    The Apple Benedict is out of this world! Get a side of the Vermont maple syrup with it.

    A little disappointed in this place. My expectations were high coming from the same group as Keens. Also, No liquor.

    The omelette was decent. It is a pity that cheddar cheese is the only cheese option in the omelette section.

    Try any of their poached eggs dishes for breakfast - all are fantastic. The Spanish latte is delicious too. It's a latte with condensed milk and caramel instead of milk.

    La Colombe coffee supplanted George Howell brew, a couple of weeks ago, extending the cafe's tradition of a good cup.

    Heirloom tomato BLT with fried egg is a memorable version of a sandwich classic. Basil and superior bacon make the difference.

    Apple eggs Benedict was great but the Spanish latte blew my mind. Sounds weird, but I was expecting a simple latte--this was delicious. (They probably use orzata?) Plus, it comes in a small bowl. Yum.

    Food was ok, an omelette and cod tacos, but mild and neutral, not flavorful and exciting. Fast and helpful service.

    Notice the coffee tastes different? Spring 2012 brought George Howell Costa Rica coffee to E&C. A citrusy, clean, medium body cup has replaced syrupy Sumatra. It's pricey at $3.75, but still endless.

    Simple food, well prepared is the winning way of this downtown fixture. E&C gets a bum rap as omelet joint, but has long served inventive eats that sometimes surprise. Coffee is bottomless and good.

    Shrimp/bacon/pesto sandwich was yummy; coffee ice cream/fudge/raspberry dessert was bomb. Blackberry soda tastes like syrup and seltzer, not worth it. Heavenly wood crepe: nuthin to write home about

    Say you had the chance to combine eggs benedict, apples, french toast, and bacon. Would you? Sweet, savory. Pure deliciousness in a single bite, every bite. Is this real life?
