Easter Sunday Breakfast @ Doyle Street!

Doyle Street Cafe was one of our favorite places to have Sunday brunch the years before we moved to SoCal. The staff is always super friendly, and the service (in our experience) is always really good. It's a great local and loyal crowd I would say, and even if they don't know your name, they seem to remember you when you come back often enough like we did and will do again.

These past eight years, we'd visit back home once or twice a year maybe, rotating through our top three or so favorite places. We tried to make Doyle Street a stop every trip.. The staff would seem to remember us, and one person would even ask "you move back yet??" =) Suffice to say, when Sean suggested we walk over there from home this morning, I immediately agreed! This was our first meal at Doyle Street as permanent residents again! I ran to get my shoes and sweater for the walk.

Turns out the walk wasn't much further than walking to Rudy's.. just in a northerly direction.

We got seated and Sean got comfy:

I usually order the chorizo scramble or the "Joe's Special" but that's because I never know when I'm going to get to come back for another visit. Since we're locals again now, I went for the "home fries heaven" ('add bacon' option):

Add a side of corn bread, because you just HAVE TO!!
OMG cornbread!

Sean's Easter feast:
potatocake served w/ eggs scrambled, corn bread & side of bacon

We were stuffed.. Well, I was stuffed!!! You have no idea how good it felt to be sipping my coffee, relaxing, not feeling rushed to get to get to the airport, or worried about how the line at TSA would be.. Just being "home" home.

stuffed & happy
A Very Happy Easter! It's good being home!
