Before we get to my meal, let's address the fact that the portion size on my husband's salmon was absolutely ginormous. I swear, that salmon filet had to be as big as my face. I was diving face-first into my Crab Benny, so I didn't snag a bite. But he said it was absolutely delicious.
Alright, Crab Benny. First off, the crab cake itself was scrumptious. I think the thing I liked best was that it was a little more lemony than your normal crab cake and that citrus flavor was a very nice contrast to the rich Bearnaise sauce. The eggs on top were perfectly poached and the bacon was perfectly crisp - both things I'm VERY particular about, so that was a very pleasant surprise. I wasn't a huge fan of the hash browns that were served on the side, they were a little mushy for my taste, but the portion size on the Benny's was enough so that I didn't really miss the potatoes. All in all, a delicious meal that I will definitely order again.
If you haven't made it to brunch at Cafe Nova - go ahead and plan on it for this weekend. You won't be disappointed.
