Late Breakfast

PhotoStory Friday
Hosted by Cecily and Izzy ‘N Emmy


After an “early dinner” we went to a “late breakfast.” We tried to get on the senior’s schedule but it was hard. We have two teenagers. There was only one place to go to breakfast in that area, Steve’s Diner. It’s the kind of place I like, great food and great prices. I wish we could have stayed for dinner too. The country fried steak sounds good.


It was a place run by a first generation American who’s obviously loves what he does. And the food is fantastic, did I say that already?


But part of the charm is that Mr. Steve runs his place like he runs his home. With a tight fist. This patron behind Frank was having a discussion with Mr. Steve about seating arrangements when Mr. Steve finally yelled, “Then sit on the floor!” Which caused the husband to both cringe and laugh at the same time.


This waitress rushed by yelling at Mr. Steve, “You’re killing me!”

I love it. After breakfast the husband takes out his wallet to pay and was told that they only accept cash. Which then forced Frank to break out his wallet too. It’s an authentic atmosphere for sure.


And the food? Lots of it, homemade and delicious.

The husband was praying over the food while I was snapping photos. Lord forgive me.


And my little girl? Well, she can eat. Just like her mamma and her grandma. She ordered two huge (I mean huge) pancakes, a breakfast sandwich on a bagel and some hashbrowns. She also ate some of my steak. Yes, I ordered a sirloin steak with two eggs. I have to step up my cardio workout this week.


When it was all over with,all that was left was this lone breakfast biscuit.

The next time I complain about my weight, I want you to slap me.


  1. Yum! Breakfast is my favorite meal to eat out. This diner looks like my kind of place. (I have to admit I have never seen pancakes that big!!)

  2. What a great story. And those are some great shots of the food. made me very hungry! I can’t believe that the owner yelled that at a customer. I would have laughed so hard if I’d been there!
    Fun post!
    If you’d like to stop by my blog I’m at Cake Crumbs.

  3. What a fun story, and look at the size of those PANCAKES! I think they make them for lumberjacks! LOL!

    And Mr. Steve sounds a bit like the “Soup Nazi” on “Frazier.” He btter be careful or people might “talk.” 😉

    Loved reading this and wish I had been with you to partake in that delicious breakfast.

    Happy Foodie Friday…

  4. It looks like a wonderful breakfast! The kind that will keep you from eating for the next three days. I loved your pictures. Have a great day.

  5. Now don’t tell my that pretty little girl ate all that food! where does she put it all?

    that breakfast looks extra delicious — and how fun, to have had great homemade breakfast food, AND a floor show at the same time.
    What fun!

  6. Appetizing photos at the diner and wonderful description. I, too recently enjoy photographing my food both while we are out and something that I cook, to capture the moment on film as well as preserve it in my memory of an enjoyable time.
