My only complaint about the Nucleus is that I can't eat there everyday. Make sure you check the hours before you head over, but once you are there you will not be disappointed. My favorite is the Omega Scrambler and the fresh squeezed orange juice is a delicious luxury.


I just had the Asian Bacon today and wow. Robust, bacony bacon and a very subtle Wasabi sauce -- on terrific ciabatta bread that was airy and crispy on the outside, not dense and hard. My wife had the chicken salad sandwich (forgot the funky name for it) which was just as good -- creamy curry-flavored sauce with chunky chicken with all sorts of good stuff thrown in. I know this place is known for breakfast and crepes, but these sandwiches were outstanding.
