Day 5: Sign
I love breakfast. It’s my favorite meal of the day. It’s my favorite meal to eat out, especially on vacation. It’s my second-favorite thing to make from scratch (after baked goods). I love all of it. Eggs, meats, veggies, juices, fruit, bread.
Each time I move to a new city, I search for new breakfast spots. Don’t get me wrong–I love the Paneras and the Brueggers of the world. But I’m always on the lookout for the mom-and-pop diner, the greasy spoon, the hole-in-the-wall place with a cast of regulars straight out of Seinfeld.
The sign is basic, no-frills, and you could drive by it and never even notice it. Left to my own devices, I probably would have overlooked it. I’m sure most people do.
I have to give credit where credit is due: my lovely co-worker Elaine shared this gem with us. From the moment we stepped foot in the Waveland Cafe, I loved every little quirky thing about it.
On our first visit, I had the cinnamon stuffed french toast.With a side of the aforementioned hashbrowns.
It was so good that I had it again a week later.
And I am already counting the days until we can go back.
