Crayons, comics, and chocolate chip star pancakes for the boys. The 1621 (turkey) sandwich and juice for my husband, and a spicy apple and brie omelet and hot coffee for me. The boys were in a good mood and full of animated conversation. Lovely.

    I believe I will try this out TODAY with my four year old and his five year old companion. This sounds perfect!

    This place sounds terrific. I’m always looking for new places to dine out. Friendly’s is getting old–although, still the kids fave. Hope to see more suggestions!

    We used to like Brickway on Wickenden. Is that still open? Blue Elephant may be giving them a run for their money.

    We went on Saturday for breakfast, and we loved it!! My son swallowed his very fluffy and delicious pancakes. My daughter loved the jewelry hanging on the walls and my very picky husband loved his made-to-order omelet. Very good! Great recommendation ~ Thank you!

    Tina, I believe the owner of the Blue Elephant used to work at the Brickway, and I know the Chef was chef at the Brickway, back when it was good. Yes, the Blue Elephant is giving the Brickway a run for their money. You should stop in. The food is great, and there is a wonderful art gallery in one of the dining rooms. I’ve eaten there half a dozen times (I’m not local or I’d eat there every week), and everything I’ve had was wonderful.
