We headed to our favorite local spot for breakfast yesterday morning, Lucky’s Cafe in Tremont. If you have yet to check this little spot out for coffee and breakfast, do yourself a favor and go – soon. Lucky’s not only features wonderful and tempting selections for brunch, but the atmosphere is super cozy and relaxing, which makes it ideal as a breakfast destination (especially this time of the year).
On the menu, I quickly spotted a few specials that almost swayed me, like the cinnamon crepes and pumpkin pancakes, but wasn’t in the mood for something that sweet. Instead, we split our favorite: the breakfast burrito (eggs wrapped in two tortillas covered with thick guajillo sauce, cheese and baked) and pecan-crusted bacon.
The bacon at Lucky’s alone is worth the trip regardless of location. We always say we should try to recreate this at home, but quickly realize it’s probably better that we don’t!
On this particular visit, I noticed all the little ones inside. This of course made me happy since we won’t have to sacrifice visits once the baby comes (unless of course she’s a screamer!).
On our way home, we stopped at the new cupcake shop, A Cookie and a Cupcake, from Wendy Thompson, formerly with Dante. Unfortunately, it was too early and they weren’t open quite yet (not until 11 a.m. on Sundays), but the store really does look cute (as you might expect given the concept) with lots of impressive goodies in the window.
Wendy told me via e-mail recently that they do offer a cupcake similar to the chocolate and peanut butter bar that she created for Dante, which was easily one of the best desserts we’ve had in town. We’re really looking forward to trying this.
