Savory Street


We stopped by Savory Street for a fresh and tasty breakfast this morning.

Loren got the Spanish burrito and I went for the ham, egg & cheese croissant.  The croissant was buttery and fresh and I had to hold myself back from ordering some of their other pastries to go.  Loren enjoyed the burrito.  It had chorizo, eggs, and cheese and a fresh salsa.  Total bill was $15.

  • We were on our way to Sarasota and stopped at the Sage Biscuit Cafe for brunch.  It was really busy this morning.  We had about a 20 minute wait for a table. They have seating both outside and in & since the outside seating was in the shade we were ok sitting out there.  Everything on the menu sounded good and we finally settled on breakfast for me & lunch for Loren.

    He ordered the salmon BLT with the cucumber salad for his side dish.

    He really enjoyed it.  The salmon was perfectly cooked and the cucumber salad had chick peas and herbs and other veggies plus a tasty dressing on it.  He couldn’t stop eating it.  I went for the Sage Biscuit breakfast platter.

    There was more than enough food on this plate and everything was well seasoned and tasty and only $9.99.  The biscuit was amazing.  It had a wonderful savory flavor to it.  So many restaurants serve very plain breakfast potatoes, but these had a delicious spice mixture on them.  The French toast was thick and filling.  I was stuffed by the time we were ready to leave.  Definitely a place we’d return to next time we’re in Bradenton.  Total bill with a drink was $25.

    Another Broken Egg Cafe opened recently in Clearwater in the Northwood Plaza on McMullen Booth Rd.  It’s a chain breakfast restaurant and there was about a 15 minute wait this morning.  We were there with friends and three of us ordered the Lakeshore scramble and Loren just got the city grits & some scrambled eggs.

    The grits were really good.  They had garlic, onions, gouda, bacon, tomatoes & green onions in them.  As for everything else, it was pretty standard breakfast fare.  Nothing that made any of us say we just had to come back.   We weren’t too impressed with our waitress.  She didn’t seem like she wanted to be there at all.  The restaurant also has an open ceiling which makes it louder in there than it needs to be.  Total bill was $18 for the two of us.

    I needed one good country breakfast while we were in North Carolina, so we stopped at the Iron Skillet in Bryson City.  The place was busy for a Wednesday morning, but we managed to grab a table and ordered up some grub.

    Loren got the western omelette and I had to have some biscuits & gravy with scrambled eggs and bacon.  I actually ordered the bacon for Loren because I’m not a big bacon fan, but this stuff was good.  It had a sweet, brown sugar goodness to it that I ended up eating more of it than I thought I would.  The biscuits were fresh, light, and fluffy and the gravy had the right amount of sausage and pepper in it.  This was a proper down home breakfast all for $16.

  • A friend and I were heading to a movie and stopped at First Watch for breakfast.  Luckily, we got there before the big Sunday crowd showed up.  We both ordered skillets.

    I got mine with avocado and over easy eggs. The potatoes were perfectly cooked and the fruit on the side was fresh.  It was fresh and perfectly cooked.  That’s one of the things I really like about this restaurant.  Everything from the decor to the food is light and fresh.  It just has an overall different feel from so many of the other chain breakfast restaurants.  Something as simple as leaving a pitcher of water and coffee on the table makes it so much more convenient for both the waitress and us.  Total bill was $9.
