Sneak Peek at Himmarshee Newcomer, Old Fort Lauderdale Breakfast House

Bluejays Cafe may be sadly and mysteriously closed, but just across Himmarshee Street, there's a new restaurant taking shape in a historic 1925 building.

The Old Fort Lauderdale Breakfast House, inexplicably abbreviated as O-B/House (website), will serve an all-day breakfast menu of the usual suspects: specialty omelets, breakfast sandwiches, soups, and house-roasted coffee. The owner, Rodney Ely, also owned the building's previous tenant, the never-opened Village Pie pizza venture.

Inside: a peek at the enticing interior of the new place, all ready to go.

This is a view of the impressive coffee bar at the east end of the space; that thing that looks like a pizza oven in the back wall actually seems to be an excitingly humungous coffee roaster.

We haven't been able to get in touch with Ely yet; the website says it will be "finished with construction and opening summer 2011." We'll be there to try it!
