Grubgirl had a hankering for some biscuits in sausage gravy. Along with her hungover friend HH, we descended upon this site, across from that bar, Fly. Decent, diverse crowd of folks in a traditional diner. We were about to be seated when we decided to check out Blue Jay’s Cafe up the street.
Average cost of items on BJC’s menu was $2-3 more than at Eddies. We headed back to Eddie’s.
Sat at the counter, fast, friendly service from the family. Lots of combos, and we weren’t sure where to start. A tempting special was listed for $5.15, included 1 egg, sausage, and some pancakes. I noted that fresh squeezed OJ was over $2.00…hm…best to get water, I thought.
If you happen to need coffee in the morning, Eddie’s serves you with a ton of “real” mugs – that is, it looked like several years’ worth of donated, kitschy mugs.
I finally ordered a Grill special. 2 eggs, 3 sausage links, for $5.65. The grill specials include grits or hash browns (I had the hash browns, which just the right type of crispiness. None of this au naturel diced potatoes crap.), and then toast or home-made biscuits. I got the biscuits — 2 of ’em, kinda tiny, but did the trick. My friend got English muffins – toasted perfectly.
No sausage gravy but my meal was perfect. I left with even a little bit of hash brown & egg left!
