get that damn kale off my eggs bennie

three of us | Sep 28, 2012 08:13 PM

Went to Nancy's Airfield Cafe in Stow, MA for breakfast and ordered eggs benedict. After a very, very long wait (and it was not busy), the waitress brings my plate. I looked at some rough looking greens under my eggs and asked, "Is that Kale?"

"Don't you like kale?" she asked back.

"No, not for breakfast and not on eggs. In a million years I wouldn't have thought there would be kale on my eggs bennie." I tried a little anyway and it hadn't been cooked long enough,

Yeah, I know it's a wonder food and good for all that ails you but it tastes like yuck.

Ugh. If they're going to put kale on the veggie eggs bennie, please say so. It's just not something you encounter when you go out to eat. Nancy -- I think -- came out of the kitchen and told me she is on a "kale crusade (krusade?)" and customers like it. She gave me a coupon worth $10 off my next meal, which was nice. Given the high cost and small portions (2 pieces of french toast for $9) and it's not on my way to anywhere, I doubt I'll use it.
