Around this time, Michael and I were both working night ward call, alternating each other’s schedule… so when I was off, Mike was working and vice versa. Luckily, with only a little bit of difficulty, we successfully inverted our schedules. That meant, we were consistent night owls and slept during the day (12pm-9pm… ish)
That also meant, the opportunity for so many breakfast dates! Which never happens!
Finally had the opportunity to try out The Two Professors – a local favourite joint.
Great open space with nice decor and variety of seating options. Order at the counter and grab your own seat.
Michael (and many people we know) said the coffee was fantastic.
We were incredibly excited that they offered REAL bagels! So you know what we had…
We both had Benny’s in Detention ($16.50)
Michael enjoyed smoked salmon with sauteed spinach and poached eggs with house made hollandaise
I had the Italian sausage patty, bacon, poached eggs and sauteed spinach with house made hollandaise
We both agreed that the bagels were great – dense and chewy. However, my Italian sausage was not flavourful and terribly salty. In addition, it was a very long wait for our food.
Didn’t deter us from returning, as we soon came back for another breakfast. Again, there was quite a long wait for food. This time, I had the Cherry Ripe Pancakes – ricotta coconut pancakes with house made nutella chocolate syrup and black forest cherry ice cream ($15.50). A generous serving, however, I must not be a fan of coconut pancakes. In addition, the main reason I ordered this dish was the promise of ‘black forest cherry ice cream.’ Unfortunately, they served plain vanilla ice cream and when I inquired, the server didn’t even know if that was normally served. I was later told that it is the combination of the berry compote and vanilla ice cream that makes up ‘black forest’ Just a little underwhelming!
Despite that, I would still recommend The 2 Professors to those looking for a new place to visit for breakfast. However, I will wait until my next bagel craving! 😉
