Breakfast is Served…again

Last week, Steve and Kelly Salah closed the front door of Rockport’s Red Skiff for the last time.  The last time until its reopening under new ownership this morning, that is.  As I drove by at 7:30 last night I found new owner, Talia Khan-Bettencourt, and some others busy at work preparing for today.  With a new sign hung by the door, that only remained closed for a mere ten days, comes the promise of more meals, mug ups, and memories.

Saved by microwave bacon…

When Sista Felicia told me she uses microwave bacon for stuff like a BLT or breakfast for the twins, not gonna lie I snubbed my nose. Really? Microwave bacon?? She swore to me that she wasn’t yankin’ my chain and I agreed to buy it and try it out!

Well now I’m obsessed. No fuss and muss with bacon just for a sandwich and Tyler can make it himself for breakfast!

Microwave bacon has changed a part of my life!

Mom and I have had breakfast there twice since landing back in the land of miracles, and it is great!  So glad to be back on Rocky Neck!

Breakfast at Atlantis — our official season starter — this Saturday

BreakfastatAtlantisEverybody has their “start of the season” favorites.  RD’s is a clam roll at Top Dog in Rockport (see Paul’s post about that here).

For Vickie, John and me it’s breakfast at Atlantis Oceanfront Cafe, which opens on Saturday.

For those of us who live here, hotels are not always top of mind, but this is one of the best  breakfast places anywhere.

Fish Cakes Benedict at Atlantis Oceanfront Cafe

Fish Cakes Benedict

Gorgeous view of the atlantic and the Twin Lights.  Warm, clean, sunny dining room.  Relaxed environment with excellent sound.  I know most people don’t consider sound high on their list of restaurant priorities, but I do.

It’s breakfast.  That means morning.  And the last thing I want to deal with first thing in the morning is loud ambient noise making it hard to talk–or even think–over breakfast.

Quiche at Atlantis Oceanfront Cafe

Quiche with friut

Of course, the food is excellent–and fun.  Spectacular sticky buns.  Home-made corned beef hash, fish cakes, quiche, etc.  They even have a Monte Cristo.

John loves the pancakes.  Vickie usually has an omelet or quiche special.  My favorite is the Lobster Eggs Benedict they often offer as a special.  Whatever you choose, there’s no need for lunch.  They’re open 7:30-11.  You might want to call and see how busy they are 978-283-0014.

Breakfast and Soup at Sailor Stan’s

breakfast at sailor stans

My mom, Jean Lefavour, came to visit for a couple of days and got to kick up her heels at the dance at the Rocky Neck Center last night, and have breakfast at Sailor Stan’s this morning.  We had the McStan’s breakfast sandwiches, which were delicious.

Don’t forget, tomorrow from 3:00-5:00 be at Sailor Stan’s for the Love of Soup Best of Cape Ann Soup Competition, with proceeds to benefit the Center at Rocky Neck.  There is still room for a few more soup entries, if you have a great soup you’d like to enter into the competition.  If so, email EJ at khanstudio@comcast.net with your name and type of soup you’re entering.  For soup lovers, this is going to be a special treat, and it is still chilly enough to really enjoy a great variety of soups made by the best local soup makers.   Winner gets a $25 gift certificate to Sailor Stan’s.

Sailor Stan’s – A Very Cool Place for Breakfast

sailor stans

In case you didn’t know, Sailor Stan’s is open for breakfast Saturday and Sunday mornings from 7:30 until 11:30-12:00.  As season starts coming in, they will be open more mornings.  Sailor Stan’s is one of the coolest most colorful artsy spots on Cape Ann, which always reminds me of Key West.  Karen and Wayne are the nicest people, and will cook you a special breakfast treat.  Wayne has a great display of his bold paintings on display, so your eyes as well as your mouth will be busy.
