They have their own private labels (like Kirkland to Costco).No job lots. They're the parent company of Trader Joe's.

They are taking over the spots of Fresh & Easy. Some stores will be Trader Joe's...some will be Aldi.

My daughter Emily and I stopped at a local diner for breakfast before food shopping.
Mine:

Her's:

She was very happy because she didn't have to ask for a separate plate for her eggs. Some places put everything on the same plate and she has to ask for an extra.

Agnes, nothing like poached eggs and hash. Good idea eating before you went food shopping, you lowered your food bill by $100 by doing so.............Happy Mothers day...........pnwc

Me, neither.  My mom used to make it with braised pork, cornmeal, and spices/herbs.  I have no idea how authentic it was but I liked it.

My brother took us, his family and Mom out for Brunch at Akasha in Downtown, Culver City.
 
They had a special Mother's Day Brunch Menu.
 
It was difficult to choose but I chose the Croque Madame.  The description sounded right, and it included Mornay Sauce.
 
I couldn't eat it.  Their idea of Mornay Sauce was more like a creamed horseradish sauce, probably right out of the squeeze bottle.
 
Along side of the sandwich was a stack of what I call weeds.  I took a fork full and Sharon laughed at my expression.  I told her to taste them.  When she did, I laughed even harder at her expression.
 
The dressing was nothing more than pure lemon juice.  No oil, salt or pepper.
 
Sharon had a burger which she liked.  The others had...
 
Chiliquilies, brisket hash with a poached egg, eggs with lox and potato pancakes and a bowl of granola with fresh berries.
 
I think the granola or the hash was the best of the choices.
 
In the bowl of granola were some berries no one at the table had ever seen before.  I asked what they were and found out they were Himalayan Mulberries.  I'd never seen any kind of mulberry before.  I tasted it.  I guess they're more for decoration than eating.
 
I'm hoping their every day menu is better than their special Mother's Day menu.

Bummer!  Sometimes modern twists on classics are quite ill founded.    Brisket hash sounds yummy, though.
 
Here's a croque monsieur I got earlier this year.  The greens look like yours, but they were properly "dressed."

 
Here's another croque monsieur I liked.

What you call "weeds" is the same salad I call "stick and twigs"! Seems like in bag salad they call it "spring mix". For some reason, every in-house catering company in every arena I've ever worked serves it standard with every meal. It's certainly not my favourite, but I grew up eating dandelion greens (among others), so it's not awful to me. I usually have some kind of vinaigrette on them.

love2bake, you need to go to Nini's for breakfast, it's the best Roadfood type for breakfast in the Bay area, it's between Burlingame and San Mateo, in a Residental area. Google it, you wont be sorry. I've eaten there at least 50 times.

You're right, Chewy.  I've had it bookmarked for a long time but haven't gone, partially because a friend of mine who also loves breakfast doesn't care for it.  However, I don't like some of her favorite places, either!  Thank you for reminding me--I'll get on it and report back!

Yesterday I went to the Old German Bakery in <<<Hoboken>>>....



It's only a few years old but it's very popular and has become part of the community....



As I've mentioned once or twice <<<Hoboken>>> is quite the "foodie"town. Pow!...

I had a very beautiful & delicious raspberry quark comb....


Fresh from scratch...not too sweet. It looks as big as a manhole cover but it's a nice tidy size. So pretty I felt guilty when I cut it...




I got over it.

So, I took your advice and went to Nini's this morning and got this:

 
It's not a traditional Joe's Special, in that they use breakfast sausage, and I think the original uses ground beef.  But it was tasty, and there was enough for 2 - 3 more meals for my puny appetite.  I loved the vibe in there--very easy, fun, my order came out fast, and the service was excellent.  It was a little weird getting into and out of the neighborhood and onto the freeway, and my GPS was not at its best.

CC - those are the cutest cookies!!!  Hell, yes--I'm a pastry enabler.  Notice how I had veggies and protein for breakfast, myself.    A saint, really.

NYC has many single menu item restaurant themes..

One happens to be Croque Monsieur.

La Maison Du Croque Monsieur is a very pretty restaurant. It doesn't serve the most exciting Croque...but saying La Maison Du Croque Monsieur has to put you in a good mood. Even if otherwise miserable or cranky or whatever...

Today, however, I went to a different place and got an almond croissant.  In addition to the delicious almond filling inside, they put more of it on top and pressed sliced almonds into it before baking.  It was a fine thing.

Hardees always have above average biscuits.  I always get the sausage and biscuit with four grape jellies.  I get two and share them with my ugly dog Angel.  She enjoys them even with the grape jelly more than me.

It turns out that the Carl's Jr. in my area does not have biscuit sandwiches at all so I went elsewhere and got this (sorry for the blur).  It's hard scrambled eggs (my apologies to everyone who likes them soft) on top of country potatoes with bacon, onions, and mushrooms.  It will also be what's for breakfast (or dinner) for me at least another day!

I spent all of Monday from noon until 6:30 pm in the ER. By the time they decided to keep me overnight, the kitchen closed and I really didn't care to eat anyway after being poked, prodded and tested. About 5 am I began to think about food so as soon as room service opened at 6:30 I placed a call for breakfast! Two very nice plump breakfast sausages and an English muffin! Yum!! Charged me for another day of tests.
