It had been quite awhile since we'd eaten dinner here, but one sparkling sunny winter Sunday we decided to have brunch. The senior price is about $16, so not outrageously priced.
The best part was the view. Of course!
The rest . . . meh.
Okay, to the food. Well the brunch was a buffet which we like. There was an ample amount of food but somehow, to us, it just sort of missed the mark. Mind, we're not at all 'foodies', but many of the selections were ... not so tasty.
There was a custom omelette station, and my husband had one made. He said it was okay. There was a green salad and a few prepared salads. The deviled eggs were good :-)
They had the usual breakfast items:
bacon - soft & good ...
sausage - okay ...
eggs - fair ...
french toast - fair ...
potatoes o'brien - dry.
This section of the buffet compared to a mid range motel breakfast that was "okay".
Then they had a few more exotic dishes. There was a beef & peppers on rice dish that had not been touched at all! I tried a bit and all I could taste were peppers, which I don't care for. There was a vegetarian lasagne that was cheesy and pretty good but for me had too much garlic. There was a fish dish that also was untouched, which neither of us tried.
I had a slice of turkey from the carving station which was a bit dry. The buffet also offered clam chowder, salmon dip and crackers - but we did not sample those.
The desserts were a bit disappointing. We chose a scone (at least we thought it was a scone) which was so dry we couldn't eat it. I did like a chocolate dipped strawberry, but there were only two of those and another diner took the other one. The blueberry cobbler was downright bizarre! It was a nutty crust over blueberry "soup" that was all liquid. Seriously, I would have needed a bowl, so I didn't try it.
Service was pleasant and friendly. Since there was a severe snowstorm in inland Oregon, they did not have the usual weekend crowd and were not busy at all.
Oh, Adobe does not use white tablecloths except for special events. They were the standard old tables with paper placemats. They had replaced the chairs since we had been and the new ones are very comfy!
It was worth a try, but I doubt we'll return anytime soon.
