Travelling from Manchester NH to Brooklyn last Sunday am we needed a breakfast stop. I had always been intrigued by the idea of Johnny cakes, made with white corn, since at least the 80s but never had a chance to try. Google led us to Jiggers diner in Greenwich RI, not far off I95 and some very delicious johnnycakes. As I said they are made of white corn - these are rather thick pancakes with a creamy inside, reminiscent of good grits, and a delicious crunch and well fried exterior. These were great as a base for some fried eggs , in one of their "benedict" concoctions or with syrup. Its a cool and friendly traditional diner and worth a stop in the area. Other breakfast dishes looked great too. The complementary muffins were meh however.
