Second Breakfast, Anyone?

When we heard that Denny’s was featuring a Hobbit-inspired menu in honor of the upcoming Peter Jackson movie The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, we were so in.

The Hobbit Hole breakfast. Yum!

I had the Hobbit Hole Breakfast. The menu describes this as “two eggs fried right into the center of grilled cheddar bun halves. Served with two strips of bacon and crispy hash browns topped with melted shredded cheddar cheese and bacon.” I describe this as pure deliciousness. To really take it to the hobbity extreme, substitute a Shire sausage for the bacon. You’ll be glad you did.

Rich had the Build Your Own Hobbit Slam. He chose the pumpkin patch pancakes, seed cake French toast, Shire sausage, and eggs. He tried to order egg whites, but I told him a real Hobbit would go for sunny side up. Everything was super yummy, especially (in my opinion) the poppy seed French toast.

Denny’s Hobbit menu is only available for a limited time, so hurry in for breakfast. And second breakfast. And elevenses. And luncheon. And don’t forget tea, dinner, and supper.

As Bilbo would say, “I would give a good deal for the feel of a strong drink in my throat, and for a soft bed after a good supper!”

Can a stack of pancakes be too tall?

That was the question I asked myeslf…right before I made this stack. I came up with the answer…..only because it makes them hard to cut! I really didn’t eat all those by myself, but rest assured that in this house extra pancakes don’t go to waste. Here’s hoping you get some pancakes for yourself this week!

Now that's a stack of pancakes!


What a title, right? But that’s what we say…Let’s go to Food!  Food at Fishers Station.  If you haven’t been, just know that you will wait in a line outside -whatever the weather may be – and it will be worth the wait!  All I can really say is… it’s truly amazing how good the pancakes are. I can’t properly explain how they just melt in your mouth… or how much my mouth was watering as I was quickly taking these pictures. I didn’t plan this shoot ahead of time, but I figured if we were lucky enough to get the table by the big window, it would be easy to grab a few shots. That table wasn’t available, and we ended up at the counter in rather dim light. That turned out to be a real treat (despite the very slow shutter speeds). We got to watch the Stewart family and crew in a swarm of activity, masterfully handling the crowd (and this crazy guy with a camera, taking pictures), being ever hospitable.

Breakfast perfection included the 2-2-2: two pancakes (looks like more than 2 to me!), two eggs, and two sausage patties, and the short stack (not so short either) with an egg on top.

My suggestion: Go there (7548 Main Street, Fishers, NY), check on the hours (they are limited Thursday – Sunday), bring cash, be prepared to wait in line, and enjoy!

Is this stack really short? Nope. And its fantastic!

Hot coffee, and the mug says it all.....
