Blintzes On Broadway

Today we got up a little later than usual, but instead of going for lunch, Ed decided he wanted breakfast instead. Where else to go for all-day breakfast when on the east coast? To a diner, of course! But this wasn't any diner, it was the Broadway Diner in Baltimore; another Diners, Drive-ins and Dives joint!
As you can see from the picture above, the place is immaculately landscaped. Lush green grass, plants and shrubs arranged oh so prettily, and a gleaming silver exterior. The inside was just as nice.

Chrome and windows. Comfortable booths that showed no sign of wear (often a problem in diners, from so many patrons slipping in and out of the seats), clean floors and counters and either a music jukebox or video game unit at every table.
The menu is extensive; everything from breakfast to burgers, pitas to potato crusted salmon. Salads, burgers, melts of all kind (including Ed's favorite - tuna), Seafood, Italian food, Greek food, Steaks, Chops, Chicken, Sauteed Calves Liver (eww!).

And Blintzes! When we saw that, we knew we had to try it. We've always wanted to try a blintz, so we ordered it as a breakfast appetizer of sorts. They had cheese and blueberry; we chose cheese, which were served with a sliced strawberry and sour cream. Yummy.

Then Ed ordered The Lumberjack; three pancakes with ham, bacon, sausage and two eggs. He opted for the pecan pancakes.
I had the French Toast Deluxe; Three pieces of french toast with ham, bacon, sausage and two eggs. I opted for extra bacon, no ham.
Everything was delicious. I wasn't a fan of the fat breakfast sausage, but that's just personal preference. I like the little links. The french toast was perfect (made with Challah bread), the eggs were done to my liking and the bacon was crispy. I had a bite of Ed's pancakes and I have to say, pecan was a good call.

On our way out, we passed the dessert case again (see Guy Fieri's poster hanging above it?). I didn't have any room for dessert now, but there was always later. I think it was the most beautiful display of desserts I've seen outside of Ferrara Bakery in New York's Little Italy. They had individual cakes, cannolis, chocolate mousse, tiny tiramisu, cookies, brownies, cheesecake, tarts, etc. We got one little cheesecake to share; later, after dinner This place was easy to find (right off I-95) and they had parking in the back for a truck - tractor only, no trailer. I don't know that I would say it was a diner worthy of a spot on a TV show, but they certainly served good food and it will be a place we go again.
