Half Day Cafe is one of those breakfast places. You know the ones-- breakfast, lunch and brunch. This one's only open Monday through Saturday-- closed Sunday. I think they're missing some prime opportunities being closed Sunday, but it works for them.
I got the egg strata with bacon, gorgonzola, egg bread, rosemary and orange zest. It came out looking and smelling delicious-- crispy and golden with a waft of rosemary. When I took my first bite, I tasted no gorgonzola, no rosemary, and little bacon. All I tasted was orange zest. I totally get the idea they were going for, but there is far too much orange zest. I've definitely decided that I do not like orange with my eggs. It's not often that rosemary, a pretty pungent herb, is overwhelmed by anything. Gorgonzola is a fairly strong cheese, and I couldn't taste it at all. I definitely wouldn't order it again. The tiny little lemon-poppyseed muffin was cute, but I didn't taste any lemon in the bite I took. The potatoes were undercooked (to the point of being raw in some spots) and overly seasoned with rosemary. The individual pots are a great idea, and I definitely get what they're going for, but the seasoning was just terribly off.
