Breakfast: I haven’t been here many times for breakfast, but the omelets are HUGE and fresh and I have felt a little envious of the unique breakfast platters surrounding me. I think brunch is a highlight of this place, and their menu looks great.
Lunch/ dinner: Salads are a highlight. Huge, fresh and full of veggies, cheese and flavor- just the way I like them. I enjoy their lemon vinaigrette, which is their house dressing. It’s a mild lemony flavor that enhances the salad without overpowering, much higher quality than your Coney Island Greek salad with a good variety of choices. What’s a perfect add-on to a salad? Well, soup of course. I haven’t found a soup I didn’t like at Christine’s- they are all homemade and flavorful. My favorite choice is the lentil soup, though the chicken noodle was tasty too.
I’ve tasted some of their comfort food entrees as well, so here’s a quick rundown: Bomb burrito with shrimp (tastes like you’d imagine, but it’s HUGE and filling!), Tuscan chicken (a special worth ordering) and cheeseburger (not the best I’ve had, but satisfying and much better than your average diner). This being said, you’ll be pleased with the homemade quality of Christine’s, though not adding it to your must-go foodie destinations. I always find myself back there eventually, and that actually says a lot.
