My boyfriend lives next to Mickey's, and I live next to Our Kitchen. Honestly, I think I won in the local greasy spoon contest.
Read my tagline. Did you read it? Yes, I am that crazy about hash browns. Every time I go to a new place, I abstain from ordering my 'browns well done because I didn't order the...well, you know. It is the litmus test to whether or not I can respect a greasy spoon joint.
These hash browns are superb. They are soft and fluffy in the middle, extremely crispy and well browned on the outside, even without specifying well done. I could have just eaten a whole plate of those. mmmmmmmm.
I ordered the egg, toast and bacon special. The perfect breakfast in my opinion. No frills, just the basics. They will also substitute a pancake for the toast in your breakfast. WHAT A STEAL. I don't normally like pancakes, but this one was so fluffy and absolutely scrumptious that I only had to give my boyfriend a third of it.
The service was super friendly and the atmosphere was super warm. Food took a little while, but I did not mind at all because I was so at home sitting at a table, drinking coffee and chatting, drawing pictures on the foggy window. It was such a perfect Sunday morning (ahem, afternoon).
The Kitchen Special is a must have. And the pancake is tops. The hash browns were perfect, the sausage was divine, and the coffee, oh man.
