Jack in the Box 

The so-called brunch Burger at Jack in the Box was pretty tasty!

Starbucks 

Outstanding chocolate croissant at Starbucks!  Best eaten warmed up.  Grab extra napkins! 

Cracker Barrel 

Some of my favorite things at Cracker Barrel! On a recent overnight trip to Yuma, AZ we were able to enjoy both dinner and breakfast at one of the best restaurants in America. Here’s an outstanding meatloaf dinner plate with three sides. I always get the fried okra, hashbrown casserole and my favorite vegetable, macaroni & cheese.  

Next day was the Old Timer’s Breakfast. B&G with eggs, HBC, smoked sausage patties and hot grits! I didn’t have to eat for about two weeks after this trip…



The Oaks Grille 

Outstanding brunch recently at The Oaks Grille. I ordered the Biscuits & Gravy Breakfast for $9.95. Includes two eggs cooked “your way” and two pieces of bacon or sausage. Being that it was weekend brunch, it also included two complimentary glasses of champagne!

The dish consisted of two biscuits cut into four halves. Biscuits were on the softer side with no discernible crispy edges. Gravy was thick, flavorful and hearty with a very conservative amount of sausage nodules. It seemed that if this gravy had sat around too long, it could be used as some sort of binding agent in various construction trades. Big chubby sausage links were very tasty. And my scrambled eggs were cooked perfectly! Not all overdone, brown and tough.

Not the best B&G I’ve had in town, but it was respectable. Next time I’ll probably try the country fried steak.

Marinade on Main 

Another outstanding brunch recently at Marinade On Main! This was an original, unique, kicked up Benedict, the likes I’ve never had before. Although not on the menu, it seems to be available recently upon special request. Made with your choice of bacon or ham, it includes kale, two poached eggs and an excellent, flavorful housemade chipotle hollandaise sauce. The foundation is the biggest, best hot biscuit around. Such a tremendous meal, I’m so glad we came in to try it. 


Panera Bread 

Outstanding asiago cheese bagel at Panera!  I order it toasted with a liberal shmear of cream cheese.  Just perfect!

The Oaks Grille 

Outstanding brunch recently at The Oaks Grille! I’ve reviewed this dish ad nauseam over the years, so I’ll keep it brief. Still the best order of Eggs Benedict in Ramona with perfectly poached eggs. Price has gone up to $10.25, but it’s still a good value when you factor in the two complimentary glasses of champagne.

Marinade on Main 

Outstanding biscuits & gravy at Marinade on Main!

Catalina Island Brew House 

Outstanding chocolate croissant at Catalina Island Brew House!  This place is great!  They specialize in coffee in the morning and beer in the evening.  The perfect “brew” house in my opinion.

Outstanding chicken breakfast sandwich thing at Jack in the Box!
