Walnut Bottom Dinner, Carlisle, PA

We stopped by for brunch this weekend, having a craving for eggs Benedict and having heard good things about it, both from people at church and online.

The hostess that seated us looked like she’d rather be anywhere else and only brought one breakfast menu. Our server appeared instantly and seemed miffed when we didn’t know what we wanted yet. She never introduced herself or smiled.

After perusing our options, we made our decisions, or at least, we knew what we wanted to ask about, but when out waitress returned, she was only interested in bringing us our drinks. When we finally had those, we asked about the french toast with fruit, real fruit or pie filling? Real fruit. We ordered a short stack and the eggs benedict we’d come for.

She returned to inform us that they were out of english muffins, might they serve it to us on toast? sure.

Food didn’t take very long to come after that, but it was a through disappointment. The egg was cooked well, but the sauce was thick and tasted strongly of onion powder, not inedible, but not right either. The french toast was swimming in strawberry pie filling that was sickeningly sweet, we couldn’t bear to finish it. We didn’t see our server once the food arrived.

We left feeling disappointed and don’t plan to return any time soon.
