If you’re looking for a real, made from scratch breakfast to start your day, saunter on in to Mainstreet Restaurant. Let me tell you why. The other day I wanted pancakes. You know the kind – they fill up an entire plate and don’t come from a mix. And I didn’t want Aunt Jemima to pour on top – I wanted real butter and authentic maple syrup. Mainstreet has a wonderful variety of pancakes – fruit, sourdough, buttermilk and rye. I chose the sourdough, with it’s delicious tanginess which goes beautifully with the sweet from the syrup. In addition to the griddle favorites, they offer the usual breakfast meat choices along with applewood smoked pork loin. Since they smoke their meats in-house, I felt the pork loin would be the best choice and I was not disappointed. Delicious! Affordable! It’s my regular Saturday fix. Maybe it should become yours.
My favorite meal to eat out is breakfast. When I eat the food I love, and drink a comforting cup of coffee, it sets my day on the right path. You see, I take care of a lot of people. I’m a mother, I’m a wife, and I’m the chief cook and bottle washer at my home. Sometimes I desire the luxurious feel of someone taking care of me. I want someone to cook my eggs just like I like them, someone to fry my bacon to the perfect state of crispness. The only way to make this happen is to carve out the time, so I do.
On those days when I have that precious time set aside, I head over to Mainstreet Restaurant. Not only do they prepare the eggs and bacon just right, they have this unbelievably delicious house-made bread. They use it to make creamy, custardy french toast, what I like to refer to as ‘french toast perfection’. It’s tasty, it’s decadent, and I look forward to those mornings when I know I get to have such a treat. For a perfectly safisfying breakfast experience in Idaho Springs, I would head no where else ~ not even my own kitchen.
