Mrs. Rowes, Saunton Va
I realize that Mrs. Rowes does not seem to be anywhere as good as it used to be. But, the good news is that they still serve a wonderful breakfast and the portions are huge. We stayed at the motel next door and did not go there for dinner as we were not that pleased the last time that we had lunch there. But a large sign in front declared that they had been chosen by Southern Living Magazine as serving one of the best seven breakfasts in the South.
Three of us decided to have breakfast there yesterday and enjoyed every bite. The pancake that I tasted was light and fluffy and delicious. The butter was melted and hot and served in small cup to be poured over it. Someone else had eggs, delicious home fries, a huge slice of terrific country ham and thickly sliced homemade bread, toasted.
I saw that they had regular sized orders and "one and a half" orders of the sausage gravy and biscuits. I decided that the regular order must be fairly small so ordered that and some fried green apples on the side. When the waitress put my plate in front of me, I could not believe my eyes. The biscuits were huge. Two of them filled the plate and were loaded with gravy. The gravy was good and the biscuits were outstanding. (I was able to finish only half the order.) The coffee was served in a nice insulated pot so that we did not have to wait for refills and the sweet tea was served in a carafe.
It was a great experience.............I wish the breafast places around my area were as good!
