My buddy and I are two self-proclaimed breakfast nerds who spend much of our free time (lots of it!) having breakfast at any of the dozens of excellent restaurants we've discovered over the years. But just yesterday we may have hit the Mother Lode - The Calico Cupboard in Mt. Vernon. A bakery to die for - literally! A diabetic will pass away immediately after one bite of anything. Original and not-so-original breakfasts served by the friendliest wait staff we've seen in a long time. Atmosphere par excellence - an old warehouse with an adjacent well-stocked bookstore. Original creaky floorboards and brick walls. Spacious and airy. Hope you try it. Bon appetit!
