Sunny Side Up

I think this place is under new management. It's still as good as it was before, but I miss the old waitress. They don't have a meatless 2 egg breakfast so we had to order ala carte. No biggie.
They didn't have rye toast. We got wheat. Quickest breakfast yet! Just over $12. Bathroom door is a slider, not on hinges. That's it. That's all I have tonight.

Craigs Cafe

KennyQuinn has no idea how long this little joint has been open, but we have to tell you about it! It was amazing. We ate at LoriAnne's a while back and I never got around to blogging about it because, quite frankly, it wasn't anything to write home about. It wasn't bad or anything...I just couldn't find the time to write about it. Oh, sure, we met LoriAnn in real life at Tully's and that alone is reason enough to eat there. Anyone who drinks at Tully's in their cook outfit at 10pm when their restaurant closes at 3pm is someone I want to help out financially. She looks a little Tully's if you know what I mean. The homefries are a pleasant, unnatural shade of orange. Handicap bathrooms. Nice view of The Presidents City Inn. Whatever.
Craigs Cafe closes at 4pm. KennyQuinn strolled in around 3:35pm on a whim. I need to mention that it's not like a regular breakfast place. There are no waitresses. You tip them in a little jar on the counter after you pay at the register before you eat. I love this! The next time I come here (because I will) I will tip generously. $5.10 gets you the ol' 2 egg breakfast. We thought that was a little steep. It's NOT. Tip the charming woman with the almost well hidden vauge accent. She also puts the cream and sugar in your coffee for you. They have a Newcomb Farms style bathroom. If you don't know what that means then you obviously have no respect for Quincy.

Our food was ready in less than five minutes. A sweet 14 year old boy brought it to our table. A nervous little fellow, from what I could tell.
Heaven on a plate is what he served. I know for a fact that the home fries were deep-fried. And loved deeply by at least Quinn. Eggs were perfect. The toast was fantastic. I would gladly pay $7.00 for that fine plate of breakfast. I liked the noticably cranky cook. I have to go to bed right this second. Go to Craigs Cafe.

The Early American

KennyQuinn ate here the day after we visited The Wheelhouse. As we looked over the menu and chatted about our last visit to the Early American, I looked inside the little cream pitcher thing. I always do this when I plan on having coffee here because when I went to Central Middle School this girl I used to be friends with would spit in them on a regular basis. That's a heads-up, I guess.
The coffee sucked. I thought about how the coffee at The Wheelhouse didn't suck. I wanted to try something new for a change but I couldn't decide. So I ordered the 2 egg breakfast. I don't think it needs to be capitalized because I'm pretty sure every breakfast place I've ever been to has a 2 egg breakfast.
I ordered it the way I always do. Kenny told to elderly waitress that she would have the same exact thing. The waitress made a common joke that contained the word 'easy' so obviously I replied with another, more risque joke that contained the word 'easy'. KennyQuinn thought it was really funny.
Our wait was short.
The eggs and toast were very good.
The home fries looked like they were at least 80 minutes old. They were wrinkled and shrunken in. Surprisingly tasty, though. Not Really tasty home fries, but way tastier than they looked. We ate all of them. Every single shriveled home fry was eaten and enjoyed.
Our bill was over $12.00
We over-tipped.
That's when we decided to eat breakfast on the reg in Quincy, and let people know how it went. I don't feel comfortable giving ratings.
This visit had another part to it that I shouldn't mention, but I'm going to; just so we don't forget.
It involves a possible familiar face, a failed attempt at capturing familiar face in picture, a failed attempt at creating a diversion, and a failed diversion attempt almost causing a possession charge.
The Early American has bathrooms that ensure privacy while pooping.

The Wheelhouse Diner

We ate here recently. Kenny couldn't decide what to get so she got the same 2 egg breakfast as me. Two eggs over easy, home fries, and toast. I asked for the home fries to be "a little well done" because I like them that way. I don't think I got them that way, but they were pretty ok. Kenny giggled when I said that I couldn't wait to stab my eggs with some toast. I giggled because on that particular afternoon I thought that I might be pregnant.
Our wait was short. Our meals were good. Then some construction worker guys came in wearing too much Coolwater cologne for me to handle.
Our bill was less than $9.00
We over tipped a bit.
