Restaurant Review- Finch's
Our server was a bit deaf (maybe she eats too often at Cafe Luna), so it was a bit of work to order. Then I noted that every customer yells, so it was on us.
The food was on the grill as soon as it was ordered, except for the mysterious gravy, or grits, that came from the back "If she's still back there." Weird. The prices are what you would expect for a place like this. How about a breakfast, eggs, taters, toast and meat for under $4? Damn! We were looking for the normal, giant breakfast to share, but they all looked to be portioned for one, so we went ahead and ordered two. It wise, I have found, to have pancakes for a back up plan when you order biscuits and gravy, hash or other localized "mythical food" that is usually a modern adaptation of what was once a basic dish. I ordered SOS, or chipped beef on toast. Shit on a Shingle.
Oh, the pancakes were real good, the eggs were eggs and the coffee was weak. I am not sure I would go back, but I sure enjoyed going to Finch's.
