Looking out at Middle Street from the confines of the Good Egg Cafe, this window caught my eye as soon as I sat down. It's one of those eateries with a split personality. In the AM, it's the Good Egg Cafe, serving a regular breakfast fare with a healthy twist, and come evening, it turns into the PepperClub: "offering local seafood, local beef and lamb, creative poultry, as well as vegan and vegetarian meals." The PepperClub brings forth pleasant memories of one of my favorite all time establishments in Portland, The Hollow Reed, a wonderful vegetarian restaurant. It made the BEST toasted, tuna sandwiches(my favorite all time lunch entree), with plenty of sprouts and thick slices of homemade bread. Many a Saturday, we'd venture down to the Old Port, and I'd partake in one of these. Mom taught me well. They were(my words) to DIE for. Honest!
