breakfast anyone? Chi-ko-roo on Church!

Hey everybody gets hungry right? Even me! I have walked by this place 123425456976 times of course but have never stopped in! This morning, Chi-Ko-Roo won the draw (or the rock-paper-scissors, whichever you fancy).  Did some quick Internet researching for reviews (this place doesn’t have a website) and was a bit skeptical.  Wanting to be true to my ‘I’ll try anything once’ mentality, I took the risk.

Here’s the inside…..after arriving just past 10am:

Inside Chi-Ko-Roo

Not too shabby, right?  Perhaps because this is a former Il Fornello? Whatever the case, our friendly (and foreign) waiter, quickly brought 2 cups of coffee (smart man) and took our order.  The food came 5 minutes later, and yes I time those types of things! This may be due to myself and beau being the only people there-but awesome nonetheless!

Here is the food:

Great food….quick service, and a fancy fruit shish to finish it off! Sounds good to me!  Normally, a Sunday morning (or late morning meal) includes several mimosas but since I have training with George this afternoon (you will meet him soon), I decided against that….

Yes I will return to Chi-Ko-Roo!

p.s. If you are admiring my manicure (and you should be), you can thank Nails by Natalie.  You will meet her soon too!

    Although I’m in the good old U.S. of A. and not able to ‘hop’ on over to your first restaurant review place, I have to admit it sounds and looks good. Fresh is always best! Is that scrambled eggs, toast, bacon and ? Can’t really tell from the picture. Can you list the items next time, especially if they are, shall we say, different?

    Good luck on your endeavor! I will be following your blog, just like Julie and Julia, eh??

    This is right in my area and I have been meaning to try it out. Alas, I hate the risk of a bad brunch – so thanks for some instilled confidence. I also like Lola’s Commissary in the neighborhood.

    great post, very informative. I’m wondering why the opposite experts of this sector don’t notice
    this. You must continue your writing. I am sure, you have a
    great readers’ base already!
