Egg sandwich – Dolores Park Cafe

Egg sandwich - Dolores Park Cafe
Scrambled eggs with cheddar cheese on an English muffin. $4.95
Dolores Park Cafe, San Francisco CA

This simple breakfast sandwich was delicious probably because there was a lot of butter involved, both on the English muffin and eggs. Mmm!

Coffee - Dolores Park Cafe

Coffee with cream and sugar. $2

The windy Lombard Street

The windy Lombard Street. Such a tourist trap but even I have driven down this thing, lol! I feel sorry for the homes on this street, especially since it’s one-way.

Eggs benedict – Jones

Project 365: Day 117

We ended up having Chinese food last night, then staying in and watching White Girls on TV, lol! I’d never seen the movie and it was ridiculous, in a good way.

Today was another full day of sightseeing and shopping: Green Park, changing of the guards at Buckingham Palace, Burlington Arcade, Piccadilly Circus, The Monument, London Bridge, Tower of London, Tower Bridge, Covent Garden, and Oxford Circus. I bought some great tops at Topman and a cute decorative tile for David at Covent Garden Antiques Market. I still can’t believe how much we’ve fit into 2 days! D has been an amazing host and tour guide.

Tonight we’re going to eat in, then head out for drinks at The Black Cap in Camden with one of D’s roommates Dan. This will be our last night of an amazing London visit!

Eggs benedict Jones
Black forest ham, sauteed spinach, hollandaise, smashed/fried fingerling potatoes, and side salad. $12
Jones, San Francisco CA

A brunch standard, but very good. I liked the smashed and fried potatoes – so good with ketchup, hehe.

"Ring of Fire" annular solar eclipse 2012

“Ring of Fire” annular solar eclipse. On Sunday May 20, 2012 we experienced a rare solar eclipse. Of course, I was out drinking with friends but I was reminded by people outside the bar with black viewing films, ready for the occurrence. My iPhone camera wasn’t equipped to handle a glaring photo, but it did have a cool optical/lens effect. In the photo, the eclipse is actually projected back onto the sky (upside-down and backwards?).

Salmon benedict – Pinocchio In The Desert

Salmon benedict Pinocchio In The Desert

Salmon filet, poached eggs, english muffin, hollandaise sauce, with cottage cheese (instead of Pinocchio’s breakfast potatoes). $9.95
Pinocchio In The Desert, Palm Springs CA

This was NOT good! You can already tell from the weird color of the hollandaise that something is off. The salmon was dry and the sauce tasted weird. Boo, what happened to this place? I think I’ll give this place another go before I completely write them off.

Sunrise Subway melt – Subway

Project 365: Day 26

I hate Mondays! I really didn’t want to get out of bed this morning. But I dragged myself up and forced myself to the gym. Stopped by Subway on the way and grabbed a breakfast sandwich.

This weekend was pretty busy and I drank WAY too much. The bottomless mimosas at brunch yesterday got me really tired and I fell asleep early last night. Now back to the daily grind. I need to win the lottery, lol!

Sunrise Subway melt

Turkey, crispy bacon, black forest ham, pepper jack cheese, egg, pepperocinis, and olives on an english muffin. $2.50
Subway, San Francisco

First time to have one of their breakfast sandwiches and it was pretty good! And the price was cheap for what you actually got. You had the option of getting egg whites but I opted for the regular egg. I’m glad I got this instead of a pastry from a coffee shop. I ate WAY too poorly this past weekend.

Albert eggs benedict – Zazie

Albert eggs benedict Zazie

With bacon, grated white cheddar, and homemade salsa fresca.  Served on an English muffin with a fabulous light lemon hollandaise, home fries and orange wedge. Two for $12
Zazie, San Francisco

The cooks at Zazie are expert egg poachers.  These things are absolutely beautiful!  I love their lemon hollandaise too!  The bacon was so yummy, but I kind of missed the salsa fresca though.  I always order their home fries because they have delicious roasted garlic cloves.  Noms!  My one complaint is that the eggs benedicts could come out warmer.

St. Trop eggs benedict – Zazie

St. Trop eggs benedict Zazie

With wild smoked salmon, capers, and red onions.  Served on an English muffin with a fabulous light lemon hollandaise, with salad and orange wedge. Two for $13
Zazie, San Francisco

You can’t go wrong with smoked salmon, onions and capers!  Add a poached egg and hollandaise sauce and you have an even better combination!  These eggs benedicts are filling and refreshing at the same time.  David always opts for the salad – he does eat healthier than me, hehe.
