Saying good-by to friends is always sad but when they return they will be full-time residents of the City of Lake Worth and no longer snowbirds. They belong here they wrote the Lake Worth Anthem after all. As Mel and Vinnie are packed and trailer ready to get on the road again. A tradition of walking downtown for breakfast was established some years ago. We found ourselves at CJs Island Grill.* Yes indeed $5 breakfast every single day until 1p.m. and the chef happens to be the night-time chef at Suri. The breakfast is very good.Two eggs your way, potatoes, roasted vegetables, fruit, toast and Coffee. $5 CJ’s downtown.
The other wonderful place to have your $5 breakfast is at the Mason”s Lodge aka Mockingbird Garden. For 5 dollars all you can eat and have it cooked to your preference. Meet your friends and make new friends any last Sunday of the month this deal is only from 8:30 a.m. to 11:00 but they won’t kick you out till noon. I recommend you bring your own mug, if your environmental.
Now last but not least, ask for the Local Special at Mulligans on the Beach with a view that just doesn’t stop over our Atlantic Ocean. Seating can be indoors or outside. I opt for the comfy chairs and small table waiting area . Call it ringside seating. Now their $5 local special is advertised as $2.99 but you won’t get that if you do not order coffee. So to simplify your order. “Just say Local Special, please, 2 eggs your way, potatoes and toast with coffee” The least fancy but then you get this ocean view.
editors note * CJ’s Island Grill now has the Little Munich Chef on Fri. Sat. Sun. after 5 p.m. should you want some good traditional German Food. PLUS see the LWAL tropical art showcased on their walls.
