brunch!the FOOD After a bit of a wait, and finishing most of our drinks and catching up, our food came. My cousin's Sugarbowl Benny Poached egg looked amazing, and was served with warm back bacon on a thick slab of cornbread, fried crispy on outside and soft on inside potatoes, and a small bowl of housemade ketchup that had a little chiptole? zing.
...and completely drowned in a generous amount of rich thyme béchamel sauce. While quite tasty, with a nicely runny soft poached egg, he's a traditionalist, and thought the benny's would have been even better on a softly toasted english muffin.
A good hit of sauce, better quality meats, more cheese and waaay less diluting of the eggs would improve this dish. Eggs are cheap and plentiful!
