Breakfast By The Sea
Sun, 10/27/13 1:28 PM
I just returned from a business trip to Fort Lauderdale. While I didn't have opportunity to try many RF type places as other food options--friends' homecooked dinners/business lunches abounded. But I did manage to squeeze in a nice burger from the Brickyard in Daytona Beach (sorry no pictures as camera refused to charge up) and a couple of nice breakfasts on the way to meetings.
The Brickyard burger came out superb. Medium with nice pink inside, thick (1/2 inch?), fresh tomato and lettuce and brown mustard. The small tasting of coleslaw was rough chopped cabbage some carrots in a light vinegar based dressing. The fries were very thin but okay. Washed down with a draft of Florida Lager (out of Melbourne) which I was surprised to see on tap given the Brickyard is covered with Bud and Coors logos. A good choice for a quick meal after a long drive.
One morning, on the way from FLL to Boca Raton, I pulled into my fav donut shop Dandee Donuts on East Atlantic Blvd.
As you can see the sun's not quite up yet and the lot is full.
I usually get a sourcream cake donut (left) which is my fav, and one other...This time I spied a walnut cruller. It was chocolate batter inside and must have been sitting in the case a while as it was very dry and I didn't finish it, even stuck in traffic.
