On Sunday morning, we (my bro, sis-in-law, husband and I) hung out for a while watching some Real Housewives of New Jersey. We discussed some food options and decided to head out for breakfast. I must now note something crazy– since I have known my husband, I have only ever gone out to eat breakfast in Rhode Island one other time. In other words, in six years, I have only eaten breakfast out when not on vacation once. Crazy, right? I think that’s because if I am home, I simply prefer to eat breakfast at home. However, when on vacation, I have no choice but to have breakfast out. Anyway, we decided to go back to the same place I went to breakfast years ago, a well-known Rhode Island breakfast spot called T’s.
T’s is kind of a quintessential Rhode Island breakfast restaurant (although they do serve lunch too). It’s always super busy, but the turnover is really fast. Our party of four had to wait about twenty minutes for a table, which was not bad at all considering how many people were there!
I love T’s because it has an extensive breakfast menu that is suitable for all dietary preferences. They have vegan, gluten-free, indulgent and healthy options. The service is also attentive and efficient, which I like! In other words, never did our coffee cups go empty!
I started out with OJ and decaf and carefully looked over the menu.
I knew I wanted pancakes and home fries, so when I saw their “number one” I knew it was the right combo! The number one came with 2 pancakes, home fries, an egg cooked any way, and sausage or bacon. I asked for sausage, and requested it came on a separate plate so my husband could eat it, and they happily obliged since as a vegetarian, sausage isn’t for me. I actually tried a scrambled egg for the first time since I was a kid– I have been toying with the idea of adding eggs into my diet and this was the first step. Unfortunately, I totally spaced on taking a photo of my plate, but believe me, it was delicious. I actually enjoyed the scrambled egg, but don’t think I am ready for eggs cooked any other way.
The food was fresh, tasty, and the portions were large, but not overwhelming. If you are ever looking for a breakfast spot in RI, I highly recommend T’s!
After breakfast, I literally took a four-hour nap at home! Hello exhaustion! I woke up around 4:30 and hung out some more with my family. Later that evening, we met up with my mom and sis for some Mexican food at my favorite Mexican restaurant in Providence, Tortilla Flats.
I ate a ton of chips and salsa. . .
plus some vegetarian nachos. . .
and for dinner, a plate of bean and cheese enchiladas and rice!
I barely made a dent in my entrée since it was huge and I filled up on apps, but what I did have of it was quite tasty.
Sunday was full of great food and more importantly, tons of family time. I still had one more morning with my bro and sis-in-law before they headed off, which I’ll tell you about tomorrow!
