Day 143 – May 13
Happy Mother’s Day! I learned a lovely lesson today . . . . Steak n’ Shake serves breakfast! I knew they were open 24-7, but figured it was just their normal fare of burgers, fries, milkshakes, chili, etc. I’ll back up. We decided to go out for breakfast for Mother’s Day. Us, and 100 of our closest friends. It seemed like most places were pretty busy. The original pancake house was busy. Bob Evans was so full that their parking lot was full and people were parking in the lot next door. (I actually wasn’t too sad about that, Bob Evans doesn’t really have very good food. They DO have cheap kids meals that the babes were hoping for pancakes.) We thought about Panera, but they are expensive, and no pancakes. So, we decided to slowly make our way home. We passed Steak n’ Shake and DH suggested we go there. When he told me they served breakfast, pancakes, oatmeal, etc., I said, “Sold!”
They had great pancakes for the kids, and their kiddie set up was fantastic. They had little cardboard cars that the kids could put together and decorate with stickers. The kids menu had all sorts of fun activities on the back and the crayons they gave out were very small. So very smart! No need to have giant crayons that will likely never get used again! Each kid got a chef’s hat and they even had a bib! Seriously, the most kid-friendly restaurant I’ve been to in a long time!
For some reason, the restaurant wasn’t full of people, so we had a nice, quiet brunch. Things started to get busy just as we were leaving .. . perfect timing.
So, from now on, I think out Mother’s Day breakfast spot is going to be Steak n’ Shake.
