So my daughter is really into breakfast places, she loves Mimo’s (no clue if I"m spelling that right and I really don’t care) and several others either I can’t recall or I simply chose not to. I’m a diner breakfast guy, I’ll sit at a counter or I’ll wait my 10 mins to be brought to my table by a guy named, Nikos-Gus-Manny or George. That is breakfast to me.
My daughter has wanted to come to The Buttered Biscuit for some time, as the matter of fact we probably had about 3 past attempts, attempts because I refused to wait the 30+ minutes required on each of those attempts. Well this weekend for whatever reason I got suckered into waiting the quoted 30 minutes, which really turned into 45 mins.
Again, I’m a diner breakfast guy, save me your foo-foo pancakes and french toasts I just want eggs, meat and potatoes. Much of the menu and items were of no interest to me, I simply wanted a pork roll egg and cheese with home-fries. I did see a family favorite on the menu, biscuits and country gravy so I decided to place an order of those as a breakfast appetizer. (I do pride myself on my white sausage gravy so this was going to be a good test)
The porkroll egg and cheese was good, no complaints. The potatoes were more a roasted potato vs. the thin sliced and griddle fried as a diner would have, which is my personal preference but nothing wrong with these. The biscuits were very good, as they should be when it’s in your name, but the sausage gravy I really didn’t care for. Way too much grease vs. milk based, I also couldn’t clearly define what grease they used for the base, sausage, bacon or some other combination. This really didn’t impress me.
My regular coffee tasted burnt, the decaf was good though.
There was an omelette ordered which was good as well as one of their benedict (with lox and spinach) which was a generous portion and well enjoyed. (by my daughter)
All in all if “breakfast places” are your thing, this will probably please you. I shall never return. lol Trust me, it’s me not them!!! The place obviously has one hell of a following…and I know I"m in the minority in my opinion but just reporting my experience. It wasn’t bad, but I sure as hell can’t see the draw of this (and many other breakfast places in our area) but as I said, these places just aren’t my thing to begin with.
