Pat O'Malley's Jet Room is the kind of place we'd been looking for when we started this project: a little-known, friendly, locally-run restaurant, and we'll be back after the List is done. While 10AM on a Saturday might spell a long wait at most breakfast places, here it was busy without feeling rushed. Outside, the view of the landing field was beautiful; inside, the decor surprised us with its kitschy yet uncluttered approach. The menu even lived up to our hopes with aviation puns.
Breakfast started with decent diner coffee for most of us. Before long the food arrived. The DEN omelet was Josh's ideal diner Denver: nice chunks of ham and peppers and not overly cheesy. The marble rye toast was really good and buttery.
Nichole's DEN sandwich was a thoughtful variation on that theme. A scrambled egg bound together sauteed peppers and onions with thin slices of juicy ham, set between buttered toast, and a ripe melon slice on the side.
The three iterations of French toast we tried were all delightful, too. Walt's we can only assume was good because it disappeared so fast. JM and Stef agreed the toast was fluffy and not too eggy, thought it may have been a little underqualified on the syrup absorption front. JM's was dusted lightly with powdered sugar, and Stef's fresh strawberries had a perfect texture. The whipped cream was a surprise but wasn't overwhelming.
Constance got the scrambled eggs and biscuit, which were good on both counts. Of the biscuit, she commented:
Biscuits are a good measure of a breakfast menu (hard to do, often from mix or freezer). The biscuits here are homemade and have just the right texture. Very satisfying.
Kurt's vegetable casserole was probably the most balanced meal, and while each dish was pretty, his was the most vibrant with lightly sauteed broccoli and fresh tomatoes. It was good, not too greasy, not heavy but very filling.
The north side may boast few restaurants, but the ones it does seem way above average. Even if you don't have a meal here, you really should stop in to enjoy the cushy couches in the lobby and watch some little private planes come and go.
