Skip the bunch! Friends and I went to Brunch on Sunday, August 25, in the lovely Victorian double parlor dining room. Up until a few years ago, this was THE place to have Brunch, particularly for a special occasion or to impress out-of-town guests. It had been a fabulous dining experience and the menu difficult to beat for taste, presentation, variety and originality. As with many businesses, the restaurant was having a difficult time during these economically challenging times and it had started to slide in hours, food, service, etc. So having heard that the restaurant was under new management, we were anxious to try it again. Big mistake! Couldn't have been less impressed with the food and the service. As for the meals...the menu described omelets as fluffy, but better description is "toasted"! Very dry and unappetizingly brown with hardly any cheese. French Toast described as large cut slices, but in actuality were regular slices of bread. Speaking of bread, only one type available - whole grain and one slice per entrée. And as for the advertised (complimentary) pastry basket - it really appeared to have been "Little Debbie" pre-packaged pastries available at any convenience store. Also, someone in the kitchen needs a lesson on the difference between "hash browns" and "home fries." Menu says hash browns, but actually they were home fries so overdone as to be like little pebbles and inedible. Frankly, students in a junior high home economics cooking class could turn out a better breakfast. As for the service - albeit it was very busy but we waited 20 minutes to have our order taken; couple of orders were incorrect; coffee appeared to be rationed; and wait staff seemed indifferent. With so many great places in Port Townsend for breakfast, I recommend skipping Brunch at Manresa.
