I was rather excited to try Lockwood Table Cafe - the reviews were excellent, and when we got there on a Sunday morning it was already packed and took almost a half hour to be seated. The egg soufflés sounded extremely delectable, especially when the one I ordered was bacon and gouda. However, I was pretty disappointed. The bacon and cheese were placed on top, and if there was any cheese in the actual soufflé itself it didn't seem to be detectable at all. There seemed to be a few bits of bacon scattered throughout, but it tasted more like a bowl of very dense scrambled eggs. Soufflé brings to mind something very light and fluffy, and this soufflé was not. I ended up pouring the eggs out onto the plate and chopping in the cheese and bacon slice in order to try and salvage some flavor. I think I would have been better off ordering scrambled eggs than attempting the soufflé. The potatoes were bland and were only saved (slightly) by the pesto on top.
Not pictured is vanilla yogurt and strawberries, which I will say was very tasty. However, I don't see that as a demonstration of the cafe's culinary expertise, so I wouldn't put it on my list to go back again.
On a scale of 1 to 5, I would give Lockwood Table Cafe a 1. While I'm not usually very vocal about not liking food, the overall culinary experience was disappointing after such a long wait. I'd be hard pressed to give them another try, and would prefer to experience other restaurants over going back.
