How I heard of this place: It was highly recommended by the St. Michaels local townspeople.

Type of cuisine: What would you imagine a saloon or pub would serve up for breakfast? Eggs? French Toast? A plate-sized stack of hotcakes? C-Street has it all! And then some…

Tables at C-Street

What I ordered: The smartest in our four-person bunch opted for a simple breakfast of champions, enjoying the C-Street Oatmeal ($3) with honey, brown sugar and milk.


His wife enjoyed a generous helping with the Steam Schooner ($7.50) for three plate-sized hotcakes and two eggs, soft scrambled, with a side of bacon ($3).

Hot Cakes

My husband, eager to participate in a diner-style breakfast of champions, selected a breakfast of Three Eggs ($5.50), soft scrambled with onions and cheddar cheese, served with a side of rye toast.

Two Eggs

I, too, loved the thought of a hugs egg breakfast and ordered the Western Omelette ($7.75) stuffed with more than you could hope for by way of ham, diced green and red bell pepper, onion and cheddar cheese; also served with a side of toasted rye, whipped butter and a selection of jams.

Western Omelet

What I loved: The Western Omelette – crunchy vegetables, gooey cheddar and a hearty helping of food to keep me satisfied all day.

Why I loved it: Friendly staff, camaraderie between local, regular customers and waitstaff, a space obviously decorated over decades and a highly reasonable menu by way of pricing and portions!

Cost: Low ($3.50 – $11 per large breakfast plate)
