Main Street has always been one of my favorite places to eat and to play and since I live so close now, one by one, I am trying lots of new places. My friend Vicki and I were trying to decide between
Sauce on Hampton and Novel Cafe and this time Novel Cafe won. Don't worry though Sauce; next time we'll visit you! The Novel Cafe definitely has something for everyone, not to mention the library of books and mis-matched furniture that makes it feel
so warm and homey. Servers are super friendly and make excellent recommendations too! All dishes are prepared using only the freshest and most delicious ingredients from the eggs to the gourmet coffees. The Breakfast Burrito ($10.95) blew my socks off! Three
scrambled eggs with black beans, homemade pico de gallo (ask for more), guacamole ,jack cheese, and your choice of bacon (tons of it) or Mexican chorizo are stuffed inside a massive flour tortilla. This is enough to split and comes with roasted potatoes or
fresh fruit. We also had Magical Meyer's Breakfast Tacos. ($10.95) Three corn tortillas with scrambled eggs, potatoes, veggie sausage, jack cheese, guacamole, sour cream, grilled onion, and homemade pico de gallo are served with your choice of potatoes.
I'll let you guess who had what. But both were fantastic! House Blend Coffee ($2.50) is rich in flavor, and refills are plentiful. So take a friend or a novel and sit back and enjoy some delicious food and amazing service. The Novel Cafe 2507 Main Street,
