Mornings are so much easier when they include a cinnamon roll.
A really big cinnamon roll. Freshly baked, hot out of the oven and smothered in butter.
At Tartuffles, once a bakery and now a restaurant, you can get such a cinnamon roll by itself or along with breakfast--instead of the usual toast--upon request. The substitution will cost you a bit more, but it's a treat well worth the extra dough.
As for the breakfast plates themselves, a great entree to try is the hobo omelet, a delicious combo of ham, onions and bell peppers, lavished in melted cheese and topped with a chili relleno. Another hit is steak and eggs--a tender marinated steak with a side of eggs made-to-order. All breakfast plates are served with a side of home-style fries and fresh fruit. (Add a cinnamon roll and you won't have to eat again for a week.)
Service here is always at least a step ahead. Coffee refills are prompt, without your having to ask.
The diner's decor is typical for a coffee shop--Formica tables with cushioned bench seats, plastic-coated menus. And there are daily specials, such as an omelet or a stack of pancakes, at great prices.
