This morning Nolan and I went to J&M Diner for breakfast.
Nolan’s family has a long history with the owners of this diner, and many of them worked here at one time or another. This was only the second time I had ever eaten here but it was just as good as I remembered.
There are several criteria that Nolan and I look for in a great breakfast place.
- great coffee
- quality homefries – thick chunks that are slightly crispy
- creative specials
- quick service
J&M has all of these things!
Breakfast is the hardest thing for me to order at a restaurant because there isn’t a breakfast food I don’t love. I could easily eat eggs, bacon, pancakes and home fries all day long. After much debate I went with one of their specials which was a western style omelet with bacon on a plain bagel with home fries on the side.
I promise I only managed to eat half of this and the rest is in the fridge. It was delicious! The eggs were fluffy and the veggies inside were cooked perfectly, with a little bit of crunch. The bagel was toasted so it successfully supported all the insides.
Nolan went with a buffalo chicken omelet with bacon. (Shocker)
He also only managed to eat half before throwing in the towel. I did steal a bite and it was very good. If it wasn’t riddled with blue cheese I would have loved it!
It was certainly a great way to start my Tuesday. I plan to get in a run, some shopping, and a little housework on the rest of my unexpected day off.
