Classic breakfast - Escena Lounge & Grill
Scrambled eggs, ham, fruit, wheat toast. $12
Escena Lounge & Grill, Palm Springs CA

This was ok. They give you plenty of ham, but the scrambled eggs were my favorite. They weren’t very light and fluffy. I still love their complimentary muffins though!

Granola and yoghurt – Cassava

Granola and yoghurt - Cassava
House made steel cut oats granola, house made yoghurt, summer fruits. $7
Cassava, San Francisco CA

This was pretty tasty, but honestly, there wasn’t enough food! We were SO hungry after having our tiny brunch here that we had to go to get dumplings down the street! I’m not a huge eater, so that says a lot about how small the portions are here. I can definitely eat, but I eat in small portions. Cassava’s portion were even too small for me!

I love the different shapes that all the pastries come in here! American blueberry pastries mostly come in a boring round shape. We don’t get a cool variety like the ones at Paris Baguette. It’s a shame. 😦

Cheesecake with blueberry swirl ice cream - Bi-Rite Creamery
Oh Bi-Rite Creamery, how I still love you! You have never failed me on delicious flavors or served weird waxy ice cream. I will say that the blueberry swirl was verging on being too sweet, but the whole thing was still delicious! Kid size $2.50

Hand-hammered cutlet, two eggs over medium, country gravy, toast and breakfast potatoes. $14
Escena Lounge & Grill, Palm Springs CA

OMG, this cutlet was ridiculously HUGE! I can usually eat A LOT, but I couldn’t even begin to finish this thing, lol. It was pretty good, maybe a bit on the dry side, but the gravy and breading were flavorful. I think my heart is screaming from the sight of this again, hehe.

I love Escena. The setting is gorgeous, the service is wonderful, and it’s a great value. This turkey sandwich was pretty large and they have a lot of add-on options to personalize it to your taste.

Blueberry streusel muffin – Starbucks

Blueberry streusel muffin - Starbucks

I think the bakery items at Starbucks taste like crap (at least at the U.S. stores), but if it’s the only coffee shop open at a small airport when it’s really early in the morning, I’m not past buying one. I swear these muffins have no flavor and taste like cardboard so you really need the coffee to help wash it down.. $2.59
