REVIEW | Over Easy - loved the famous potato hash, but not so much the slow service

I walked by Over Easy Restaurant, a popular brunch spot in the U of T neighbourhood, many times in the past but never had a chance to eat there.  Finally, I headed over there for brunch recently.  

The location is great - right across the street from the ROM, University of Toronto and other shops & boutiques in Yorkville.  I was surprised at how many guests the restaurant could seat because it looked pretty small from the outside.  We were seated at the front by the windows, a bright and comfortable area.

However, since we were a bit "separated" from the rest of the dining area, it was hard to get the server's attention after we were seated.  We had around 10-15 minutes of just looking at the menu before we were asked if we wanted something to drink.

My friend got the English Breakfast ($10.99) with 2 eggs any style, sausage, sautéed mushrooms, grilled tomato, home fries, & toasted malt bread.  This is definitely a big breakfast with your protein, carbs and a bit of veggies.  Perfect when you're feeling extra hungry!

I got the Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict ($13.99), which is pretty much my brunch order anywhere I go.  It is served with home fries (pictured above), fries, salad or soup but I went with their famous home fries.  The smoked salmon was a bit too salty for my liking but the Hollandaise sauce and egg was good.  I also really enjoyed their home fries - very tasty!

Overall, I probably wouldn't go head here unless I was in the area.  Their portions are very generous and food is pretty good but they just lacked attentiveness from the servers.  I know Brunch is a busy seating time, but they could always have more servers during peak hours.  Maybe I'll just have to try something else on the menu next time!
