When Mom and I went to Kennewick/Richland Washington to shop recently, we ate breakfast at Shari's on Columbia Center Blvd which is right next to the mall.
It was clean and reasonably new with somewhat updated decor. Our waitress was attentive, friendly, accommodating and helpful. The food was...well, Shari's...or Denny's...or fill in the blank for chain cafe's.
I had bacon, scrambled eggs and two pancakes. Mom had three pancakes and scrambled eggs. It's hard to screw up a scrambled egg, and they didn't. The bacon was crap quality, but cooked the way I asked them too. It was sort of a cross between smokey beef jerky and boot leather and didn't taste that much like bacon...and was super-duper thin. The pancakes were good but small, and tasted heavily of vanilla...almost like vanilla cake...which isn't to say that's bad necessarily. The coffee was weak but they do bring you a little carafe so you aren't likely to be left waiting for a refill.
The service was reasonably fast (and it was not busy in there when we went). I would eat there again. When you eat at Shari's (or Denny's...or fill in the blank), you sorta know what you're getting into.
