Slickity Jim's Chat 'N' Chew- Fun Gus and Sweet Fancy Moses

Slickity Jim’s Chat ‘N’ Chew is a little place located on Main street. I came here with the girls before I left for international exchange and we were surprised to see a line up forming in front of the restaurant for brunch.

I did try this place out for dinner one time and I thought it was a pretty neat place. The interior is funky and the names of their dishes are definitely unique.

We took forever choosing what to eat because everything sounded so delicious! It’s the innovative names I tell ya! Great marketing strategy!

Lil Sis always raved about their eggs benedict so I knew I had to get something from this section.

I chose the Fun Gus ($11.00) eggs benny and it came with sautéed mushrooms/ bacon atop two poached eggs, English muffins, and lovely hollandaise sauce. I wanted to substitute the roasted potatoes with grilled tomatoes but sadly they didn’t have that option. :(

The eggs were perfectly poached and had a really runny yolk which is my favourite, however, I wasn’t completely blown away by this dish. I thought they could have been more generous with the mushrooms and bacon. As well, there was not a lot of hollandaise sauce and that usually is my favourite part of eggs benny so I was a bit sad.

The Sweet Fancy Moses ($11.00) consisted of prosciutto, brie, and artichoke as toppings. FW thought it was pretty good as hers seem to have more toppings.

Lil Sis ordered the Daily Special which had pineapple salsa and she enjoyed it very much.

Overall, the ingredients looked fresh and it tasted good. However, this would probably not be my go-to eggs benny place.

Because of these reasons:
  • dishes are a hit or miss
  • not enough hollandaise sauce! :'(
  • unique and interesting concept and atmosphere
  • prepare for line ups and long wait times for food
Service Rating: 2.5/5
Food Rating: 3/5
Price: $$ ($10-20)

Overall Rating: 3/5

Happy Eating!
