Halloween morning dawned slowly. Early drizzles were soon swept away by a warm drying breeze. Flame colored leaves blew from the trees. Promises of a fair day for folks young and old to march in All in all, a good morning for breakfast at a restaurant named the Harvest Grill.
As we entered, we spied a couple seated on a couch and chair near the front window. Deep in conversation, they seemed to enjoy their leisurely breakfast. We walked on into the elegant décor. Earth-toned granite tile floors and salmon-hued walls gave the whole restaurant a solid, classic look. We chose a corner table near the front.
A pleasant young waitress delivered breakfast menus and took our drink orders. Coffee and iced water, as usual. As we waited, we scanned the menu. Many favorites to choose from but today it just took a minute or so to decide. When our fragrant coffee arrived in over-sized white mugs, we placed our orders. Eggs Benedict for M. while I chose Strawberry Stuffed French Toast.
We sipped our coffee, as flavorful as the aroma. Chatting idly, we paged through the Morning Call and Express-Times, skimming articles ranging from the latest on the flu to the upcoming election. Tuesday, November 3rd – remember to vote!
Our food arrived looking exquisitely delicious on the large white plates. Chef Bob certainly understands presentation! The waitress asked if I wanted syrup then brought a small pitcher. I didn’t need it. The thick French Toast was spread with cream cheese and strawberries, delightfully rich and sweet. M. enjoyed his Eggs Benedict, every bit as tasty as it looked. Although the food arrived hot, the one improvement, he said, would have been pre-warmed plates.
Our total bill including tax came to just under $20 (plus tip) for Stuffed French Toast, Eggs Benedict including home fries and fruit, with a side order of bacon, and two cups of coffee with ample refills. Our food was of good quality, service was excellent, and the atmosphere inviting. It’s worth a visit!
