Fitch Mountain Eddies, Healdsburg

My first visit to Fitch Mountain Eddies was prompted by its listing on the Cheeseburger in Paradise site, which has tipped me to some awesome burgers. I had the special burger of the day, topped with roasted jalapeños and Monterey Jack cheese. It was a solid effort, but not the best in town, and the fries were grainy inside.

But I noticed that most of the customers around me were eating breakfast plates (served until 1pm on weekends), and returned to try the breakfast menu. I asked the waitress if the chicken fried steak was prepped in house. “Nope, frozen”, she said. Then I wanted to know about the corned beef hash. “Straight out of the can”, she replied. So, I moved on to the waffles. At this, she smiled and said, “You should order that, we have our own recipe.”

Made in a Belgian-type iron, the golden waffle ($4.75) was very light and airy with a delicate crisp edge. Served with whipped butter and syrup, I paid the 50¢ surcharge for real maple syrup. Extra points for warming the syrup and the pleasure of a real waffle. Not frozen, not made from bisquick or pancake batter, but an honest-to-god waffle.
