on breakfast

Here is Peter at Floyds. I was sitting across from him in another booth. Peter has mentioned to me previously that he may own the place, and to prove this, he is sitting here with what appears to be the accountant. I’m not too sure. She ordered soup, but that proves nothing. Anyone can eat soup. What did prove something, though, was that when our waitress was coming over to give us our bill, Peter took her aside and she came back and said our breakfast was taken care of, thanks to Peter. This is the kind of breakfast authority few can argue with, and why would you? Only a fool would argue with a free breakfast from Floyds.
I should mention that Floyds is on Yates and Quadra, across from the Starbucks (not really helpful I know), and they have one of the best Eggs Benedict in the world called “The Homer” – here’s the description straight from the menu:

The Homer: Chicken, bacon, grilled mushrooms, caramelized onions, Cajun spice, chipotle mayo and hollandaise. It’s OK to unbuckle your pants after this one. Mmmm…meaty.

You’re damn right it’s okay to unbuckle after that one. I may or may not be a sucker for anything chipotle. I’ve been enjoying their take on it since I started going there for breakfast a few years ago.
If you are thinking that Floyds is one of those way trendy / popular breakfast places like The Blue Fox, or Shine, or Mole, you are correct. This means you are indeed a fool if you arrive there after 9:30 AM or before 1:30 PM. You will be waiting a long time in line. I recommend getting there at around 9:00 AM at the latest. Coffee (if you drink it) will come fast and the food is great.
