More Than Denny's But Worth The Money!

Biscuits and Gravy, Scrambled Eggs, and Country Potatoes

If you haven't been to the Broken Egg Cafe yet, I'm sorry.  You are missing out if you haven't eaten here yet. Josh and I discovered this place one Sunday morning when we were looking for somewhere different to have breakfast. We went inside and the line was 20 deep. I have said this before and it will continue to ring true, if there are that many people waiting to eat somewhere, you know it's good. We left and decided to go through what we thought was the drive-thru. You actually have to place your order in advance and then come pick it up, but they went ahead and let us order at the window considering our ignorance. I ordered the Sun Rise Tacos, and Josh ordered the pancakes and sausage. It is normally around $30, after tip for us both to eat there, but it is well worth the money. I also order fresh fruit with my order because their fruit is delicious. The last time I got breakfast I ordered the biscuits and gravy, as you can see above, and they did not disappoint either. I have had a few different items from here and loved every one of them. Great breakfast place, go try it!!

California Sushi Wasn't Good OR Bad...

Bahamas Roll

Top - Crunchy Roll
Bottom - Honey Moon Rol

Oklahoma Tulsa Roll

I really don't like when this happens. I go out for lunch, and the food is not great, but it isn't bad either. When I eat out somewhere, I expect fireworks in my mouth, always. Is that too much too ask? I was very excited to try California Sushi, after seeing it highly rated on UrbanSpoon and Yelp. The service was fantastic, but we were the only table in the entire restaurant, so if it wasn't then there would have been something terribly wrong. We ordered 4 rolls, the Bahamas roll, the Crunchy roll, the Honey Moon roll, and the Oklahoma Tulsa roll. The highlight of the meal was definitely the Honey Moon roll, which was our favorite roll out of the four. The spicy tuna that topped it was of great quality, maybe even the best quality tuna I have had. But that was the best thing about the meal, the Bahamas roll was something I could have made at home in about 5 minutes, the Oklahoma Tulsa roll was alright but only came with 5 pieces, definitely not worth the $14.95 we paid for it. The Crunchy roll was good, but nothing I haven't had before. Finally, the Honey Moon roll was delicious, we both fought over this one. It was 2 pieces of deep-fried shrimp, cream cheese and avocado, topped with spicy tuna, along with crunch flakes and multiple sauces. It was very good and worth the $14.95. All in all, we had 2 large rolls, and 2 small rolls and left paying $60(with tip.) I was disappointed in the cost of the rolls, considering they didn't hold a candle to Haruno or even Sushi House, where you can get 2 huge rolls for around $15 AND a free Fuji roll. Oh well, you live and you learn, and I promised to blog about the good, the bad, and the delicious so here you go--the not so good.
