Breakfast Spot

Around since 1929 on Custom House Wharf, here's another popular dining establishment that I've yet to visit. They (whoever 'they' are) preach that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It's the 'gas' you need to run your engine on to get you through the morning go, go, go. As an adult, I've never bought it, even though I grew up on Cream of Wheat, Quaker Oats oatmeal, toast and jelly and orange marmalade(Mom's favorite), soft boiled eggs in that cute holder, Cheerios and Kellogg's Corn Flakes. Most mornings I'm lucky to get down that cup of black coffee and once in a while that 1/2 a grapefruit. And of course I hear from my better half while she's putting down this gastronomical delight: 2 slices of whole wheat toast, covered with low fat cottage cheese, 4 walnuts, a few cut up prunes, milled flax seed and a cup of green tea. Good grief! Can I get me two chocolate coconut doughnuts to go? Is her breakfast healthy? I'm sure it is! Nothing goes into THAT body that isn't. But... I mean, come on Man!

  1. Your breakfast sounds great! :)
    I agree that it's a very important meal, strong energy to start a good day.
    I don't like eggs but I like bread.
    I don't like bacon but I like butter!
    I can't start my day without coffee and hmmm you gave me a delicious idea, I mean about the chocolate coconut doughnuts!
    You know...enjoying the life!

  2. Sounds like our mothers worked from the same breakfast playbook! I've never been a big breakfast person, except occasionally on a Sunday. (That's the perfect time for a big leisurely meal in the morn.)

  3. I'm not a big breakfast eater. A granola bar will do.

  8. I love breakfast and am always ravenously hungry! If I may I'll have egg, bacon, bangers and some buttermilk pancakes, some pineapple and a glass of cold milk. :-)

    What? You haven't been since 1929? Nice weathered sign!

  10. Coffee -- two or three cups -- was usually breakfast for me, but lately I have been adding fruit in an attempt to be a bit healthier.

  12. Coke sign -- very vintage and fun. Could your wife's breakfast be a contrast to drinking coke -- a not very healthy soda? Your wife's breakfast sounded wonderful to me! -- barbara
