Breakfast with a friend on a beautiful Sunday morning. We have heard a few good things about Rosies in the Park, a little neighborhood diner in Sherwood Park (close to Edmonton). The place is about 3/4 full when we get there...roughly 11am Ambiance is nice, kind of a little bistro with a cute "homey" feel.
Seated pretty much right away, we are offered coffee, but decide on juice instead (I am SUCH a coffee snob). As they serve all day breakfast, we all decide to order from that part of the menu. I order the Rosies omelet, essentially a ham and cheese omelet with hollandaise sauce on it. SC takes the Ukrainian breakfast special, which is 2 eggs served over 5 perogies, then topped with cheddar and green onions and served with a piece of farmer sausage. SC chooses to have her perogies boiled instead of deep fried - I of course would have chosen the latter.
Perogies were bland, eggs overcooked, but the sausage was really good.
Omelet was really overcooked...actually fried. Not too bad on the fillings, and the hollandaise sauce, even though it was clearly not homemade, was probably pretty good...but greatly overshadowed by the crispy fried egg taste of the omelet.
Service was average...although we had to ask for water a few times, and wait a bit before getting it, but it was somewhat busy when we got there, so it was understandable I suppose.
All in all, nothing special or outstanding compared to a chain restaurant's breakfast. Nothing to brag about and a place we wouldn't return to unless we had to.
