Met my sister in Winter Park today & we decided to go back to Keke’s for breakfast.  It was really busy.  We ended up waiting almost 30 minutes for a table for two.

She went for the raspberry stuffed French toast.

This is one sweet breakfast item and she was Mmm, Mmmm-ing the entire time.  I went a little more traditional with a combo of scrambled eggs, home fries, and French toast.

Mine was ok.  Nothing out of the ordinary.  The French toast could have used a little more flavor to it.  Maybe next time I’ll try it stuffed.  Total bill was $25 with two hot chocolates.

We wandered around Park Ave in Winter Park for a while and then decided to get some dessert at the Briarpatch.  They were out of cheesecake and I wasn’t hungry enough to get one of their huge pieces of cake, so I went for a hot fudge brownie sundae and my sister settled on some key lime pie.

Mine looks yummier, doesn’t it?  She said the key lime pie was very good though.  Fresh and homemade, just like the brownie and ice cream in my sundae.  They make some really good desserts here.  Next time, I’m going to have to try some of that cake.

Total bill with a lemonade and some tea was $19.  Our waitress was also great.  Always had a smile on her face and she was very attentive.

Met my sister in Winter Park today for the annual birthday gift exchange.  Our birthdays are 5 days apart, so since she lives on the east coast of Florida and me on the west, we usually meet in the middle. We ate lunch at Tibby’s New Orleans Kitchen.

I was craving some crawfish etouffee.

It was ok, not spicy at all.  I guess I like the version at the Cajun Cafe in Pinellas Park so much, that any etouffee that differs significantly from that just doesn’t satisfy the craving.  It had a nice blend of flavors, but overall just seemed a bit too mellow.

My sister ordered the chicken gumbo and half a muffuletta sandwich.

She was a bit surprised at how big half a sandwich was.  She enjoyed both items though.  Said she preferred black olives instead of the green that were on this sandwich, but that it was still tasty.  Needless to say, half of the half went home with her.  Total bill with a drink was $30.

  • Met my sister at Keke’s Breakfast Cafe in Winter Park today.  Since we live on opposite coasts of Florida, we usually meet in the middle to exchange gifts for the holidays. 

    It was a very dreary, rainy day and when we saw hot chocolate on the menu, we had to have some.

    Mmmm… that hit the spot.  Lots of whipped cream on top is always a good thing.  My sister ordered the blueberry stuffed french toast.

    She said it was good, but definitely needed some syrup added.  I ordered a Scambler with tomatoes, spinach, and mushrooms.

    It was pretty good.  The hashbrowns on the bottom were sliced red potatoes and it was covered in melted cheese.  Total bill was $25, which is a bit on the high side for breakfast.  This is definitely a popular place in Winter Park.  All of the staff was very friendly.
