San Jose: Deluxe Eatery + Drinkery for breakfast

Eggg-celent Sunday breakfast. We were in town for a Sharks/ Ducks game, and needed an early breakfast before heading back to Orange County.  Thanks to reliable Yelp, I found this place opened at 7 am, and was located 15 minutes from the Hilton.

 

My party of 6 arrived at 7:30 and we had the place to ourselves. Our server Michael was terrific and engaging. He was spot on with his service, and refilled our drinks at the appropriate time.

The menu was quite reasonable.  Three of the girls ordered the Three Egg Breakfast, a bargain at $10. The breakfast came with 3 eggs (duh), potatoes, choice of breakfast meat (ie: sausage, bacon, ham) and toast. The portion of ham was generous, and the eggs were cooked perfectly.  Judy had the Biscuits and Gravy, which came with an egg (she ordered hard poached) and potatoes. Also, a bargain at $10

Stephen had the Shrimp and Grits ($11) and it was a decent size bowl of grits with a good serving of shrimp covered in a creole sauce. It was spicy!!

I had the chicken and waffles ($11). The waffle was a large one, filled the plate. The chicken was actually very tasty, but I was disappointed when the menu said 2 wings.. I thought it was 2 whole wings… but instead I got a disappointing one wing, but cut 1/2 (drumette and flapper). Disappointing. I ordered a side of grits, which was priced fair at $3.

Considering the entrees were priced fairly I found the coffee and tea prices were a bit steep at $3.50 each. Ouch!  I would recommend this place for someone looking for a breakfast/ brunch spot… but reconsider the chicken and waffles if you’re looking for something heartier.
