You've probably been hearing since you were a kid that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Most of us, myself included, usually rush out the door in the morning with little or no breakfast and are yet to burst into flames so who knows if that is actually true or not. However, what I can tell you is that when I do have time for it breakfast is maybe my favorite meal of the day. That delicious mixture of carbs and protein. It can be sweet, savory or both at once. Breakfast is a meal I love to eat at a restaurant if I can find a place that does it well. Unfortunately for LePeep, after today their name has been crossed off that list.
For those of you unaware LePeep is a medium to medium-small sized chain of sitdown restaurants specializing in breakfast and lunch items with the main focus on breakfast. I've always heard a lot of hype for it in the Indy area. Even with several locations the flow of customers ranges from steady to really busy. I had eaten there in pre-blog days and I had an omelet that was completely unmemorable. I decided it worthy of another shot. I wish I hadn't.
When I sat down I noticed that the service was snappy and that water was already placed at my table which I always view as a plus. I also enjoyed that when I ordered coffee a pot was placed at my table a la IHOP so I could dispense my own refills. The coffee was quite good, but it could have been served a little bit hotter. When it came to my meal I decided to go the savory route and order the Eggs Benedict which I had been craving for quite some time. I maintain that few things are better than a runny egg. You can see from the picture that it was indeed a traditional Eggs Benedict served with LePeep's trademarked "Peasant Potatoes". Unfortunately the dish was racked with seasoning and execution flaws.
The idea for this blog is to blog about everything I think about food and food culture. I'll tell you what I like to eat, where I like to eat it and if I thought it was good or if I thought it was crap. My thoughts about food could go anywhere.
