We had some sweet stuff like the red-velvet pancakes, and also the (chicken?) sausage and breakfast burrito. All delicious.

GREAT place for breakfast. The place is always packed out so you will have to wait but you will enjoy the experience when you have a seat.Love the strawberry shortcake pancakes and the portions are huge so you won't leave hungry

I went there on a weekend and had to wait around 20 min. but it was worth the wait. The french toast was delicious.

I used to go here between classes. You must try their pancakes and french toast. If you are in the mood for a sandwich try the Bongo Room Crab Club, or the Vegetarian Croissant Sandwich.

The Bongo Room is the best place for brunch on a weekend morning with friends. Although it is a small place and you may have to wait, I have never had to wait longer than 20 minutes for a table and it is worth it. All of their dishes have a fun creative twist. The breakfast burrito is one of my favorites, but you MUST try the pancakes.

I have never done this before but I feel like I must. Last Saturday, my boyfriend and I went to our once-beloved Bongo Room, braved the half hour wait (standing the entire time) just to learn that the quality of the food had seriously diminished while the prices had gone up. We both ordered Eggs Benedict and when our food arrived, the plates were 75% potatoes and 25% eggs benedict with the cheapest tasting hollandaise sauce and thin ham steaks you've ever seen- the kind you can pick up at Jewel and use in a sandwich. The gigantic mounds of hash browns were bland... It's a shame that once a place has some sort of notoriety, they feel confident enough to lower food standards and raise the prices. We will never go back there again.

Pros: NICE LOOKING PLACE

Cons: LONG WAIT FOR BAD, NOW MORE EXPENSIVE FOOD.

I had brunch here with some people from work after a terrible week and it was just what we needed -- huge portions, innovative menu options, delicious coffee. The mango/strawberry french toast comes with a scoop of ice cream on it! The breakfast burrito looked delicious, and I would have loved to have tried the veggie breakfast sandwich. You should definitely check this place out!

so i don't really know why this place is listed under "bar/club." CITYSEARCH, get your s*&^ together. Been there twice, and it's certainly a breakfast/brunch place. Anyway, citysearch errors aside, has one of the best brunch menus around, and changes seasonally. gourmet menu options. very small cramped space, however, and be prepared for a long wait.

Pros: fabulous food, fresh squeezed fruit juices

Cons: very loud, very cramped space, long lines on the weekends
