Ben and I finally got our act together last month and made our way to this super trendy little breakfast spot in Athens that we'd been talking about for months. By the time we finally dragged ourselves out of bed and made the 40 minute drive to this popular restaurant, it was approaching 10:00 and to say that I was hungry, would be an understatement. When we walked through the door, an absurdly polite host greeted us with an infectious smile and informed us that there was a 45 minute wait for a table for 2! Did I mention yet, how hungry I was?
I have to admit that in a moment of weakness, our hunger took over and we considered ditching the whole idea of a swanky breakfast and fleeing to the nearest Waffle House and stuffing our bellies full of mediocre waffles. I couldn't help but wonder how much better these eggs must be if all these people were willing to wait for nearly an hour for their breakfast though. In the end - our curiosity got the best of us and we decided to join the hungry masses and wait it out to see just how great this restaurant really was.
I know you're dying to know what we thought of our long awaited breakfast so without further ado - here goes. Without going into details - we thought it was a good breakfast but ... probably not worth the 45 minute wait. Admittedly, the assessment of my breakfast was probably skewed by the fact that I was completely hangry by the time I was finally eating my food. It was a descent breakfast but probably similar to what I would have made for myself at home. Despite the fact that I was uninspired by my long awaited breakfast, I would still probably go back and give this little restaurant another try. (Next time, I'll bring snacks.) 🤪
What about you? Would you wait 45 minutes for a table at a restaurant to eat breakfast? I'm always up for trying new restaurants - even breakfast spots - but 45 minutes seems a little excessive even for the fluffiest of pancakes.
As for now, we're back to making breakfast at home on Saturday morning. These Croissant Breakfast Sandwiches are really good and certainly worthy of staying in bed for an extra 45 minutes. I can get up and make these tasty little breakfast sandwiches in the time that it took us to drive to the popular little breakfast joint. Delicious croissant breakfast sandwiches + more sleep = happy Amy.
Croissant Breakfast Sandwiches
2 Tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
salt and pepper
12 small croissant rolls
1 (6 ounce) package sharp cheddar cheese slices
1 (9 ounce) package deli ham
Place sandwiches in a greased 9x13" pan. Cover with foil. Bake 15 minutes.
So the funniest part of the whole weekend breakfast ordeal was the fact that after we waiting the full 45 minutes to be seated at our table and another 5 minutes for a server to approach our table, my patient husband still hadn't decided what he wanted to eat. He literally sent the server away for another 10 minutes while he looked over the menu. 😂 45 minutes of standing in the waiting area of the restaurant and he never even thought about glancing at the menu to decide what he might want to order when we finally got a table. Clearly - he wasn't as hungry as I was. 🤣
