The Place:

1841 has a varied menu ranging for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner.  There is a kids menu and activities as well as gluten-free and vegetarian options.  There is a huge indoor dining area including booths as well as plenty of outdoor seating.

The Service:

The staff are very friendly and the service was quick.

The presentation:

The presentation was pretty average.  The sprinkling of parsley was too light, therefore not really adding to the aesthetics of the dish.

  • The Benedict and Montreal – they both tasted great and we gobbled them down like our lives depended on them.
  • The Eggs – were warm and runny.
  • The Bacon – was crisp and just the right amount.
  • The Salmon – was tasty.  I did feel that there could have been more, but considering the price of the dish, I can’t really moan.
  • The Hash browns – were hot and crunchy.
  • The Sausages – were hot and tasty.
  • The Hollandaise – pretty sure this was straight out of the bottle.
  • The Muffins – were tasty and crunchy.

Would we go again?

Yes, the food was hot, the service was fast and friendly
