Between the holidays, starting a new job, and the fact that it’s damned difficult to get out of bed in the mornings, we managed to go four months without having breakfast at SELMA. This week, however, we felt the first hint of spring in the air, and the combination of sunshine and the promise of crepes proved enough to get us out the door and into Jeff and Lisa’s warm kitchen, where John Roos and his wife were serving up breakfast. Well, that and the fact that we were out of coffee.
I couldn’t have been happier with my breakfast – a buckwheat crêpe complète with local ham, soft cheese, and a barely fried egg, just the way I like it. Shane had a gorgeous pile of scrambled eggs, homemade biscuits, and hippie gravy. I’m not sure how hippie gravy varies from regular gravy other than the lack of meat, but it sure was tasty. We both filled up our mugs with Roos Roast, and left with plenty of time to make it to work AND for Shane to find a parking spot on a beautiful end-of-winter morning. So good, you guys. Let’s not wait another four months before breakfasting at SELMA.
