How I heard of this place: Yelp. A new destination requires at least a brief overview of dining options on Yelp, and the photos and reviews of Firehouse Grill piqued our interest immediately.

Type of cuisine: Breakfast and brunch, mostly organic and seasonal, sustainable and simple.

or even slightly secluded in the back of the establishment.

Enjoy tasteful colors on the walls, simple and profound decor, including photographs of firemen, and firehouse paraphernalia in an open setting with clean lines and warm, fuzzy feelings.

Firehouse Grill Looking Forward

What I ordered: My predictable husband selected the Chicken Fried Steak and Eggs ($13.50): fresh breaded beef cutlet topped with house made sausage gravy, two eggs and served with house fried red potatoes and onions, served with a fresh buttermilk biscuit.

And a cup of Sleepy Monk coffee ($2.75) for the road trip home.

For me, the Morning Sauté ($10.75): butter grilled biscuit topped with two poached eggs, sautéed mushrooms, scallions, tomatoes, feta cheese and fresh organic baby spinach and served with house fried red potatoes with onions.

For our little one, we selected one slice of the Cinnamon Bread French Toast off of the children’s menu, normally topped with butter, whipped cream and maple syrup.

What I loved: The French Toast was delicate and so yummy with that cinnamon swirl! The Chicken Fried Steak easily in the top three of samples I’ve had from my husband’s brunch orders over the years. And for my dish, the fresh greens and vegetables served with a perfectly poached egg (no runny whites, all runny yolks) made it a dish worth the early morning wake-up. Oh! And the house-made (daily) sausage gravy is a must try; easily the best I have had to date. Easily.

Why I loved it: Simple foods served with excellent ingredients and in a friendly establishment. Our server, bless her heart, completely sanitized and wiped down the high chair (without being asked!) prior to even bringing it to our table. That’s a first (and probably a last – unless we return) for us. Thank you!
