Illium Cafe

IMG_20130525_110937

Poached eggs & pear cranberry oatmeal at Illium Cafe before the Troy Farmers Market one morning. Staff were great – very welcoming and professional.

Eggs were okay – one yolk was almost hard boiled, but the others were nice and runny. Skip the oatmeal. While the serving size was massive, it tasted like instant rolled oats with too much water in it, with some diced up pears and a bunch of dried cranberries. This would be great with steel cut oats, or if it was made the night before and left to let the flavors mingle, but this was made on the fly and was way too gluey and watery.

    Unless they’re rolling the oats themselves, I wouldn’t order oatmeal from a restaurant when I can just as easily have it at home.
