Congratulations to the six New England restaurants that were chosen by Food Network Magazine for their great breakfasts!
The July/August 2010 Food Network Magazine edition features an appetizing article entitled "50 States, Fifty Breakfasts" with one breakfast place in each state getting a hearty mention --including a specialty dish. Honors in Connecticut go to Kitchen Little, 135 Greenmanville Ave., in the lively seaport town of Mystic, for its "Portuguese Fisherman" dish -- scrambled eggs with ground chourico and linguica sausages and cheese accompanied by a "soft toasted and buttered Portuguese muffin." The best Maine breakfast goes to Boynton-McKay Food Co., at 30 Main St., in the idyllic mid-Maine coastal town of Camden, for fresh buttermilk pancakes. In Massachusetts, Craigie on Main Street at 853 Main St. in the academic city of Cambridge, (Harvard University, MIT) gets the notch for "airy cake doughnuts" (only made on Sundays). Top New Hampshire breakfast centers on the fantastic Littleton Diner in the heart of thriving downtown Littleton (145 Main St.), for the "Littleton Buckwheat Pancakes." The little state of Rhode Island comes up with a big breakfast winner at Jigger's Diner at 145 Main St. in posh and leafy East Greenwich, for its Johnnycakes. Last but not least is Vermont's Penny Cluse Cafe at 169 Cherry St. in the wonderful small city of Burlington (a college town beautifully situated on Lake Champlain), for its "Penny Cluse" -- biscuits enhanced by a herb creamy gravy of spinach, basil and parsley, and accompanied with two eggs any style and home fries.
Enough to make you hungry? Please go check out these places, and let us know what you think. Additionally, we would like to also recommend the "10 Favorite Breakfast Places in New England" article at our New England Vacations Facebook Fan Page . We love breakfast while traveling New England, and are confident that you'll find "no egg" on this feature story!
In closing, we highly recommend picking up a copy of the July/August Food Network publication. In addition to its wonderful, aforementioned breakfast article, this edition is packed with some amazing-looking summer recipes. We'll be attempting to make the "crunchy lemonade chicken drumsticks" as soon as possible - yum!
