Review: Lallisse is a Mediterranean take on brunch, but not in a good way. We came here because the line at Penelope’s (across the street) was too long. The nice cozy rustic decor seemed really promising until the food came. The menu is very limited and overpriced and the service was super slow. The eggs benedict and the Mediterranean omelette were bland and tasteless, and a little on the cold side. Even the strawberry mimosa was subpar, I guess they were going for a “fresh fruit” thing but it was really just mashed up strawberries floating in champagne. You’re WAY better off waiting it out at Penelope’s or just going elsewhere.
