We stumbled upon the 14 Carrot Cafe accidentally, looking for something different from the normal breakfast places. Its not knock your socks off breakfast, just a good average down home place. The oat hotcakes were excellent. When I go back I would stick the pancakes, which were whole wheat based with a nice spiciness to them. Plus, they are HUGE. I ordered the Mediterranean scramble, which had some promising qualities to it, but lacked in other departments. The hash browns were dry and a bit flavorless and my toast arrived cold/slightly burned. The actual scramble was tasty, especially the crumbled feta on top. The scramble was something that I could make at home just as easily and most likely better tasting.
They serve Vita coffee a definite plus, but need to work on keeping it warmer. A couple of times they refilled my cub with luke-warm coffee. You can order espresso drinks inside, which are actually made outside by a barista. The ability to order a latte is always a plus in my book.
My reason for giving 14 Carrot Cafe three stars besides the yummy pancakes is the atmosphere. We were fortunate to have window seat, which provided lots of opportunities for people watching. I liked the relaxed feeling- in my opinion thats what breakfast should be, especially on a Sunday. Don't expect super quick service or a "stressed out" wait staff. Its truly a neighborhood café- its not a place to seen, rather enjoy good conversation with family/friends and relax. I think we forget what leisurely Sunday breakfasts are all about.
