About me:..CONTACT US: email@example.com..
we here in The Breakfast Club like eggs. we like bread toasted. crispy bacon for some. pancakes for none. homefries golden and brown. one of us likes our tea extremely hot. the others like good coffee. we are picky. demanding. ruthless reviewers of breakfast establishments in portland, maine. we are The Breakfast Club.
breakfast is the most important meal of the day. and portland, maine has more fried eggs per capita than any other city that begins with the letter "p." have you ever found yourself stressed out about deciding where to get sunday brunch? do you often feel alone because you think you're the only person out there who doesn't understand what the big deal is about pancakes? have you ever gone to a reputable diner (like one on commercial street that begins with "b" and ends with "ecky's" for example) and realized that it was a tragic mistake? do you get slightly homicidal when your over-hard eggs are even the slightest bit runny? well then we're the folks for you!
last year we realized that one thing that portland was missing was a hard-core, no funny business, balls-to-the-walls truth-telling team of breakfast experts who aren't afraid to tell it like it is! we prefer to remain anonymous so that the servers aren't tipped off when they see us scribbling frantically on a note pad, so don't try to figure out who we are. sometimes there are 4 of us, sometimes 12...but there will always be 3 -- the core crew of The Breakfast Club.
every week we'll happen upon a different breakfast joint -- be it fancy, divey, greasy, or free -- and let you know how it all goes. the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
you can thank us later for all of our fabulous recommendations -- no longer will you have to suffer through condiment shortages, scabby-looking fritattas, or cold tea!
we accept all major credit cards if you'd like to make a generous donation for our invaluable advice. we're also currently accepting applications for the weekly "guest critic" spot...send us a message if you're interested and we'll schedule an interview.
.. .. .. .. ..
Who I'd like to meet:free refills. hard eggs. easy eggs. rye bread. wheat bread. hollandaise. farmers. potters. writers. environmentalists. people who like lemons. anyone who is as hardass about breakfast as us. people who prefer savory to sweet in the a.m. if you're someone who ever orders lunch items at brunch, don't even THINK about contacting us. we are The Breakfast Club.
