This weekend, my dad and I went to New York City.  While we were there we visited the The Intrepid Museum, stopped at my dad’s office and saw our friend Kendah, who was visiting from Paris.  But first, we were hungry and needed somewhere close by and good to try, so we decided to eat at The Smith.  My dad had eaten there before and said it was good.

The Smith serves breakfast, lunch and dinner and it’s very hip!

It was 11:30 and I was pretty hungry so I decided instead of the brunch menu, it was time to order from the lunch menu.  Here’s what I had:

THE BURGER DELUXE

It was delicious and it was BIG!  I was amazed that I could finish it.  The Fries were golden and crispy.

PS: At the Intrepid Museum we took a tour of The USS Growler Submarine. It was really cool to see what life was like under the sea.  But, if the Growler was a Sunday Diners restaurant, I’d give the bathroom zero stars! Luckily, it’s just part of the exhibit. 🙂

Blind Charlie’s – A Basket Full Of Good Food!!!!!!!

Blind Charlie’s Cafe

74 Westchester Avenue, Pound Ridge, New York

Blind Charlie’s is one of my favorite spots. Their breakfasts are so good, that even MY MOM came out for it!

Blind Charlie’s is named after a guy named Charlie who was a great basket maker in the 1800’s.  Now the name is known for awesome food in Pound Ridge.

It is very popular with motorcyclists and kids!  You might even see some cool bikes when you’re there — they’re all parked outside — which is where we had breakfast.  Outside seating is only available in the summer 🙂

I asked our host, Laura,“What is the most popular breakfast at Blind Charlie’s?”

She said, “The deluxe is probably our most popular.  It’s two eggs, choice of ham, bacon or sausage, pancakes or French toast AND hash browns or a potato pancake!”

That’s definitely a lot of food!

I had chocolate chip pancakes, bacon, and a chocolate milk.  It was terrific!  MY MOM had French toast and a cappuccino.  She even let me taste the foam – it was foamy and good!
