After enjoying a long weekend inNew Orleans, we stopped at Rouse's Grocery for some specialties to bring home. And it was long past breakfast time! As we drove across the Twin Spans over Lake Pontchartrain, I searched Yelp for a breakfast/brunch spot in Slidell, Louisiana.
This really cozy eatery is located at 1830 Highway 190 West, Slidell, LA 70460. Imagine walking through the door of your gramma's house and there are eight tables set up for dining. Some are two tops, some four, and a larger "family style" table in the middle of the room. As we walked up onto the porch to add our names to the sign in sheet, there were three other people waiting for a table. Shortly after signing in, a server told the other diners a table was ready. They generously invited us to sit at the family style table with them. What a fun way to make new friends and enjoy some delicious food!
Coffee was brought immediately for the other diners and I chose sweet iced tea. The breakfast menu is wide and varied. Everything from combination plates, omelettes, breakfast sandwiches, and pancakes.
I chose the B.L.T. Breakfast Sandwich $4.99 with choice of hash browns, homefries, or grits. I chose homefries and added an extra side of cheese grits because I love them!
The sandwich was loaded with perfectly cooked bacon, fresh tomatoes, and crisp lettuce. The potatoes had a wonderful crunch on the exterior. And the cheese grits were creamy and loaded with sharp cheddar cheese.
One of the diners ordered the #4 combination plate which consists of three pancakes, one egg, and choice of bacon, sausage, ham, smoked sausage, or pork chop. $5.79. I missed a picture of the protein portion of her meal, but here are two of the HUGE pancakes.
Sweet Harold chose the Everything Omelette $8.99 which includes all the meats and all the veggies! He enjoyed the omelette more than the biscuit. It was a little different than the biscuits he's used to here in Alabama.
If you're ever traveling through Slidell on the way to or from New Orleans, take a few minutes to drive off the main highway and enjoy a delicious, plentiful, and extremely affordable meal at S & H Good Eats Cafe.
