Where We Were Eating: Tom Sawyer's Restaurant & Pastry Shop
Even a lodge-looking breakfast and bakery joint doesn't fool you fat kids. As Monday's lone commenter correctly guessed, we were eating at Tom Sawyer's Restaurant & Pastry Shop.
Known for their extreme portions and fresh, homemade cooking, Tom Sawyer's does it like Grandma used to. Or in my case, the way Grandma prefers: someone else cooking for her.
And if your Grandma needs some convincing to step into someone else's kitchen for breakfast, the restaurant won our Best Sunday Brunch last year. They've been making traditional American meals in their Boca joint for more than 25 years. If that's not a solid resume line, you can tell Grandma to stay home.
Go in head first and order the Breakfast in a Pot. If that's too much, go for the Cinnamon French Toast. You'll thank me later.
