While a lot of people enjoy having their breakfast out on weekends, there comes the dilemma that most restaurants do not serve their breakfast menus after midday. However, a new cosy place in Fifth Settlement’s The Spot mall is reshaping the weekend’s breakfast rules, allowing people to have it whenever they want.
Angie’s Place is an all-day breakfast and brunch restaurant. The spot serves a breakfast menu every day from 9:00 am until 10:00 pm, giving visitors the opportunity to have the early weekend breakfast experience at any given time or day.
With only a few tables in the indoor area and a large, wide outdoor space, and the quiet, soft music, white walls, and rose patterned chairs, the restaurant instantly gives a feeling of relaxation and serenity.
Despite its cosiness when empty, the small, narrow indoor space might not be so relaxing when it is filled with people. The teens hub might get extra noisy when it is completely occupied, which is usually in the afternoons. Thus, having your brunch in the warmth of the sun is recommended for most people who are looking for some peace of mind.
Now to their meals: we started with the breakfast burrito, and chicken sticks coated with pretzels.
The burrito was a mix of scrambled eggs, hash brown, sausage, cheese, red beans, and sour cream wrapped in a white tortilla.
While the expectation was for it to be roasted, the burrito was the farthest from being crunchy. Its taste was dominated by onions. Despite having several components that we expected to balance each other out and create a unique taste in one bite, the sandwich was a bit disappointing, as the taste of the sausage almost faded away beneath the strong taste of crunchy onions and sour cream.
The cheese was not as plentiful as it should have been. The expectations for how the other ingredients would make it taste were much higher than what the served plate fulfilled.
As for the garnish/dip, we ordered the babaghanoug. It was not exactly what you would want it to be. It did not exactly taste like babaghanoug, though it had most of the necessary ingredients, but it left more or less a sour aftertaste in your mouth.
As for the chicken sticks coated with pretzels, they were served chopped, small, and crunchy. Crunchy from the outside and tender from the inside, the taste of the pretzels was quite pronounced. However, they needed to be more seasoned as they obviously lacked salt and pepper.
For a breakfast, the portions of the burrito and the sticks were not as satisfying as you might think by reading about them in the menu. The portions were frankly much too small and unsatisfying.
The rocking star of their meals, and the most recommended dish on the restaurant’s Facebook page, is their pancakes.
For dessert, we ordered Nutella pancakes, which, unlike all we experienced before, was delightful.
The real reason to go to Angie’s Place is the pancakes, hands down among of the best we have ever tasted.
With a stack of five giant pancakes, stuffed and topped with Nutella and powdered sugar, the pancakes were very tender, moist, and bubbly.
Served with a side Nutella dip, the plate was considerably large and extremely tasty.
The mixture between the fluffy light pancakes stuffed with rich Nutella chocolate spread with the sugary butter on top of it, and a generous drizzle of that same chocolate on top, was heavenly.
The portions of layered Nutella were not too sugary for the mouth and the taste of the pancake dough maintained its distinctive taste to create a good balance. Whether you have a sweet tooth or not, you will definitely enjoy this fluffy and rich treat.
