No. 65: The East Coaster Breakfast
There are a lot of reasons the steak and eggs here are so damned good. There's the perfectly poached eggs, the thick-cut bread slathered in butter, and the side of cheese grits or crispy-as-hell potatoes. Yeah, all those things are fantastic. But this breakfast is about a hunk of beef that will mule-kick any hangover. Here, it's a baseball-cut sirloin. Not a wimpy filet or a tough-to-chew strip. A sirloin, the perfect balance between lean  and flavor, cut into a shape more akin to a filet. Order it rare and let it bleed into the yolk from those runny eggs. Yeah. Now sop it up with that bread. Hangover: busted.

I always eat at Old Fort Lauderdale Breakfast House every time I'm in town!  The presentation is awesome and the food is not only beautiful but a marriage of ingredients that tastes wonderful no matter what I order.  Quality food and an exceptionally clean place make this my favorite place to eat!  P.S.   I couldn't eat but half of my HUGE, tender blueberry filled pancake.


Seems like a pretty measly portion for $16.
