Sunday brunch Part 3

Sunday brunch time again. :-) This time, it's another catchup with former work colleagues. We met at Jetty Café in Petone, close to where I spend a fair bit of time these days. :-)

Their website says "We didn't want to divulge too much information about Jetty, we'd rather you and your friends experience it for yourself!". A shame, really. We arrived shortly after 11am when the place was about half-full. Apparently this equated to "being run off our feet", and we were warned that the service might not be great. Hmmm. Good start.

The coffee (Mojo) was strong and eventually got to us. My eggs were over-runny (not too bad, but not great). My friend's Eggs Benedict arrived drenched in Hollandaise sauce, even though she had ordered it on the side. So, another wait while they re-cooked her breakfast. Another apology on the way out the door for the bad service, accompanied by a promise that if we had come after lunch, then it would have been better. But, really, what's the point of going out for brunch/lunch after lunch? I might give Jetty another try, but probably just for one of their Sunday afternoon jazz sessions, rather than a meal. We'll see.
