Keltic Kitchen...Cape's best breakfast

CapeCodGuy | Jun 4, 2011 08:10 AM

Really excellent breakfast joints are few and far between on the Cape. Many love Grumpy's but to me, it's just basic greasy fare. Others love Red Cottage which I find just okay. Still others rave about the Daily Paper in Hyannis which is hit or miss to me. Hangar B in Chatham is one place certainly worthy of the "Special" label but for shear breadth of offerings, and value recieved for both price AND quality, Keltic Kitchen on Rte 28 in Yarmouth is hands down the winner.

It had been awhile since we ventured to the south side for an early breakfast and we wre pleasantly surprised to see the menu has expanded greatly with new combinations of eggs, pancakes, meats, french toasts, omelettes, potato pancakes, etc. We sat at the counter and watched huge dish after dish come out of the open kitchen and marveled at the football sized omelettes loaded with clearly fresh ingrediants like mushrooms, baby spinach, ripe tomatoes, and even lobster. Mounds of moist homemade cornbeaf hash sizzed on the grille. Eggs Benny served on fresh Salmon Cakes or Seafood Cakes and hashes made from lobster,clams,shrimp and scallop were dripping with house made tangy hollandaise. Four guys were cooking furiously, each as skilled as the next.

It's cramped, and loud, and bustling but oh so good. 2 coffees, a large OJ, 2 eggs with 2 huge fluffy pancakes loaded with fresh blueberries, 2 Irish sausage, and a mound of crispy bacon for me, 12 oz. of thick cut ham steak with 2 poached eggs smothered in hollandaise and a heaping pile of crispy homefries for the Mrs., all for just $25 plus a $5 gratuity for the terrific service. My only wish is that they offered real maple syrup for an upcharge. Otherwise, breakfast perfection.
