I remember hearing about Giant Robot when it first opened to much hurrahed fanfare. I understand there’s a shortage of restaurants serving good American food, but it seemed there was a bit more fuss than there should have been. Turning up for a Saturday morning brunch, it seems like the patrons agreed with me – we were seated pretty much immediately.
I ordered a flat white that was served in a mug. Decently flavoured and no real complaints about it.
We also ordered the brunch burger that was apparently pretty good. It had the bright yellow melty cheese one would expect from an American diner.
I went for the three-egg omelette, served with a huge slice of sourdough toast.
Perhaps it was just what I ordered, but I can’t say I was particularly impressed by the food. The dinner menu looks a bit more interesting but for brunch, I’ll have to try somewhere else next time.
