Looking for some food to eat other than Tim Horton’s for breakfast (thanks for the Wi-Fi and coffee), I quickly scanned through Foursquare and Yelp (had no choice) for some options. It was either Crucetti’s, Cock and Bull or Cantaloupe Annie’s (closed?) and so since we were closest to the Oliver Centre Mall, we headed to Crucetti’s.
The interior is dated, probably to the 1950′s. The patrons at the time of our visit around 9am were definitely all born then, if not earlier. By dated, I mean that the walls consist of a lower half panel of slatted wood and an upper half of floral wallpaper, complete with old black and white pictures of past Oliver baseball teams.
The menu is a single sheet of paper and contains all the basic breakfast items; two eggs any style, steak and eggs, eggs benny, omelettes, French toast, hotcakes, and some lighter options and add ons. Basically Crucetti’s is your classic breakfast diner.
Val ordered Two eggs any style (sunny side up) with
ham, bacon or sausage, hash and toast for $8.95. Thick slice bacon, crispy and soft hash, perfect!
As for me, I ordered the Eggs Benny on Texas toast with hash $9.95.
My eggs were poached soft as requested and drenched in hollandaise sauce as described on the menu. The ham looked like it came straight off the bone and was a nice alternative from a slice of back bacon or processed ham.
Not much else to say..the service is quick and attentive; you’re seated, menus are handed out and coffee is poured at the same time.
