Service and Atmosphere
On top of the hill in Coventry sits an almost unnoticeable gem of a restaurant, The Inn on Coventry. The atmosphere inside is comfortable and homey, and even thought the tables are packed tightly together, feeling a bit cramped is worth it for the tasty food and speedy service.
During our visit at The Inn on Coventry, everyone was friendly: from the hostess to our waitress to the owner who cashed us out, each person we interacted with was warm and cheery, yet very quick and efficient.
When we arrived on a Sunday at about 11:00 a.m, people were overflowing from the restaurant. Promised only a 20 minute wait, we decided it would be worth it and took a seat outside the restaurant. Less than 20 minutes passed when we were called on and seated, and almost immediately greeted by our server. After ordering, our food was brought out quickly, too–less than 15 minutes from the time we ordered, which was impressive for a restaurant packed to the gills.
What is breakfast without coffee? For $1.79 my cup was always full–it seemed like the servers walking around with a hot pot of coffee knew when I was ready for a refill. It’s not great coffee, but it’s the kind you’d expect from a diner–warm and caffeinated is all that sometimes matters.
The Inn on Coventry also has full liquor service after 1:00 p.m. on Sundays, so if you’re aiming to get a buzz during your brunch, you’ll have a wide variety of booze to choose from.
The Inn on Coventry serves up all of your breakfast favorites: eggs florentine, huevos rancheros, a variety of omelets, pancakes, and french toast. They’ve also got a few specialties up their sleeve, like their lemon ricotta pancakes and their much-loved eggs benedict.
After gazing over the menu and not feeling super hungry, I opted for two eggs scrambled, served with homefries and toast ($4.99). The scrambled eggs were perfectly fluffy, the homefries were fresh and crispy, and the toast was made from hearty wheat bread and was just lightly buttered. An ordinary, almost boring breakfast choice, I know. But, for a measly $4.99 I was delivered a delicious, filling, home style meal.
When I make a return trip to the Inn on Coventry, I’ll make it a point to be more adventurous: I overheard the eggs benedict being raved about, and I’m excited to indulge in one of their massive three egg omelets.
If you’re looking for a tasty, affordable breakfast or brunch complete with great service and a cozy atmosphere, then The Inn on Coventry is the place for you. Grab a cup of bottomless coffee, order some traditional breakfast fare, and delight in the simple pleasure of a delicious breakfast.
