Review: The French Toast from The National Exemplar

Today's choice off the Breakfast Menu was the French Toast from the National Exemplar.
Today, the wife and I hit the National Exemplar in beautiful Mariemont . I had never tried it before, and their pancakes were votedBest in the City’ by Cincinnati Magazine.  It is a nice restaurant inside the Mariemont inn. The menu had some good looking items on it, but I knew I wanted the French Toast, and my wife wanted a Blueberry pancake.  We ordered quite a bit of food, so this is going to be a heftier review than the ones previous.

Review: Bacon & Spinach Quiche from Bluebird Bakery

Today's choice off the Breakfast Menu was the Bacon and Spinach Quiche from the Bluebird Bakery and Cafe:

Today, after dropping off my son at the baby sitters I decided to grab a quick bite to eat. I recalled their being a good breakfast place in Glendale, but I couldn’t remember where it was. A quick google search on my Droid lead me to The Bluebird Bakery in Historic Glendale. It was a small little quiet place nestled among antique shops. I walked in and was greeted by classical music from the radio playing softly. I looked at the menu and made the decision to go with the Quiche, which had been recommended by the website that endorsed the place

Review: Cinnamon Almond French Toast

Today's choice off the Breakfast Menu was the Cinnamon Almond French Toast from the Original Pancake House in Montgomery

My wife was out of town today but, breakfast being my favorite meal I decided to hit up a regular spot we go to, the Original Pancake house in Montgomery. For my meal I decided to get the Cinnamon Almond French Toast. It’s a meal I don’t normally order because my wife is allergic to all things “nuts.”  I ordered it with my typical side, two eggs scrambled with cheese.

What are we doing here

This is a blog about breakfast, the most important meal of the day. I am a big fan of breakfast. I have been having breakfast every Sunday with my wife for years. I have had breakfast in shops and cafes all across the east coast. I decided to create this blog as a way to chronicle the restaurants I eat in and the meals I enjoy. Stay tuned for weekly reviews, recipes and ideas for the perfect breakfast.
