Who recommended Frittata in Clawson, MI to me?

Whoever you are, I just wanted to thank you. I finally remembered to stop there for breakfast late last week, and it was a great experience. I was genuinely surprised by how much I enjoyed this non-traditional breakfast food (Garlic aioli with my breakfast? Really?), and could easily tell that the food they used was of high quality.

I actually stopped at Hermann's Bakery in Royal Oak and had a couple of doughnuts for what I *thought* was going to end up being my breakfast, and then when I remembered to go to Frittata, I sort of regretted eating them. Not that they aren't great doughnuts (they are), but once I was done at Frittata, I was quite stuffed. Stuffed to the point where I didn't need to eat lunch that day. Had I not had the doughnuts, the frittata I had would have been plenty sufficient for breakfast. It wasn't small, and it was *darned* tasty. I built my own, with three eggs, potatoes, mushrooms, shallots, white wine, and perhaps another ingredient that I'm forgetting at the moment, garnished with some olive oil and some absolutely *magnificent* garlic aioli. I actually ordered more of the aioli, not realizing that I'd be charged an extra $.75 for it. No biggie, but there it was on the bill when I was done. Not a coney island price (I think I was out the door for around $10), but not bad either, when you realize the quality of fare that they're offering. Presentation counts, too, and it was there. Lovely atmosphere, too.

So, yes: Frittata in Clawson. Go. Eat. Be glad it's there. Tell your friends. I am.
