We’ve been craving breakfast for a while now, so looked for a breakfast place on our way to Honeymoon Island State Park in Dunedin.  Landed at Benedict’s Restaurant on Bayshore Blvd.

Benedict’s is a small restaurant with a bit of kitzch going on.  Looks like a place where the locals hang out.

We both opted for breakfast option #2, 2 eggs, 2 sausage or bacon, and 2 pancakes.  We ordered our eggs scrambled with cheese and a side of seasoned potatoes.

The eggs were really cheesy and that’s a plus in my book.  I’m usually disappointed when I order scrambled eggs because most places cook them until they’re dry and rubbery.  Not these eggs though.  They were just the right texture with the cheese melted in.  The seasoned potatoes were very seasoned with garlic. 

And though we’re no pancake professionals like our friends Andy and Marek of Tampa Bay Breakfasts, I gotta say, these pancakes were pretty darn tasty. 

It took a while to get our food, but right on the table, it says every meal is made to order, so please be patient.  Our patience was rewarded.  All in all, a good, tasty breakfast for $16.50.

  • It was Friday night out with friends and we went to the The Living Room in Dunedin.  This was the first time I’ve been there.  It’s in Dunedin, right on the corner when you turn to go downtown.  Unfortunately, there’s a bunch of construction at that intersection and their parking area is really small, so some of us had to park in the hospital parking lot across the street.

    Since we didn’t have reservations, we ended up out on the patio, which under normal circumstances would have been fine, but it was one of the coldest nights we’ve had in Florida in a long time.  They have heaters and heavy vinyl drop curtains on the patio, but there was still a draft.  My feet and butt didn’t thaw out until well after I got home.

    I’m the only one in our group who doesn’t drink so while their cocktails kept them warm, I needed to find something else.  I wanted hot chocolate, but had to settle for tea.  It was an orange sanguine tea and helped warm me up.

    Four of us ordered the same thing, the Wild Mushroom Grilled Flatbread Pizza.  Flatbread grilled and topped with sundried tomato, wild mushrooms, artichokes, and Gorgonzola cheese.  It was really good and plenty for one person.  I also ordered the chocolate mousse for dessert.

    Dessert…  I love sweets, and if that sweet includes chocolate, then I am so there.  It’s a wonder that I don’t weigh 500 lbs given my weakness for pasta and chocolate.  But, let’s just say, I don’t usually pass up an opportunity to check out the dessert menu.

    As for the chocolate mousse, it was very thick and rich.  I should have taken a photo of it (I really will start doing that) because the presentation was pretty.  It was tear shaped with raspberry sauce, whipped cream, and graham cracker crumbs on the plate. 

    My bill was $15, and the mousse actually cost more than the flatbread.
