There is Good. Then there’s Great. And finally, there is Excellent. And that is just the descriptor we would use after dining at Excellent Breakfast, In Harrisville, RI. We have all heard it before, “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day”, so you might as well give yourself a meal that you deserve! No run of the mill burnt toast and greasy potatoes. Treat your first meal as though you are setting the tone for the day to come. Want an Excellent day? Have an Excellent Breakfast.
It seems as though Excellent Breakfast is giving the town of Harrisville exactly what they needed.An upscale diner-esque breakfast experience in an absolutely adorable setting. Tucked up into the northern corner of the state makes for a beautiful scenic drive, if you are coming from out of town.
Let’s start right out of the gate with my personal favorite breakfast food; pancakes. This classic stack was dotted with melty chocolate chips, dusted with powdered sugar and crowned with a golden square of warm butter. Do not forget, not all pancakes are created equally, and these are certainly superior. Thick, yet fluffy and perfectly sweet.
Hats off to whomever thought of making dessert acceptable at breakfast.
As I was saying, Excellent Breakfast is not your average diner. So do not expect an average breakfast sandwich. Served on *literally* our favorite kind of bread, a Portuguese sweet bolo that has been buttered and pressed on the griddle. Melted cheese, two eggs with runny yolk (yes, so very important), and adorned with the thickest, most tender cuts of bacon I have ever sunk my teeth into. It makes me wonder, at what thickness does bacon become considered pork belly in true form? Beats me! Stack it on there and feed it to me!
What does your breakfast look like? If it's not like this, it's not good enough.
For another sweet confection, you might want to sit down for this, we had Allie’s Donut French Toast. One of my all time favorite donuts ever, sliced down the middle, egg dipped and griddled to sizzling sweet perfection. Powdered sugar flurried on top and topped with a dollop of whipped cream. It may be indulgent, but it is worth every sugary sweet bite.
An Allie's Donut swiped right on Tinder and met a real nice guy named French Toast. This is their delicious baby.
We ended our meal savory, with the breakfast quesadilla. Two corn tortillas hugging together black beans and melted cheese, tucked beneath two sunny side up eggs, salsa verde and a sprinkling of cilantro. Bust open one of those yolks and get the full flavorful effect in each bite. My favorite part was the colorful and bright salsa verde, to spice up with classic dish.
Never settle for average. You are not regular, you’re not boring! So as a rule of thumb, never consume dull food. Never! Not a single drab item on the menu here, so no need to fret.
Thank you to our friends at Excellent Breakfast for welcoming us in and feeding us such incredibly delicious food. We will be making our way out to you again so soon!
