Update Feb 15, 2014: This restaurant has since shut down.
For breakfast one day while visiting my aunt and uncle in the States they took us to a new cafe. Tony’s Pea Patch Cafe is family owned, and they serve what I call comfort food – big portions, greasy, filling, yummy.
They serve breakfast till late afternoon on weekends. My aunt was greeted by owner Tony from the kitchen when we stepped in. This tells me that they serve home-cooked recipes here.
They also sell a lot of other stuff. At the waiting area, there are lots of stuffed animals and balloons for sale. They also make their own freezer jam that is used in the restaurant, and is for sale too. Along with their regular menu that’s on their website, they have a daily specials chalkboard that you can only see in-store.
One such item on that board is this Country Fried Steak. It was YUMMY. I think it was a ground beef/pork steak deep fried, and slathered with homemade gravy. This is probably the best type of gravy I’ve ever had. There’s bits of ground up meat in it. This can NOT be good for my arteries! But it was SO YUM!!! In our party of 6, 3 of us ordered this exact same order – with over-easy eggs.
Another item on the specials board is the Stuffed French Toast. It is stuffed with peanut butter, your choice of jam, and cream cheese. It looks good. It must’ve been good ‘cuz Boyfriend gobbled it all up and forgot to offer me a bite. I was not happy!
This was a very enjoyable breakfast. It fueled me for the 5 hours of shopping that followed! I would definitely come back again.
