Chris and I are are always on the look out for nice places to get breakfast whether it is locally or when we are on the road traveling. This week will bring a sales road trip and guess what? I get to go along this time. The plan was to get a rental car since I need to get back from Ohio to leave for North Carolina for my trip with my bestie. It’s complicated. Our lives are very complicated right now. Chris had the car all reserved and when we went to pick it up on Saturday they could not provide the car that we had reserved. Instead we ended up with this. It’s huge. I am sure the gas mileage will be fabulous. At least it is the right color, right? My poor mom is going to have to have a stepladder to get inside when we take her out.
The good thing is we found a new local place that offers breakfast locally. The salon manager at Kush Spa and Salon, Paula, always lets me know the latest and greatest places to eat. She gave me the tip on Sugarpie Bakery in Belmond and that was a great tip. This past week I had my hair appointment with Paula and she told me that the 1910 Grille in the Historic Park Inn was serving breakfast daily and I knew what was on my weekend list when Chris got home. After we picked up the huge red truck we headed downtown to grab a bite. Chris had made online reservations earlier so we were all set.From the moment you step into the hotel it is an experience that is savored. It is such a beautiful place and the renovations have kept the space as authenic and true to the Frank Lloyd Wright style as possible and visitors come from far and wide to experience the hotel in all its glory.
Each space echoes the clean lines of the architect and I love how the patterns are carried out throughout even the 1910 Grille area.
The breakfast menu is full and offers a wide range of offerings to please every palate. I was happy to see that you could order Ala Carte as well. Sometimes what I want does not fit into the regular menu so it is nice to be able to have the option to add options from that portion of the menu.Chris chose the Gyro Skillet which boasted plenty of gyro meat, tomato, feta, spinach and tzakiki sauce. Chris omitted the onion and they were able to accommodate. He also added a couple of eggs on top of the skillet for a dollar each as our waitress told us that they did not include any eggs with the skillets.
I chose the Tuscan Omelet which was filled with bacon, tomato, spinach artichoke dip, and parmesan cheese. It also included a choice of breakfast potatoes or hash browns and toast and I wisely chose the potato option and the lovely wheat berry toast. The servings were huge and the one thing that I especially love about the 1910 Grille is that they are one of those restaurants that take your leftovers to the kitchen to box them up. Somehow that seems so much classier than sliding them into a styrofoam box table side, doesn’t it? The breakfast choices were both delicious and I am thrilled that we have another local option for breakfast dining. The place was hopping the morning we were there with several large parties being served and our wait time for our food was a bit long. I don’t mind waiting for good food and it was worth the wait but if you are expecting a quick fast food experience this is not the place to go. Enjoy the experience and the ambience of the place and start your day out right with a lovely breakfast.
