Today is the 4th week we’ve managed to go out hunting for a good breakfast spot in Hampton Roads. We tried Charlie’s Café on Granby Street. The weather was lovely, so we actually sat outside (which is pretty much just the sidewalk on a fairly busy street). It was really pleasant.
Ric ordered the usual: scrambled eggs with cheese, sausage (patties), pancakes.
I ordered the Café Cristo omelet (I think that was the name), with turkey, onions, tomatoes, and swiss. I opted for a biscuit as one of my sides and the homemade applesauce as my other side. While the applesauce was quite good, the biscuit had a chewy texture that made me think it had been frozen. The omelet was extremely fluffy and I couldn’t eat the whole thing! The pancakes were okay–they were very pretty and smelled good but were more bland than I expected from the smell.
Overall, breakfast ran $22.57. It was definitely the most pleasant breakfast experience that we’ve had so far, and we want to come back (already).
