We checked out breakfast at La Flor on Sat.; looked at Krystal, too (thanks Jeremy) but weren't up for garlic fried rice for breakfast. Anyway, we loved it. Great coffee, multigrain bread, and service. We even ended up with free pancakes(not worthwhile long story.) These come drenched in syrup and cooked fruit - a bit too sweet for me. The only negative was the homefries - they looked amazing, and even had zucchini in them, but were so bland that no amount of too-late salt and pepper could save them.
Also went to Manducatis this week-end and thought it was terrific. Had the bolognese, Veal Francese, Eggplant Rollatine -all pretty wonderful, but thought the side of broccoli was the best part.
Thank you for all the groovy recommendations; will try to return the favor.
