I thought you Philly guys all went to The Blue Jay
(or Le Je' Bleu) for a load of scrapple and rice
pudding for dessert. I believe I even saw some regatta
results this year where a club name was Le Je' Bleu
which got a good giggle from me.
Seattle has to weigh in with that breakfast place
with the 12 egg omelettes called something like
Beth's. Help me out people, it's on the northside.
The Cal coaches several years ago took me to a place
that I called Beths also in Alameda, I think it was
across the Fruitvale bridge. Now every breakfast
place that I can't remember the name - I just say
'let's go to Beths'.
Zubies recently closed in Costa Mesa. The best place
ALL TIME. 1.49 Huevos Rancheros for breakfast and
dinners were killer, you can still go to Charleys
Chili in Newport or The Stuft T-Shirt for breakfast,
but the latter is more a surfer/fisherman place.
UK folks have to weigh in on Henley, no? My favorites
were The Stag (say hi to the Preacher and the other
Henley Rowing Club cowboys and why didn't they show up
in L.A. in 84 like they said they would?), and The
The Big Wheel still there in St Catherines? Killer
buffet, great folks that owned it in the 70s.
If you are travelling between Princeton and Philly, a
required stop is The Greenwood Dairy. They got the
largest damned Sundaes I've ever seen - almost morbid.
The ice cream is fantastic, but I caution you, after
seeing some of the bodies that roll. in and out of there
while you're working on your Mt Whitney sized dessert,
you may never touch ice cream again.
In Princeton, there was a pub at the end of Carnegie that
had killer chili, but nothing else in Princeton area was
Here at the Stanford area, a lot of the rowers have
gone to Hobbee's over the years, I only tolerate it -
(sorry JD). Palo Alto has gone completely foo-foo,
St James Infirmary in Mt View burned down last year,
but you can still get decent pub food and beer at some of
the local pubs like Oasis, Dutch Goose, and Antonio's.
Their popularity rotates randomly.
My highest recommendation is for Pete's Harbor for a
good breakfast with fantastic location, but it's not
rower- frequented, in spite of the old sweep oar
*** prominently in the dining area.
BTW, all of the rowers in Lake County California are
fond of The Brick in Kelseyville, or the Cottage
in Lakeport for breakfast. We like to hit Tacos
El Rey for dinner in Lakeport. Of course there's
only three rowers in the whole county, my 2 kids and I.
Then there's that place over by Grocery Outlet
that is awesome, I think it's called Beths.
