I have been wanting to try this place for awhile now and this morning I finally got the chance. My daughter is down this weekend from college but she is working all day. I wanted to squeeze a little time in with her and I knew she wouldn't turn down a breakfast out.
The Gem is located in a nondescript shopping plaza off of 441 in Margate. It's across from the field that Margate uses to host festivals, concerts, and food truck invasions.
The interior of the restaurant is very small but nicely decorated. I was worried about having to wait but we came on a Saturday morning at 9 AM but we did not have any problems. They are closed Sunday and Monday.
We were instantly greeted, seated, and brought coffee which we both sincerely appreciated. The coffee was on the weak side but I subscribe to the theory that any coffee is good coffee.
We decided to start with the cinnamon roll that stars in so many people's reviews. This is not Pillsbury from a can. It is huge, soft, and drowning in icing. Whatever progress I made with the Lean Cuisine and running this week was instantly undone but it was worth it.
For breakfast we both had the French Toast, bacon, my daughter had eggs and I had the home fries. Everything was fantastic. We ended up ordering way too much food especially after that cinnamon roll but we just boxed the leftovers. The bill was $30 and we had a ton of food.
The Gem Eatery is going to be added to my breakfast rotation . From the outside this place wouldn't have caught my eye but the Yelp reviews were right again, this place is a real "Gem".
