Every forkful is different when you plow into a Breakfast Shoppe Knapsacker, a downsized version of The Backpacker. It's an iron skillet loaded with eggs, ham, bacon, sausage, potatoes, peppers, onions, tomatoes, spinach, broccoli and jack cheese.

This is traditional eggs benedict featuring Canadian bacon, topped with excellent hollandaise sauce. Other versions available at The Breakfast Shoppe include Florentine (spinach and onions), holstein (veal cutlets and melted Swiss cheese), and Philadelphia (beef with onions and Swiss).

The potato pancakes, an occasional special, have a light crispy exterior and is creamy throughout on the inside.  The maple link sausage is highly recommended.

The Texas Skillet mixes sautéed mushrooms, green peppers, onions, home fries, scrambled eggs in an iron skillet and tops them with pepper jack cheese and skirt steak.  Outstanding!

There is a machine behind the counter to which waitresses periodically add oranges and from which they draw glasses of just-squeezed juice. In the background is a carafe of ice tea.

The salmon in the Nova Scotia eggs Benedict delivers a salty punch!  The waitress brought me a cup of extra Hollandaise sauce without being asked, which was much appreciated.

In June 2010, Breakfast Shoppe moved a mile further down Ritchie Highway.  The seating capacity at the new location has tripled, which should help alleviate the long lines they usually have here.
