breakfast time

It’s been awhile since i’ve been to this place, but if you want a good standard american breakfast you should come here. They say they’re famous for their homemade sausages which are tasty, but oddly there is no porridge on the menu. The pancakes are nice and fluffy and the omeletes are savory.

This place is usually packed since it’s very tiny. But one half of the restaurant is a waiting room with huge leather sofas. You wonder why they don’t add more tables and expand but oh well, at least you can relax and have some coffee while waiting.

What I like about this place is the staff rotates jobs everyday. So the host one day can be the chef the next day or the waiter the next. Don’t worry, you won’t get inconsistent meals since the staff has been pretty loyal to this restaurant and are very friendly.
I advise to try this place on a rainy day!

Blueberry Pancakes Rrock!

Well, I don’t know much but I do know my pancakes or hot cakes as we called them. The blueberries are what make those pancakes at Bread and Porridge so authentic. I swear they taste like the one my granny made for me back home in Maine! Some of the reviewers that bellyached about the pancakes probably don’t know what real hotcakes as supposed to taste like. These guys that keep talking about “fluffiness” probably learned all about pancakes at IHOP! Scratch hotcakes with blueberries cant be “fluffy” if they are filled with tons of berries like they do at Bread and Porridge. Almost as good as the ones at Jordans in Bar Harbor.
The only complaint I had at this place is the wait on weekend mornings, but the waiters are nice and bring me coffee if I have to wait in their waiting area. Well, the only other complaint might be that they brew their Frenchy press coffee too strong, but otherwise I love teh place.

after reading mostly positive reviews about this place, i was disappointed to find myself not very much impressed by the food here. the quaint cozy ambiance was casual and enjoyable, but the mediocrity of the dishes left me wishing i had eaten somewhere else. maybe i ordered the wrong dish, but i probably won’t be coming back here anytime soon.
