Sunday morning brunch, we’ve decided to try Panagio’s as it was relatively close and convenient. When we got there, the place was bigger than expected as the views from the outside made the restaurant look very tiny. It wasn’t busy at all and the mood was very relaxing and quaint, especially if you were on a date. All the other customers who were there were in pairs, it was a nice morning breakfast place that wasn’t too noisy and had lots of room for chit-chatting.
Panagio’s close at 4pm, so they do have a lunch section, including sandwiches, burgers, poutine and grilled cheese to name a few, plus a dessert section!
L ordered a usual breakfast dubbed the Usual Suspects consisting of 3 eggs, 3 sausages (with choice of bacon or ham as well), homefries, fruits and toast. I’ve decided to stray away from that path and try something new for once and got eggs benedict.
As it was my first time eating eggs benedict, I have to say that I do not enjoy it as much. The hollandaise sauce was too sweet for both our liking, and I’m not a fan of ham either.. sadly. They did give 5 eggs for my Eggs Benny and around 3 pieces of ham. I absolutely love their homefries as they were slightly crispy on the sides. The fruits were a joke compared to other breakfast places that offer fruits like Cora’s – as shown above, they had only given 1 slice of orange and cantaloupe for both our dishes.
There was only one waitress going around, and her name was Lisa. She was very nice and was very attentive as she was ready to fill our water glasses up as soon as they were low.
Our total came around $20 (including tax) – L‘s was about $7-8 whereas mine was about $10-11. However, they do not have a cash register(??) as I saw her going to the counter and pulling change out of a pouch instead of using an actual cash register… They do have a POS system as that was how Lisa did our orders. So, quite confused on that part.
From time to time, I will come back here for more food and I do enjoy the ambiance of the place, but personally, I will not go for their eggs benedict again. I guess I just don’t appreciate the taste of eggs benedict.
Till next time, ♥
