Breakfast on Broadway is standing room only on weekends. The owners of this new-ish Englewood restaurant took no time finding the killer app: straightforward breakfast, brunch and lunch fare (eggs Benedict, omelets, sandwiches and some of the city’s more absurd — and delicious — pancakes) with plenty of parking out front.
And Bloody Marys. Lots and lots of Bloody Marys.
You’ll find folks lingering over long breakfasts here, as well as time-strapped adventurers fueling up for the drive to the mountains. There will likely be an order of praline pancakes at every table, either being shared among the assembled or jealously guarded by its orderer.
If kids are in attendance, there’ll also likely be a plate of s’mores pancakes, with chocolate, marshmallows and graham crackers (sugar rushes spurt like geysers in this place).
More austere breakfasts created by the smart team of cooks include a crispy, satisfying corned-beef hash and a refreshing Swedish Benedict plate with smoked salmon.
Tip: If you’ve maxxed on eggs for the week, skip straight to the lunch menu for the tuna salad with jicama and ginger.
Come early or late if it’s the weekend and you’re in a party of more than two, or expect to wait for a table.
