Food/Drinks: Love the nontraditional brunch special that fits anyone's budget. Instead of paying a set amount and getting an entree and a drink, Slightly Oliver offers a free drink with any entree on the menu - priced individually.
For $8 you can indulge in eggs any way you like, and you won't be disappointed with measly portions. Take a look at the image below, the plate is overflowing with scrambled eggs and roasted potatoes. This dish also came with toast (although it was the tiniest piece of toast ever) and a cocktail.
For $2 more, add in two ingredients for an omelette. They were out of spinach so I opted for mushroom and swiss. I gotta say, this was the perfect omelette with just the right amount of ingredients, not too greasy, and sized to my liking. Also, it came with a pretty big side salad, lightly dressed.
The sangria was delicious - and I tend to be skeptical of sangrias. Not too sweet, just the right amount (and right size) of cut up fruit, and super refreshing.
Atmosphere: While the inside of the restaurant looks like any old pub, if you look up you'll see a beautiful chandelier that seems a bit out of place. The outside is comfortable with many tables and attentive service.
