Country Gourmet of Mountain View - Mountain View (closed)

3/5 stars

ATMOSPHERE: Order at the counter, get your own coffee, fill your own soda pop, bathroom's outside (?), casual, kind of pricey, country-ish lookin', not as delicious or friendly as Stacks, but is a nice place for a quiet brunch after a visit to the awesome Mt. View Farmer's market, sort of place. 

FOOD: I've been here a handful of times and I've always ordered the same thing because it's sort of a treat of a breakfast and only Country Gourmet has it - Banana Foster french toast. Yes, it's more like dessert than breakfast and if you don't have a sweet tooth, don't even bother. The combo comes with half an order of their sinful Banana Foster french toast. It's made out of thick slabs of Dutch crunch bread, dipped in a cinnamon batter, slathered in this really delicious, alcoholic RUM BUTTER, drenched in yummy caramel syrup, and sprinkled with almonds. Yes, it's very rich and I can only really eat half of the half order. The combo also comes with 2 eggs (any which way you like) and some fruit.

YES: Order the raspberry lemonade. It's homemade, fresh-tasting, super sweet n' tart, and good!

NO: Stay away from the potatoes. They're dry, coated in paprika (and not in a good way), and pretty bad.
