Breakfast at Comforts Cafe, San Anselmo

Last weekend I had a Sunday morning errand in San Anselmo. I managed to get myself over the bridge early enough to squeeze in a hot breakfast beforehand at the counter at Comforts Cafe.

This was my first time here and I have a good feeling about it even though I didn't love what I ordered. I had the corn griddle cakes with sausage. The plates that had passed by were different than mine with what looked like a patty of bulk sausage, some fruit, and two rather than three pancakes. Maybe those had a substitution that I wasn't clued in on. After seeing those, the dried-out Italian sausage link and the fruitless plate was a let down. The corn cakes were okay, but definitely needed the butter and maple syrup as they were on the dry side and heavy, and oddly, not that corn-y tasting. I decided not to send it back because I needed to get to my appointment in a hurry.

Nevertheless, I feel like I must have ordered the wrong thing. What should I try the next time I'm in the neighborhood?

If I wasn't headed for wine tasting that afternoon, I would have had a glass of Gruet sparkling wine for $5. That's a good deal. Or a mimosa for the same price made with fresh orange juice and Gruet, instead of some mystery low-grade sparkler. The wine list features a large number of half bottles, including Galatin Bandol, Navarro Pinot Noir, and Schug Pinot. The coffee was good and service was efficient and friendly.
