The short story here is that management hasn't overcome the growing pains. \r
Cake relocated from a little space to a much bigger one and modified their fare to include table service and a complete breakfast menu. I had brunch there one week ago. I was a little disappointed. I can overlook the fact that there's no hostess - although that's kind of a problem during Sunday brunch when people can be pretty competitive about getting their tables. \r
Now the food - I ordered their version of Eggs Benedict - ""eggs madame"". The menu describes everything you'd expect (plus cheese) served on a Croissant. When It came out, my eggs were squeezed onto a half of a croissant. and there was absolutely zero garnish. no fruit, no potatoes - just a pretty pathetic presentation on a huge plate. I was a cake regular before the they relocated. They often ran out of croissants on Sunday mornings. So I suspect that this move was more a conservation strategy than a cheapskate move, either way - it's not classy - I would expect them to keep more croissants on hand, or update the menu.\r
Lastly of note, when me and my girl were seated, there was already a table of 4 seated next to us. They didn't get their food until after we paid our check.\r
This place could last a long time since the Chestnut Hill brunch crowd is eager for an increased selection of Sunday morning destinations. If Cake's management doesn't up their game, they're destined to be the solid 2nd or 3rd choice.\r
Pros: cute dining room.
Cons: limited menu. failed the eggs benedict test. service isn't stellar
