So way back in the day, this particular restaurant was known as the Denny’s in Sherman. Most of us who went to Calhoun’s, would go there and hang out after we were done dancing.
Sweet Berries Cafe is located at 1835 Texoma Parkway in Sherman. Its hours are from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily; on holidays the hours may vary.
As with most of Texas, this week has been pretty busy, so for this particular review, we ordered takeout so that we could provide you with another breakfast review. It’s hard for me to get there during their hours of operation with my other responsibilities.
Facility: The exterior of the building is relatively clean and there is plenty of parking. The restaurant is easy to locate since it sits on the corner. The interior was decorated nicely and the restaurant is clean.
It took 4 minutes to be acknowledged by an employee, even though they weren’t very busy. The customers were super friendly and lead me to believe they must be regular patrons of this location.
The order was placed at 9:46 a.m. and it was 10:11 a.m. when it was ready. Unfortunately, the woman who assisted with the order was very short and not very personable. She appeared to be annoyed with questions pertaining to the to-go order to the point of almost coming across with a level of sarcasm. Considering it was the first time there, that’s the impression I left with. She also had a problem with us needing a detailed receipt. She said she had to have it for her paperwork. Ultimately, we had to take a picture of the receipt so we didn’t inconvenience her.
Food: I ordered the ultimate omelet with no bell peppers. It was still hot and the flavor combination was good. This is an omelet with ham, sausage, tomatoes, mushrooms and American cheese. I really enjoyed that the cheese appeared to be layered between the freshly cooked omelet. It came with a side of hash browns and a biscuit.
The hash browns were under cooked. They were more like mashed potatoes and had little to no flavor. I enjoy hash browns when they are browned on the outside and soft in the middle.
The biscuit looked homemade but it tasted like it had either been frozen or at the least refrigerated. It easy served with softened margarine.
My guest order the triple play, eggs your way (scrambled), hash browns and a biscuit with gravy. Once again, the hash browns were soft so I am going to step out and say this is how they are served on a daily basis. She also ordered a side of breakfast sausage. The sausage appeared to be under cooked as it was still pink in the middle.
Final thoughts: I don’t get to go out and enjoy breakfast very often but when I do I actually like to just sit and enjoy my food. I think it might be to my advantage to go back when I have time to sit and just enjoy the atmosphere and partake of the food at the restaurant.
Have you tried Sweet Berries? How was your experience? Is there another breakfast restaurant in Texoma that you feel we should check out?
