Photos: Real Food Cafe visit

January 7, 2010

I just can’t resist taking pictures whenever we visit Breakfast with Nick-favorite Real Food Cafe, especially when we try something new there. Every time we travel home to see family in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Real Food is a mandatory stop (in a good way!). It was especially cozy over a snowy Christmas holiday.

So here are the specials we tried. Up top is a Greek Benedict, with lamb, spinach, and feta cheese added to the standard eggs benedict lineup.

And here’s the pumpkin french toast. They used a dense pumpkin bread – I never thought of using that for french toast – and topped it with a cinnamon whipped creamy. Deliciously sweet, warm and thick, and perfect for a cold winter day.

By the way… congrats to Frank, Renee, and the crew for getting voted the Best Breakfast in Grand Rapids by readers of Grand Rapids Magazine! Frank showed me the article. As if there was any doubt!
