For stage 3 of the Tour de Munch we visited Bob & Edith’s on Saturday, November 15. I’ve been here before and didn’t think anything of it, but that’s probably because it was years ago and after midnight after a night on the town.
As usual there was quite a line to wait for a table. But after about 20 minutes of waiting we got our booth. I order two eggs over medium with country fried steak. I split some of my steak with Jen C for one of her eggs Benedict. Both were very good. The gravy was rich and flavorful and the country fried steak was fried crisp but tender inside. I tried some of Amanda’s blueberry pancake and it was evident the blueberries were plump and fresh, and the pancake was cooked just the way I like it: crisped at the edges.
Bob & Edith’s has been a local favorite for a long time for a reason. It’s popularity is from more than just hype.
We visited First Watch on Sunday, October 19. Everyone at the table enjoyed their meal here. The food was spectacular. I’m not really a pancake person but the pancakes were great. They were crispy at the edges and flavorful and fluffy on the inside. I had the Parma Hash which was outstanding.
The Original Pancake House was our first stage in the Tour de Munch, starting Sunday, September 14. The Original Pancake House is a popular local restaurant and known for it’s Dutch Baby, which none of us ordered because most of us had already had it before. I can’t remember what I had because it was a couple months ago, but I’ve been there several times and the food is always good. The only thing I dislike about their pancakes is additional ingredients are served on top, not mixed with the batter.
Overall the food is not spectacular or anything special, thus the 3 star rating. But it’s a good place to eat with some novelty menu items.
