Penny Cluse Cafe, Burlington VT
Man, the last couple of weeks have been crazy around my house! Problems with our furnace, major issues with my car, getting ready for vacation, anniversary/birthdays/holidays....you name it and it seems we've been hit with it! I feel like I haven't had a second to breathe, much less work on my blog! So, I decided to do a post on one of my favorite places in the world to have breakfast - Penny Cluse Cafe in Burlington, VT.
I say it's one of my favorite places for breakfast simply because that's the only meal I've gone there for, but I'm sure lunch would be just as fabulous! Plenny Cluse was featured in a 2010 edition of the Food Network Magazine for the best place for breakfast in all of Vermont. Specifically noted was their biscuits smothered in herb gravy. I have to tell you - I am not a biscuits & gravy person when it comes to breakfast food, however Penny Cluse's herb gravy is TO DIE FOR! I would order this for breakfast just so I can eat their amazing gravy! I hope to one day be able to replicate that gravy.
This past weekend was my birthday, so my husband took me to Penny Cluse for a celebratory birthday breakfast. My most favorite thing in the world to eat for breakfast is banana pancakes. It is the only type of pancake I will eat....no other is worth eating in my book. Needless to say, I think I have banana pancakes maybe once a year so it is a special treat for me! Penny Cluse happens to be the only place I know of that makes them the way I like them, so it's a great excuse to make the trip out there (below is a picture of a batch of banana pancakes I made - click here for my recipe).
Breakfast at Penny Cluse was a wonderful start to my birthday! If you are ever in Burlington VT, I highly recommend going to this amazing cafe - I promise you will not regret it!
In the next few weeks I have a couple of fun things to look forward to - thank God because I could use a break! First off is vacation in Antigua with my amazing husband to celebrate our 10th anniversary. Then shortly after that we will be welcoming a new puppy to our family - a female charcoal lab. We haven't decided on a name yet, but here is a picture of her:
She is actually the color of charcoal/gray (this picture doesn't do her coloring justice & the "brown" label simply means the color of her collar so they can tell them apart). We are very excited to bring her home in a few weeks! After we settle in with her, I hope to get back to more regular blog posts, so stayed tuned! Till then - I will be thinking of you all as I bask in the Caribbean sun! ☺
