Everyone told me Day by Day is supposed to be great and the lines on the weekends seemingly attested to that. I finally went with my mom since we were meeting early on Saturday for brunch and there were no lines. I really didn't think it was very good. The place had zero atmosphere and the carpeting seemed out of place. The food was nothing to write home about. My potatoes were cold and the omelette I ordered, even though it had a lot of ingredients in it, tasted pretty bland. I wouldn't say the service was great either (more inattentive than bad though). There are so many great brunch places nearby, I would skip day by day in the future.
