New Day Café
has two sister locations in Nevada. Its website pitches it as family-friendly. That tracks; it’s not a boozy brunch spot, not super formal and they have a kid’s menu. We start with country eggs Benedict ($10.99) over traditional and Florentine options. It’s basically biscuits and gravy with added poached eggs and sausage patties, certainly a familiar and rib-sticking meal. The gravy’s salty with no sausage flavor to it, aside from the chunks of actual sausage, and one of the egg yolks has been cooked mostly solid. But the sausage and the biscuits bear pleasant taste and good texture, and we’ll hardly complain about throwing an egg atop a plate of b&g. Side hash browns do fine. We also get a smothered breakfast burrito ($10.99), packed with big home fry chunks that stand up to avocado and scrambled egg moisture inside, though tomatoes and onions within disappear. The smothering pork green chile tastes more of tomatillos and lime than chile, but the pork cubes hold a good texture.
