Big On Breakfast

Good Bite

BY PHILIP LEDERER SRQ DAILY FRIDAY WEEKEND EDITION FRIDAY MAY 12, 2017

There are few better ways to start the day then with a hearty, filling breakfast. But the prospect of getting up early enough to make it happen can sometimes be enough to make the stomach turn. For the homemade breakfast experience without the hassle, hit up Bombon Café on Main Street, where breakfast sandwiches fill the stomach without emptying the wallet. Served on a croissant or choice of bagel, the Sausage, Egg and Cheddar breakfast sandwich is a straightforward staple destined not to disappoint. Starting with locally sourced sausage, the meat is scrambled into a pair of eggs cooked to order, with a helping of cheddar cheese from the local Amish community thrown in at the last moment for a melted, gooey binder. Pair with a pastry or peruse the extensive list of teas and coffees—and don’t be afraid to ask for tips from the staff or the regulars, who enter and exit the shop in a chorus of “Ciao!”. Eat there if you have the time, or take your morning pick-me-up in a brown bag to go. “Like at home,” smiles owner Caterina Mandelli.
