Classic breakfast – Escena Lounge & Grill

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!

Bacon and eggs - Wingmasters Sports Bar
Two eggs over-easy with sizzling fresh bacon, Yukon Gold hashbrowns and toast. $7.59
Wingmasters Sports Bar, Seattle WA

This basic breakfast is hearty enough and at a reasonable price. The servers here are really great and the atmosphere is upbeat and friendly. It’s a wonderful spot to grab a beer and wings to watch sports tv in Ballard.

Mimosa. Gotta start the day off right! 🙂

Power poach – Grange Restaurant

Power poach - Grange Restaurant
Two eggs, whole wheat toast, apple wood smoked bacon, fresh fruit. $13
Grange Restaurant, Sacramento CA

Omg, the guy running the host desk was HORRIBLE! I walked in to a barely seated restaurant during breakfast service and he was way too busy on the phone. He made eye contact with me and kept talking, and even switching from the phone at the bar to the phone at the host desk. I’m literally just standing there watching him for almost 10 minutes. Some sweet busser finally had to come over and offer to seat me! And my waiter even apologized that I had to wait forever to get seated. How can an entire restaurant know that someone is waiting WAY too long to get seated and the clueless, idiot host doesn’t?!? This boggles my mind. I don’t make it so Sacramento very often, but if this is their idea of fine service I’ll stick to San Francisco thank you very much. Btw, my power poach was boring and bland.

Orange juice - Grange Restaurant
Orange juice. Small $4

BBQ Gulf shrimp – Town Hall

BBQ Gulf shrimp - Town Hall
Worcestershire sauce, scallions, sprouts, garlic herb toast. $15
Town Hall, San Francisco CA

This tasted good, perhaps way too salty, but it still had great flavors. You would think that a nicer place like Town Hall would know better than to over-season their food, but maybe they were having an off night. Nicely cooked shrimp has to be one of my favorite things especially with the heads attached. I’ve always been surprised at how many people won’t try sucking out the heads because they’re afraid or disgusted. But that’s where all the favorite is! Mmm, shrimp heads are SO amazing, NOMS!

Faith’s warm ham and cheese toast – Town Hall

Faith's warm ham and cheese toast - Town Hall
Poached egg, jalapeno cream. $14
Town Hall, San Francisco CA

Omg, this appetizer was a meal by itself! And a delicious one at that, but you certainly can’t have more food after this dish. It’s super heavy and filled with fatty goodness. You are not warned on the menu, but it also comes with 3 jalapeno poppers, lol! The jalapeno cream sauce is frickin’ delicious and the poached egg is great after it’s broken and mixes with the cream sauce. This dish is like a fancy croque madame gone crazy! (But a good kinda crazy.) Noms!
