"coffee is Boyd's"

The food at eggnest is great, but the coffee is TERRIBLE. It's not so much that it's bad tasting in particular, it's just extremely watery.

I recently went to a Shari's with family and was underwhelmed by the portions compared to the price. I mean my father had a Belgium waffle (1 waffle) and I had some potato pancakes which were between $6.50 and $7 I think. The kids meals came with much more stuff. And my meal was supposed have "and served with cinnamon spiced apples." No fracking apples came. I wasn't in any mood to complain but I know I should have. I hate complaining to servers because I know how it feels to be at the front lines and take all the complaints when you had nothing to do with it.

Oh, and on the online menu it says that the kids Jolly Roger Cakes come with "Three pancakes and one bacon strip." And there is a picture of the meal with a bacon strip but the server said that that was an separate item and not part of the meal. Fuckers (not the server just the management and misleading advertising).

I live close to the Everett Patty's and love the Sunday buffet breakfast even at $8 and some cents. For a few times a year it beats all fucking chains around.

@2, you ate at Shari's and had BAD FOOD? I'm shocked. Shocked, I tell you.

I'll never forget the experience I had in a Shari's in, I dunno, Mt. Vernon? Someplace between there and Bellingham. The place was absolutely filthy -- the patterned carpet looked like glue, and was tacky as you walked across it. While we waited for our food and ate, the whole time, well over fifteen minutes, another waitress stood by the waitstand and attempted to pick up a single coffee creamer that had fallen to the floor with one of those long-handled dustpans. THE WHOLE TIME. Chipping at it and chipping at it. I came very close to going into full-on Fnarf mode, shouting "FOR FUCK'S SAKE PICK IT UP YOU STUPID CUNT" and running over and picking it up for her. Our food was cold and smelled of moldering corpses, and, afterwards, horrible diarrhea. Shari's.

There's a Patty's Eggnest in Arlington now too. Haven't been.

Is there, or did there used to be, a Patty's Eggnest on Greenwood and about 83rd? I think I was underwhelmed, but I may have been expecting something great after waiting so long.

That seems to be the way with some breakfast restaurants - people will wait a long fucking time for decent, but not great, breakfast. Maybe the bacon and sausage makes up for the always-average pancakes and eggs.

Wrong! Northgate had a short-lived incarnation of the Varsity Inn in the complex that used to house Tony Roma's. It was terrible though, so who cares.

@4 The one on Greenwood is Pete's Eggnest. I always assumed they were related but I guess not. Maybe somebody here knows the scoop. There is a Patty's not far away on Holman Rd in the QFC shopping center though.

@1This is an interesting little (audio) story about watery coffee.

@ 6, thanks for the info! Yeah, I saw that Holman Road address too. I wondered if they had moved (but obviously not since it's a different restaurant...)

Pete's Eggnest used to be Patty's Eggnest, and was the first one in the chain. She sold most of the restaurants to a guy named Chin, who kept the name, but sold the Greenwood one to a guy named Pete, who changed it. They're siblings, in effect.
