You know when you wake up in the morning and you KNOW exactly what you want to eat for breakfast? Well for me on this particular Friday, it was pancakes. More specifically, blueberry pancakes. My husband and I were meeting family for breakfast at Joanie's. I haven't been here in years and they moved to a new location since my last visit. It's a larger space which always makes me happy to see a business doing well. We were running late so when we arrived, my mother and brother in law were seated already with coffee in hand. Our waiter noticed our arrival and asked if we wanted something to drink, both ordered coffee and water. I love it when staff members are aware of their surroundings and notice when customers arrive and serve immediately or within 2-3 minutes of their arrival.
After reviewing the menu and catching up with family, we placed our order --- blueberry pancakes (extra powdered sugar on the side), granola w/fresh fruit, poached eggs with hash browns and a veggie omelet.
Blueberry pancakes had fresh blueberries in them (not on top) drizzled lightly with powdered sugar. They served me 3 large pancakes. I finished 1/2 of the order. Rating -- 9/10
Granola w/fruit -- The portion was larger than I expected, fruit was fresh. I would opt for a smaller bowl. My brother in law is a healthy eater and finished 2/3 of the bowl. He also ordered 1 whole wheat pancake, which was pretty tasty. Again it was large, filling up the plate. Rating --- 7/10
Veggie Omelet -- Packed with veggies, hash browns were made well (not too crispy not undercooked). Good size portion Rating -- 7/10
Poached Eggs, Corn Beef Hash and Toast -- Eggs were poached medium, great portion of corn beef hash. Rating 8/10.
Overall, we love this place and would come here again. There are times that I wish we can place a half order because in all reality, who can eat that much food in the morning. I failed to ask for a smaller portion and generally I do. A lot of times, I'll ask for a kids portion and have them charge me the adult pricing because I know I won't eat it all and I don't want to be wasteful especially when we are traveling.
