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!
