Two attempts at their "Bottomless Brunch" have, however, yielded less than stellar results. The potatoes are bland, the fritatta is spicy to the point of burning away any actual flavor, the biscuits are hard, the gravy is bland and, let's face it, there's just no way vegetarian bacon is going to work out right. MonkeyDo reported that, after waiting almost 20 minutes to get a chance at some, the french toast tasted like cinnamon apple oatmeal.
I love Sugar Plum's unique, homey (if your home is a commune) atmosphere, and the food seems to be well and thoroughly enjoyed by people a lot
I will probably be back to sample some of the non-brunch fair, but, so far, Sugar Plum is oh-for-two and the prospects for improvement don't look bright.
Final note: although their website says they "happily accept cash only!", I was able to pay by credit card, which was wrung up on someone's cell phone. It's 2011, y'all. I don't carry cash, and I really don't know many people who do.
