woke up to the cape cod sun this morning. mornings on the cape are quite peaceful. this one was no different. the sun beamed brightly.
m has mentioned mary ellen’s portugese bakery in previous conversations. she’s told me it’s a place we have to go to when we’re on the cape. “they do portugese sweet bread french toast. i think you’ll love it,” she says. she’s got a breakfast obsession for french toast. i’m a veggie eggs benedict type of person.
this morning, we decided to have breakfast there. m described it as a hole in the wall that she could see guy fieri from diners, drive-ins, and dives featuring on his show. i understood exactly what she meant. they had random signs and posters on the wall, like the anti-stress kit and a sign that said,”if you think the food’s hot, wait til you see the chef.”
we ordered the french toast and their grilled homefries. of course, coffee is a given. it was the perfect breakfast.
the french toast was pillowy and sweet. the potatoes were tender with a little bit of spice, which is always how i like them.
if you’re ever on the cape, i highly recommend it. they also have a bakery that you can purchase all kinds of pastry from. we didn’t get any this time, but it is on my to-do list for my next cape visit.
now, all i need to do is find a good portuguese restaurant in boston. any recommendations?
