Rise and shine…all day long with the all day long breakfast served at Shoofly Kitchen

Your mother likely told you that, “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.”  Shoofly Kitchen on Boundary Street wants to fill you up with a fantastic breakfast all day long.

Open Tuesday through Sunday, Shoofly has always served breakfast and lunch, but recently Rosemary (the owner) decided to add in an all-day breakfast menu.  Her selection of items makes it impossible to choose just one, so the Lunch Bunch decided to sample several different dishes.

We started off with a quiche filled with collard greens, bacon and cheese.  It was deliciously filling that we couldn’t imagine ordering more food; but of course we did!  Buck ordered the Crabby Benedict,

which is a crab cake served over an English muffin and topped with a poached egg and spicy hollandaise sauce. Oh my goodness is was amazing, and yes quite spicy.

William, our 16 year old guest lunch buncher, has quite the appetite.  He ordered the country scramble with grits and could hardly finish it all.  This generous plate includes potatoes, sausage, eggs and cheddar cheese all scrambled together and then topped with cream gravy.  A hungry man’s dream come true.

As much as I love Rosemary’s breakfasts, I had to go with my old standby, the turkey sandwich with apple chutney, cheddar cheese and bacon served on sourdough.  I am a creature of habit and have to eat it every time I go.  The chicken salad is also one of my favorites, so I ordered one of those as well for us all to share.  Needless to say, there wasn’t a hungry person in the bunch when we finished our feast. It is not possible to leave Shoofly Kitchen without having dessert, so we opted for the chocolate chip brownies and the Grasshopper.  Both are bite sized and a must have.

Be sure to visit Shoofly Kitchen located at 1209 Boundary Street and tell Rosemary that the Lunch Bunch sent you. She is open Tuesday-Sunday for breakfast and lunch.  We promise you will not leave hungry!
