Surrey’s Café and Juice Bar (#208, 4/2/2012)
I usually don’t see a lot of difference in breakfast spots, just give me an omelet and I’m good to go, so not sure why people wait in line forever for some of these places. Having said that, this was the best breakfast stop I’ve had so far – but it was about 11 a.m. on a Monday, so the wait was about three minutes (even though this was great, I still wouldn’t wait in line for more than 20 minutes for it). I had a bacon and cheese omelet with some outstanding wheat toast and my friends all enjoyed their food as well. We also had the added bonus of NFL Hall of Famer Eddie George dropping in (it was the day of the NCAA Championship game). Surrey’s also has an uptown location on Magazine – also very good, high-quality food, but often a long wait – the uptown stop seems to have a bad fly infestation, so if that “bugs” you, maybe try the lower garden version.
