While my boys could simply live on their shaved ice, I’m pretty excited that Rockport’s Hula Moon is now open for breakfast. The breakfast and the view are great…the owners couldn’t be nicer! Go pay them a visit.
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.
I caught Rusty and Ingrid with their family after breakfast at Sugar Magnolia’s.
Also check out their web site at RustyandIngrid.
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!
Sailor Stan’s is now open Tuesday through Sunday from 7:00 am until 12:00 or so. Stop in for some of Wayne’s happy blueberry pancakes, awesome omelettes, specials of the day, and new offerings of homemade muffins. Rocky Neck – 1 Wonson Street – the cool funky place filled with local characters, good food and fun.
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!

Rick and I went to Sunday breakfast at Mile Marker. Since fellow contributor Nichole has mentioned the pool I decided to take a peek and it does look very inviting. For more information please go to http://www.CapeAnnMarina.com
For your breakfast or early lunch enjoyment – they will also be open Memorial Day.
What will Aaron come up with next to amaze and dazzle? Stay tuned, or go find out for ya’self!
Looking to have an awesome Valentine’s Day breakfast while helping a great cause at the same time, then put this on your calendar for Friday morning. Having experienced The Gloucester House Breakfast Buffet this past Sunday during the Valentine’s Art Show, I can tell you, it is not to be missed.
Oh My!….Have you tried this heavenly bread yet? …Put it on your grocery list this week…Best Whole Grain Bread I have ever tasted!
Everybody 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.
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.
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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
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.
“Olivia’s by the Sea”, formerly “Amelia’s” (near Good Harbor Beach), is under new management! It has been taken over by the same people who run the new Cape Ann Diner in Brown’s Mall. It has been renovated, and work will continue until the summer. The new layout includes an informal, tray-serving-style dining area, designed to be comfortable for beach-goers:
and a smaller, more formal area where there will be waiter service and a more comprehensive menu.
Outside, the plan is to have an ice cream window on one side of the outdoor eating area. In short, something for everyone!
On Wednesday, the restaurant opened for a breakfast test run “on the house” so that a small number of people could try the food and meet the staff. I was invited, so I showed up for a late breakfast. The menu has a wide selection of scrumptious sounding breakfast food, with reasonable prices (although not as inexpensive as the Cape Ann Diner, which is to be expected for the location and style). I opted for a scrambled egg with bacon, home fries, and beans, with a mug of decaf coffee.
They will be opening fully for business sometime next month. I look forward to it!
Practically since I arrived in Gloucester, people have been telling me I have to try breakfast at George’s (178 Washington Street). For one reason or another, I had not made it until this past Sunday when I had breakfast there after Mass with some parishioners. From among the many appetizing things on the menu, I chose “breakfast boats”:
That’s three potato halves, hollowed out and filled in with scrambled eggs and bacon, topped with shredded cheese and served with salsa and sour cream. Wow. It tasted as good as it looks! However, it was twice what I could eat, so I ended up with leftovers for later. Definitely worth ordering! We were all satisfied with our meals. I had tried a bite of someone’s plate-sized pineapple coconut pancake, and it was delicious too…
While we ate, I saw this unusual sight:
I’ve never seen a sign like that on a car before. The owner must have real problems with people trying to get friendly with those beautiful hounds. It reminds me of this scene from “The Pink Panther Strikes Again” (which I just watched again):
