“Are you an early riser?” asked Reneé.
Although her tone was all sweet and innocent-like, I was pretty sure I was about to find my name landing with a resonant thump high on her new volunteer recruitment list.
I laughed. “What do you need?”
“Sunday mornings we serve breakfast here at the Eagle’s,” she said, following my lead and cutting straight to the point. “And we can always use more help.”
Two days later I learned firsthand that they not only “serve breakfast,” from 8:30 to 11 a.m., which is open to the public, but it’s quite possibly the best breakfast value on the entire peninsula.
For a mere $7., that’s seven dollars, mind you, there’s always a choice of four hearty breakfasts, which include some combination of eggs, bacon, sausage, hash browns, pancakes, French toast, regular toast and/or English muffin, and perhaps a special or two thrown in, based on the “leftovers” from a previous dinner. And plenty of coffee!
The morning I arrived to help, there was also a fabulous chicken fried steak and a Denver scramble, both going like hotcakes, so to speak.
On the first Sunday of each month, the REAC group (Retired Eagles Activity Club) has a bake sale going, and an astounding amount of home-baked goodies are priced amazingly affordable—as in cheap!
Although there’s a good reason I’m not well known for my cooking, I can certainly make toast, so that was my primary job. As it turns out, I’m also adept at arranging bacon on a huge tray for the oven, and I’m pretty good at following directions. Who knew?
So yes, I’ll be returning to help out on occasion, and yes, I’ll be having breakfast there from time to time as well. For the money, you just can’t beat it. Come join us some Sunday; you’ll be glad you did!
