...Pain Perdu that is. 4:30 AM Kettle breakfast in Manhattan Beach this morning. For $14.76 plus tip I received (and ate with gusto) two over medium (perfectly cooked) eggs, breakfast potatoes, 4 strips of bacon, a disc of golden brown idealized deliciousness consisting of two rounds of french toast stuffed with cream cheese and orange marmalade AND fruit plus coffee. Now that's what I call good value. Huge roomy comfortable booths and a nicer interior than you find at any Denny's or Norm's or what have you. Plus friendly and efficient service from a waitress who is not just "going through the motion" to take your order and bring your food.
Every time I hit the Kettle at some ungodly hour I thank the powers that be for it still being there and still serving up food that leaves me smiling.
