First breakfast ride of 2020!
I read a nice article about Brekky's in Wading River so I decided to make it my breakfast destination.
I ordered an espresso doppio which was excellent!
There were some nice looking baked goods:
Me:
"What are these?"
Girl at the counter: (I don't refer to women as girls but she looked barely high school age)
"They're like scones with raisins."
"Do have any that are actually raisin scones and not just "like" raisin scones?"
Quizzical look!
"I'll have a scone with some butter."
" We don't have butter."
Oh boy!
"May I have a plate?"
"We don't have plates. You can use this." (Holds up a drink lid.)
" I'll use the bag, thanks."
I sat at a dirty table and had my scone which was excellent and my espresso doppio.
With three girls working behind the counter I thought one of them might have cleaned the tables.
I took a leap of faith:
"Do you have WiFi?"
Three girls look at one another:
" We do but the boss doesn't tell us the password."
Okie dokie artichokie! I thought.
I tossed my cup onto the overflowing trash can and rode my bike home.
Am I a grouchy old man, or what?
