I met up with my book club the other morning at the End of the Line in Fountain Square. They said they had a good weekend breakfast/brunch menu and naturally, I was intrigued. I was going to try and be on the healthy side, but really wanted to try the breakfast burrito ($5.95 for just the burrito, no potatoes), so that’s what I had instead.
The burrito was straightforward—nothing fancy going on here, but it was really good. It was a large flour tortilla wrapped around 2 scrambled eggs, my choice of meat (I went with sausage on the server’s recommendation), cheddar cheese and pico de gallo. On the side they gave you sour cream and guacamole. It hit the spot though—there was enough eggs and cheese with just the right amount of flavor from the sausage and seasoning from the pico. I really liked the way the entire burrito was grilled so the tortilla was hot and crisp. I am not a fan of a tortilla that just comes straight out of a bag and remains room temp.
I liked having the guac and the sour cream on the side to dip into although the guac was a bit bland. I’m guessing they’re not making it there.
One person at our table had a burger that looked pretty darn delicious (you don’t have to order breakfast, which I appreciate) and a side of homemade white cheddar mac and cheese that looked decadent. I’m going to have to go back to try that.
All in all, it was a good, solid breakfast—it was a great place for our group of 6-7 because we could get right in without a crazy wait (weekend breakfast in this town can be ridiculous). The service was a bit on the slow side—I am going to venture to guess because we had a larger group. We didn’t mind because we were talking about our book (duh) but keep it in mind if you’re in a hurry.
It’s been a long time since I have been here—and I think it had a different name the last time I was there. What about you guys? Have you been?
