Hunny’s Cafe

Outstanding Denver omelette with crispy hash browns at Hunny’s Cafe in Lake Elsinore!


Julian Gold Rush Hotel

My favorite memory of 2018 has to be our stay at the Julian Gold Rush Hotel!  This is a historic bed & breakfast in the heart of downtown Julian, CA.  The property is an 1890s national historic landmark and is the oldest operating hotel in Southern California. The vintage charm of this restored Victorian hotel is simply stunning!  All of the rooms, dining and common areas are decorated with a plethora of American period antiques.  
Lady FoodObs and I stayed in the “Patio Cottage” which is separate from the main building.  It has a cast iron fireplace and a veranda with views of their beautiful gardens.  Best part of this cottage was being able to smell the granola being made in the nearby kitchen.  Wouldn’t be a B&B without breakfast, right?  It was outstanding as you can see in the photo below.  Super delicious and such thoughtful plating.  Truly a remarkable experience all around.  Can’t wait to stay again in 2019.  Happy New Year!

Marinade on Main

Outstanding ham & cheese scramble at Marinade on Main in Ramona, CA!

Kountry Kitchen

Probably the most legit version of country fried steak you can find in Ramona! This one is definitely not off the Sysco truck.

Marinade on Main

Such an original and super delicious version of corned beef hash at Marinade on Main in Old Town Ramona! Huge chunks of tender, flavorful corned beef sit atop a nice rye bread toast with some sort of tasty gravy substance, plus perfectly cooked sunny side eggs.

Marinade on Main

Traditional Eggs Benedict is consistently elevated to the next level at Marinade on Main in Ramona, CA! Here’s an outstanding ‘Ham Benny’ made with their excellent house made biscuit serving as a hearty base. The biscuit halves are crowned with thick cut grilled ham, kale, perfectly poached eggs and one of the best hollandaise sauces I’ve put in my mouth!

Black Bear Diner

Recently discovered this great chain of diners throughout the southwest thanks to our good friends in Arizona! Black Bear Diner is an outstanding restaurant specializing in kicked up diner classics. Here’s an excellent order of corned beef hash unlike you’ll find most anywhere else. I particularly appreciated the unique strip cut hash browns.

Bumbleberry Flats

Outstanding Southern Pecan French Toast breakfast at Bumbleberry Flats! This is such a great restaurant, it seems to be an institution in Laughlin, NV. Definitely eating here again next time we’re in town. Unfortunately the hotel it’s connected to is a dump.

The Broken Yolk Cafe

Outstanding Western Benedict at The Broken Yolk Cafe in Temecula! Although somewhat haphazardly constructed, it was still super delicious.

Taco Bell

One of my favorite things to order at the Bell for breakfast are these tasty mini skillet bowl things! Tremendous value at only a buck and super delicious. Made with scrambled eggs, taters, nacho cheese and pico de gallo. I always have them add either seasoned ground beef or steak to make it a perfect meal.
