We started off with coffee and tea. Unfortunately, their only choices for hot tea are green tea or Lipton. I haven’t come to really expect much more, though, from American restaurants. Still, it’s a cup of tea, and you can’t complain. Geoff said the coffee was good. They serve Kona coffee, of course. Hawaii is the only state that grows it’s own coffee, and they’re pretty proud of it.
Geoff ordered the eggs benedict, which you can only get on weekends and holidays. The potatoes on the side were wonderfully crispy. The eggs benedict itself was great, complete with gooey egg yolk action. BCD uses Ka Lei eggs, which are local, so they’re super fresh.
I ordered the Ani’s Cinnamon French Toast Sandwich, which is not actually a sandwich at all. It does give you a bit of everything, though. You get two eggs cooked to your liking, two sausages, two strips of bacon and two pieces of cinnamon bread french toast which is crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside, and loaded with cinnamon awesomeness. I was so happy!
What made me especially happy, though, was getting the check. I expected to be pushing $40, but even after tax and tip, it was only $30. That’s so affordable for a great breakfast. Big City Diner has so much to love. We’ll keep coming back again and again. It’s got that neighborhood feel that we just adore.
If you haven’t been to Big City Diner for breakfast, be sure to stop in. You won’t be disappointed.
