Weekend Twenty-Nine: Locus Pocus, Abracadabra!

With Catie's friend Kara visiting from out of town, we headed off for a spot of brunch. Unfortunately, we were later than normal, and restaurants were getting crowded. With tales of a 45 minute wait at Crave, we decided to check out some other options. Locus to the rescue!

It was crowded, but we were seated quickly. The service was busier than normal, and was a bit on the slow side. Menus appeared, as did coffee, OJ, and fresh-baked bread, and we settled on making decisions. Kara and I each chose the omelette special ($13,) while Catie had the Classic with bacon, ($11.)

Now, an omelette with sausage inside may not seem too out-of-the-ordinary. But this was. The sausage was made with butter chicken! Tucked inside the egg of our omelettes was some cheese, tomato pieces, and a few slices of green onion to keep the sausage company. Pretty darn good, if I say so myself. The potatoes were done to a turn, and the fresh fruit pieces (watermelon, honeydew, canteloupe, and pineapple) were tasty.

Catie's bacon was crispy, in her preferred style, and the eggs over medium were not liquidy. This is good, because there's no toast to soak it up. She also enjoyed the potatoes.

The coffee was fresh, hot, and came with prompt refills. Catie says it is the best coffee of any of our brunching experiences. My OJ was as good as before. No surprises there.

Our third visit to Locus, and still consistently good. Perhaps we should have a moratorium on postings about Locus in the future. What do you think, dear readers? Do you want to hear about re-visits, or do you prefer all-new reviews, all the time? Comment with your preference!
