I was in Clarence New York meeting a relative for brunch. One of the places suggested was the Campfire Grill. I liked what I saw on their menu and decided to give it a try. This was a great decision, as their food is phenomenal!
Fenton Cafe Coffee and Crepes
In the downtown area of Silver Spring Maryland, Fenton Cafe has been serving fantastic crepes for over a decade. I don't get there often enough, but when I do the food is always fantastic.
Call Your Mother – A Jew-ish Deli
I first had Call Your Mother bagels at a charity I volunteer at, as they regularly donate bags of bagels. Their bagels were quite distinctive, so I made a mental note to eat at one of their locations. As good as their bagels are, fresh from the oven they are even better.
After an early morning hike on Theodore Roosevelt Island, I was looking for a place nearby to eat brunch. A quick search turned up Ruthie's All Day in nearby Arlington. The name made it sound like a good, local, hole in the wall. So that is where I went. Ruthie's is certainly local, but hole in the wall it is not.
