The meal: **1/2
All the brunch spots that we’ve reviewed thus far are pre-selected but sunset grill was spontaneous. We were looking for a place to have breakfast and the weather was not so great. The first place we came across was sunset grill and the rest is history.
I chose the ‘eggs sunset’ which is a Benedict with peameal/cornmeal bacon. The dish came with 3 instead of 2 (standard) poached eggs. It was a simple and enjoyable meal but it did not have more to offer.
The place: **1/2
It has a very retro feel & look to it with the wooden seats and booths, low hanging fans and old fashioned stainless steel counters. The location we visited was next to the Ritz Carlton and thus was very busy. Check out RaspberryCream’s ‘crab cake Benedict’ review for more.

About the meal: I decided to get out of my “brunch comfort zone” and try something a little more out of the ordinary. The benedicts were served on crab cakes, with hollandaise sauce on top. It was a very interesting twist to the usual muffin/toast. The texture of the runny egg and crispy crab cake went really well together, and the hollandaise was a nice addition to moisten it all. The benedicts however were just regular, nothing exceptional.
There was a side of homefries – they were quite tasty! After eating the entire plate I found that there wasn’t much variety of taste. Although I would recommend this dish, I think it would be best shared – a sampling/apetizer portion would’ve been ideal for this.
About the place: Apparently they serve breakfast all day!! That to me is already a selling point. I didn’t know that when I decided to check it out though; in fact it was quite accidental: we needed brunch, it was cold, and Sunset Grill was the closest spot!
The venue has a casual but nice feel to it – good for a catch up, acceptable for kids/families and large groups. The waiters were just OK. we went at busy time, but I felt that our table was very neglected.
