A Cafe I Should Have By-Passed

Breakfast at a cafe

Grilled Cheese Sandwich, Hash browns, Biscuits & Gravy, Pancake, and Cinnamon Sugar Toast.

Now this is one café I could have done without going to altogether!  I tried this café on the advice of a couple of ladies (whom I did not know) who said this was an absolutely great little diner to get some good eatin’.

I had never heard of it and didn’t even know where it was located—but I found my way.  Boy, did I ever!

The café was pretty much empty except for the neighborhood regulars—who, surprisingly, can eat subpar food.  I couldn’t even eat all mine—it was so NOT good.  Only the cinnamon sugar toast made me smile a tad.

As you can see from the windowsill, there were two dead flies who seemed to have found themselves a permanent burial site as well.  That’s always a plus.  (I noticed this as I was eating my delectable breakfast, no less.)

Nobody that was there was happy to be there—or at least as you can tell from their faces they looked unhappy or grumpy.

So, if you have nothing else to do today, try a new little café in your part of town—even if only to give you the knowledge of how great or not it is.  Maybe you can save a friend from a similar fate.

Take-Away Life Lesson:  Not every little café/diner that someone else thinks is over-the-top fantastic is going to be that way to you.

    1. It’s always a crap shoot when you’ve never personally tried it before. Even when others rave about it. Have a scary evening as well! 😉

  1. I had a great cafe next to my house when I was at University who did the most amazing breakfast, in my opinion it was the best in the city. After leaving the area to return home and work after I graduated I made a trip back to the area to visit some friends. After a heavy night out we decided to get breakfast and I knew exactly where to go but to my disappointment (and my friends – especially after I had bigged it up!) the food was awful. This was down to the fact the owners had changed – maybe that was the case here???

    1. Good point, David. I don’t know if the one I went to changed owners or not. But my first experience was soon my last experience there. But that’s true about changing owners. Sometimes they do things or cook so differently from one another and you can tell a big difference. Probably your case, too. Thanks for pointing that out.

    1. It was the middle of the day around lunchtime, but I decided to eat breakfast food. I tried a little bit of several things since I couldn’t make up my mind as usual.

  2. Maybe I am just fussy but I have yet to find that ‘over-the-top-fantastic’ place to eat around here. As I am fond of saying ‘the more I eat out, the more I wish I’d stayed in!’
