Bread and Ink Cafe (3610 SE Hawthorne Blvd)

A couple of weeks ago I went to Bread and Ink Cafe for breakfast. I had two giant whole wheat blueberry pancakes. They tasted like the whole wheat pancakes my mom used to make, with all whole wheat flour, not very sweet- but tangy, with buttermilk.

I went back with a friend this past Saturday and was immediately impressed with their special of the day: Monte Cristo French Toast. That is: Bolo bread, stuffed with ham and Gruyere cheese, soaked in spiced custard and grilled to perfection. Served with Rhubarb Red Onion Marmalade and fruit kabob. Of course that's what I ordered.

I also ordered a glass of grapefruit juice, which was perfectly fresh squeezed, no sugar or color added. Totally worth the $3.95 price.

The french toast was SO good, the cheese was just enough without being overpowering. It was grilled to perfection, exactly as their menu said. And the Rhubarb Red Onion Marmalade was the perfect complement.

I love this place. It's not too crowded, has excellent food and the walls are decorated with lovely prints like this:

I will definitely go back again to try out their other specials... and their regular menu items. Yum!
