Denver omelet, potato chunks, sourdough toast, coffee, Darcy’s on N Lombard St.
This place used to share space with University Coffee on the corner as sort of separate-but-connected restaurants but it seems like they’ve taken over the whole lot more recently.
I actually have a Darcy’s membership card that I think would eventually net me a free meal but I don’t eat here very often and feel a little bit like an idiot for even bothering to bust it out just to save five bucks a year on breakfast.
Though the time I ate there after the time that I got the card, the waitress asked while running my check if I wanted to get a card and I said “I’ve actually got one” and she shouted “THAT IS A GOOD LIFE DECISION, MAN” and that was kind of great.
Breakfast burrito with bacon and black beans, orange wedge and lettuce garnish, with black coffee, at Christie’s on N Lombard St.
This is the closest breakfast place to my house by at least a few blocks; I eat breakfast there probably once a week on average, minding my email and Metafilter and drinking two or three cups of coffee.
I’ve got a regular french toast and eggs and bacon that I don’t even have to order when the normal guy is working, but some mornings there’s someone else on shift and I mix up my routine by ordering off the menu. So: breakfast burrito today. Not bad, not great, for getting something in my stomach it was just fine.
That’s about par for this place. It’s nice to be a regular, nice to have a place that’s reliable and comfortable, even if it’s not really a bring-folks-from-out-of-town sort of joint.
