Breakfast worth the trip! Mon, 02/22/10 2:14 PM (permalink)
The breakfast that awaited us at The Coffee Cup, Pensacola, FL, was well worth the 1 1/2 hr. ride to get there!  The omelettes are truly incredible...have never seen one made quite like this!  The biscuits came straight from the oven, and were such a good size that we brought one home.  Do yourself a favor...sit at the counter and watch the artistry of the cook, who whips up one plate after another without a single written order.  Arrive before 10 a.m.  on weekends to avoid too big a crowd.

    nchhome1, welcome to Roadfood!! 

    Can you provide some more details?  Would love to hear what kind of omelette you had and the style of preparation that made it stand out for you!

      Welcome to Roadfood!  I have only been there once, but I am also a fan of The Coffee Cup.  Did you happen to try the Nassau Grits?   Or the Spanish sauce on your omelet?

        The eggs were mixed in a stainless steel milkshake machine for several minutes.  Then the frothy mixture was quickly cooked and flipped in a very hot, well oiled pan.  The next step was "pouring" the partially cooked omelette on the grill where it magically puffed up.  The cook placed some American cheese on one half, then folded it over.  It was cooked on the grill for quite some time, in fact, my husband was sure that it was going to be dry and overcooked.  But no...it was great!  I also watched the cook make a bacon omlette the same way, although a veggie version was not made with the beat up egg mixture, so was not as fluffy.

        Enjoy!  NCH

          Being a Northern girl, I am not a grits fan, but plenty of folks seemed to be enjoying them.  We had a plain cheese omlette, and didn't see anyone getting a plate with the Spanish sauce.

            I saw an episode of Diner, Drive-Ins and Dives where the cook used that same method to mix his eggs.  Maybe it was the Coffee Cup.  I'd love to see that prep up close!  Thanks!

              The prep? They use those mixers for the omelets at all Waffle House restaurants, and have been for the more than 30 years I've been a customer.

                1 1/2 hr. drive for breakfast?
                you'd have to give me $10k & have a scantilly dressed Pam Anderson serving me.
