After a brutal winter March came in like a lion and…well, kind of went out like a lion too. Don’t pack away the sweaters just yet. But what better way to stay warm on still-chilly mornings than with a little breakfast? Let’s see how we spent the lion month.

March 9: What sets this little deli on Wheeler Avenue in Pleasantville apart from other delis? Here you can get a quick breakfast with a Mexican flair. Try a standard breakfast burrito—complete with chorizo and jalapenos—or get a morning hot tamale. The tamale meat has just a bit of spice, so it won’t overwhelm you for your first meal of the day.
March 15: The WBC has visited Auray before. What drew us back was the promise of some authentic French fare at a reasonable price. A couple of items from this visit stand out. First, Shelley tried the egg, ham, and cheese croissant. This isn’t any old breakfast sandwich; Auray serves theirs with French Madrange ham and emmenthaler cheese. And, the egg is bursting out of the croissant; a good half of the egg was extending far beyond the confines of the croissant. It cannot be contained! Another highlight was the coconut croissant that Sylvia tried. It was deliciously flaky with a good amount of sweetened coconut paste filled through the middle. Not sweet, but definitely satisfying.
March 23: Oh Wobble. Our first breakfast love. They say of lovers that the one who keeps coming back is usually The One. And this may well be the case when it comes to the WBC and Wobble. We just can’t stay away. We’ve talked in the past about the migas and the frats. And oh how we still love them. But this morning some of us tried one of the breakfast specials, the strawberry French toast-style short cake pancake. The what? It was shortbread, fried French toast style with layers of cream and strawberries. We love experimentation, even if it doesn’t exactly pan out the way we want it to. After all, every relationship needs a little something to mix it up now and then. This shortbread French toast pancake wasn’t our favorite. The cake wasn’t able to hold up to what a sturdier piece of bread would do and overall it was just too sweet, but we’re glad Wobble wasn’t afraid to try offering something different. We can’t wait to see what else they can think of!
