Kick-Start Your Day


Fuel to kick-start your day. Make it healthy...make it interesting...make it your own.
I happened to be hungry for an omelet today. One egg...couple of egg whites...that's a good start.
Now add fresh tomatoes since they're starting to taste like something after a long winter. Onions? In everything. Now the spinach...a lot (it wilts)...only the fresh stuff. Cheese? I'll skip in my omelet and go for some sour cream and salsa instead.
Whatever you like for breakfast...we'll make it. Maybe you'll find it on our menu...the Greek omelet, the Veggie Omelet, a super Three Cheese Omelet (add sun-dried tomato pesto and really pump it up)...or just go for some everyday oatmeal with almonds, dried cranberries and brown sugar (NEVER instant).
Healthy...not hungry. That's how to start the day.

Our Daily Bread

It's how we start the day...everyday at the cafe. Bread. This is a batch of our oatmeal bread just out of the oven. To be honest, I don't know when it smells better...just baked or when it's on the rise.

We make two kinds of breads for sandwiches and toast...this oatmeal loaf and our honey whole wheat. Both recipes are variations I developed from a home-batch of white.

What's the best way to eat it?

With real butter....AND, the homemade soup you'll find everyday at the cafe! This picture features the hamburger minestrone.

My favorite way to tackle a loaf of either bread...the ends please. I'll save the middle slices for everyone else.
