Where do you go for breakfast out? I’m not talking drive-thru fare. I’m talking about that good, hearty, full breakfast your grandmother always tried to feed you.
I’m always looking for spots that have dishes with a little more pizzaz than a plate of eggs, bacon and potatoes or the you-name-it-topped sugary french toast. I’m looking for items like chilaquiles, which can be found at a few restaurants in town.
Bantam & Biddy offers a nice rendition of this dish on the weekends. A large bowl comes filled to the brim with softened but still the tiniest bit crunchy salsa-coated Los Amigos tortillas. A sunny-side-up egg and soft avocado slices join the fiesta, as does my addition of Bantam & Biddy chicken. Add a quick squeeze of lime and you’re set.
Next time, I may try the breakfast burger, a pork sausage patty topped with pimento cheese and a fried egg on jalapeno-cheddar bread. And where else can you have poutine for breakfast?
Next time you’re looking for a spot to have breakfast out, consider Bantam & Biddy. In the meantime, share your breakfast eats with us.
