There is a small, unassuming place that I frequent on weekend mornings when I'm too lazy to think of anywhere else to go- and every time I go, I don't even think to blog about the experience. But, I do think it is worthy of a review, because it is a simple, no-frills place that always cures my craving for waffles and sausage. So last weekend I finally remembered to bring my camera.
This little place is The Blue Cottage, and here is my Belgian waffle covered with real maple syrup:
I am always satisfied with this waffle. It is always fluffy, always perfectly crispy on the outside, always served with a nice sprinkling of powdered sugar, and always only $4.45.
Andy always gets an omelette (most specifically, a broccoli, ham, and cheese one). I also like the omelette, but I do have a few gripes about the plate. First, the cheese tastes like (and may very well be) processed American cheese, and the homefries aren't particularly flavorful. They need a lot of salt, pepper, and ketchup to be worth eating. But for only $4.95, it is a breakfast that won't make your wallet cringe, even after the night out on the town you may be recovering from.
The service is also nice and friendly, and we always get a kick out of the menu featuring a little cartoon chef with the name "Andy" on his hat, in reference to the owner and cook!
