Countrie Eatery

950 N. State St., Dover, DE - (302) 674-8310
Posted By Michael Stern on 5/31/2015 6:11:00 AM
Breakfast is the big meal of the day at the Countrie Eatery, originally known as the Blue Coat Pancake House. There are fine buttermilk pancakes, available with with bananas, berries, apples, pecans, or chocolate chips; there are poached eggs on crab cakes, pigs in blankets, and creamed chipped beef on toast. French toast is made with regular bread or raisin bread. For those in search of a true mid-Atlantic side dish, the kitchen makes scrapple -- two thick slices from the loaf, fried until crunchy on the outside, but moist and porky within.

At lunch you can have a crab cake sandwich, a half-pound sirloin burger, or a hot sandwich made with turkey, pork, or beef. Fried oysters are hand-breaded; or you can have fresh oyster stew. French onion soup is indulgent luxury; Maryland crab soup is sweet and spicy. Excellent desserts included apple dumplings, rice pudding, bread pudding, and a Delaware peach crisp.

The Countrie Eatery is a three-meal-a-day coffee shop with Colonial-style primitive art and crafts on display.

Known on the menu as The Little Creek, this dish puts medium sized crabcakes on English muffins and tops them with poached eggs and hollandaise sauce.

For the serious pork lover, scrapple is the classic mid-Atlantic breakfast meat.  The Countrie Eatery serves two big, crusty slabs.

Good fluffy omelets as this one was loaded with plenty of ham and cheese.

You can get your pancakes in orders of one, two or three and it comes with a side of meat - either bacon, sausage or scrapple.

We enjoyed the well done hash browns, but the corned beef hash was straight from a can.

Locals still know the Countrie Eatery as the Blue Coat Pancake House. The pancakes are still very good.
