I came here last weekend for some fancy brunch with Jess, Joyce & Cherry. I really like the atmosphere at all the O&B restaurants but I really like the bright and airiness of O&B Cafe Grill. I've never been to here for brunch so I didn't know what to expect and I can't say I was too impressed.

We started off with some fresh juices, Joyce, Cherry and I got the watermelon lychee juice which wasn't that bad but you could barely taste the watermelon but I still liked it. Jess got the raspberry basil green tea, I had a sip and you could really taste both raspberry and basil; really good.

Cherry got the O&B breakfast which is your typical two eggs (any style), potatoes and sausage/bacon kind of breakfast but this one comes with a cheddar scallion scone instead of toast. Only compliant was the price; $13.95 for this plate.

The rest of us got the eggs n' lox which is basically a smoked salmon eggs benedict on a cheddar scone instead of english muffin. I thought everything was perfectly cooked, the salmon wasn't fishy or overly salty and the potatoes were super crispy and well seasoned. Oh and just the right about of hollandaise sauce, so yummy!
Look how perfectly poached the eggs are!

As much as I like O&B I don't think I would go back for breakfast. I would definitely recommend Bluestone Bistro for their breakfast, they have AMAZING crab cakes eggs benedict (I crave for them).
