During a weekend of protein overload one must start the day with a good foundation. We found a great place called the "Cowpoke Cafe"  in Middletown California to start your day with a hearty and great tasting breakfast. The front of the Cowpoke Cafe was guarded by a sea of motorcycles. This gave us a clue of the popularity and good food to come. One inside we grabbed one of the last reaming tables in a packed house.We did not even know of the beautiful garden seating area in the back. We were promptly given menus with a side of strong coffee. We had a large choice of traditional breakfast fair with a chalk drawn sandwich board proclaiming the specials. Of course pork chops for me and eggs Benedict for Ms.  Goofy.

Despite the house being packed, we were served our breakfast in a timely manner. Our plates looked scrumptious The pork chops had enticing brown glaze promising lots of flavor. A sharp knife was provided but was not needed to cut through these tender and juicy cuts of pork. A small bucket of gravy was provided to smother a homemade biscuit. The dishwasher had an easy job with my plate because I licked it clean. Ms. Goofy was silent while she devoured her yummy plate of hollandaise covered poached eggs. Once done she barked her seal of approval.

If you happen to be near Middletown the 'Cowpoke Cafe' is a must breakfast stop. We left this restaurant with a smile and a great tasting foundation for more food indulgence. Nest time we will sit in the garden area in the back. Let the BBQ competition begin.

I love finding places like that and both meals look awesome - I think I'd go with the pork chop and biscuit and gravy though - gotta keep my weight up.

That gravy looks like you could stand your knife up in it.

Bacon fest this Saturday you might care about:

Greg, The coffee was strong and that helped.

Big Dude, We will return. It is popular for good reasons.

Aaron, I licked that gravy bowl clean. The bacon gig sounds tempting. You going?

I pictured the motorcycles as the "horses tied up in front of the saloon" of this century.

That and then I imagined Mongo coming in and pinning everyone against the wall with the player piano.

Chris, We rode into town in the stagecoach *Racing Honda".
One of the best movies ever!!!
Mongo: Mongo only pawn... in game of life

Aaron said...

No, not going; if you do, enjoy...

I think that sausage gravy and biscuits is humanities best invention right after fire. How can you eat like that before judging? I stick with two slices of toast...

Three Dogs BBQ, Gravy makes the world go around. An old friend Dr. Biggles used to say;"It's all about the gravy".
