Hello! TasteBud A here! Saturday evening TasteBud B and I were walking around E. Ohio Street after stopping at Ritas Italian Ice. On our way around the block we came across Bistro To Go. The next morning (the day before Easter) we decided to stop in and give it a try before our venture to the Zoo.
We were greeted with a smile by the front end cashier and we informed her that we were first time visitors. They promptly showed us breakfast and lunch features. Tastebud B and I both decided on breakfast.
For our order we opted to keep it simple and inexpensive and we each went with a $5 breakfast combo. We also took advantage of a beautiful morning and decided to sit in the courtyard.
TasteBud A: Scrambled Eggs with Cheese, Wheat Toast, Sausage
TasteBud B: Sugar Pecan Maple French Toast, Sausage & Fresh Fruit
TasteBud A review:
I was looking for something simple and easy. I figured that most places can’t screw up what I ordered. The sausage was very good and had great flavor. They gave me a nice thick slice of wheat toast which came already buttered. The only thing that I would have done was asked if there was a cheese selection for my scrambled eggs. They sprinkled the eggs with a generic cheese that turned hard as it cold. Other than that it was good! Excellent coffee as well! Even though I enjoyed my breakfast, I believe that Tastebud B made a better choice!
TasteBud B review:
I feel like I had the better menu selection and seeing my food hit the plate proved my case. I received two hearty pieces of french toast with a sugar maple coating and pecans nestled on top. The flavor in this dish packed a real punch. The sweetness of the french toast was a nice balance against the tasteful breakfast sausage. Whereas the sugar maple syrup was heavy, the side of fresh fruit added to the plate with a refreshing, lighter mouthful.
One thought on “A Must Go!”
Others have reviewed this place as being much like a cafeteria. While I did ask and there are a number of items they sell that they don't make, I believe I will return to try something from their lunch/dinner selection.
