Lunches With Dad, breakfast style

Apologizes its been so long.  Life happens and I have lots of excuses but lets not bore you with those.

Dad and I have still been going out to lunch regularly, but the last few weeks we had to switch it up due to schedules and do breakfast instead.

This week we went to The Big Biscuit which neither of us are strangers to.  We needed a sure thing and it delivered.  I didn’t take pictures but it was a filling and good meal.  Super fast, too!  We had taken schedules to hash out and exchange and we didn’t even have a chance to finish that before the food showed up.  The bacon I had deserves special mention though.  It was perfectly cooked.  Yummmmmmmmm.


The Thursday before Christmas, we went to Chubby’s on Broadway.  My BFF joined us as we had big plans for the day (hence the need for breakfast instead of lunch that day).  Turns out there they start you off with cinnamon rolls.  They were perfect!  The icing was great and they were nice and soft!  I could’ve probably eaten just a plate of those with a glass of milk and been happy.


Alas, we did order food too.  I ordered a smorgasboard type plate that had hash browns and eggs (over medium for me) and biscuit with gravy.  Dad got fancy and decided to try, for the first time ever, Eggs Benedict with fruit.  He also got a biscuit and gravy (any breakfast place is judged by its biscuit and gravy!) which came also with hashbrowns.  Carrie got french toast with bacon and eggs.


It was a good meal overall.  Solid breakfast options and decent biscuits and gravy.  Dad even enjoyed his foray into the world of eggs benedict.  It is a bit far south to frequent but I would go there again if we were in the neighborhood.

The week before Chubby’s we went to a new neighborhood spot, Sissy’s Breakfast and Lunch.  The place where it is was a long time Northland restaurant, then was Crown Pointe Tavern (which moved to a bigger location, then Taco Luchador which wasn’t there very long at all.

It is a clean open space with nice people working there.  We were brought a plate with some fresh baked house made bread samples to try.  We both ordered pretty standard breakfast fare.  Dad got a plate with bacon and eggs (over easy) and hashbrowns and, of course, a side of biscuit and gravy.  I got a plate with eggs (scrambled with cheese), bacon and pancakes.  And a biscuit and gravy, you know, for research purposes.

The food came and we dug in.  The gravy is…different.  It has a different spice to it that neither of us could put our tastebuds to.  They say its a mix of two different kind of sausages, but the flavor is more than just that.  Dad was not a fan of it at all but I liked it enough.  The rest of the food was decent.  I would go again but dad says it was “so-so” (I think the gravy really threw him off ).
