I've long heard locals rave about the breakfasts at Penny Cluse Cafe in downtown Burlington, but even though I live here, I'd never been there, until last Friday.

My wife was having early morning surgery, so once she was admitted, I had time to look for breakfast. I was planning to go to Henry's Diner, which never fails to satisfy me. Instead, I decided to try Penny Cluse.

Big mistake.

Rubbery blueberry pancakes, drastically overcooked bacon, skim milk that wasn't served properly cold.

Maybe it was an off-day. Hope so, because if this is the norm, I wonder what all the fuss is about?
