The Wayfare starts you off with some warm popovers and my goodness, they were friggin delicious! They had an eggy taste that I really enjoyed. The texture was soft, light and fluffy.
But we went for the burger:
Wayfare Burger “Le Grande” – grass-fed proprietary grind, Marin brie, roasted onion, smoked bacon, brioche (with fries) $19. With sunny side up Petaluma egg – add $2 (which I did).
As a whole it was well put together. The cheese, onion, bacon and egg tasted great, but the meat was a little bland. Without the toppings the burger just falls apart. I ordered mine medium-rare as usual, but it came rare which disappointed me. I should have known better because the restaurant is really fancy. Oh well, lesson learned! For $21 I expected this thing to knock my socks off and it didn’t. So I’m only giving them three stars.
The fries were tasty and crispy and the room was loud which put a damper on our conversation. At the end they give you some small cookies which were also yummy with a salty kick. As is the case with a handful of burger places I’ve reviewed, if you eat here order something else.
