You could hardly find a more satisfying, full-bodied breakfast than at this smart and busy joint just shy of the entrance to Perkins Cove. A lighthearted mix of retro advertising signs adorns the walls of this bright, open, and very bustling dining room. You won't find tired standards here—the only pancakes are German potato. The Oscar Madison omelet combines crabmeat with asparagus and Swiss, topped with a béarnaise sauce. For a really decadent start, opt for the Banana
Foster: pecan-coated, cream cheese–stuffed French toast with a side of sautéed bananas in rum syrup. Next door, at the Cafe Amore, you can pick up sandwiches and other light fare.
