Lancaster City Breakfast Tour

I love to eat. Not sure if that qualifies me as a "foodie" but sometimes I call myself one. Lately, my new favorite thing is to go out for breakfast every Saturday morning with my husband & son and eat whatever I want. :-) 

All health restrictions get thrown out the window on Saturdays. We always make sure to stop at Central Market to pick up the necessities first. Then we head to one of the many quaint breakfast spots around the city. I have mixed feelings about the use of my word quaint here. I think it can come across patronizing or demeaning. "Oh, how quaint."

quaint  (kwānt)
adj. quaint·erquaint·est
1. Charmingly odd, especially in an old-fashioned way: "Sarah Orne Jewett . . . was dismissed by one critic as merely a New England old maid who wrote quaint, plotless sketches of late 19th-century coastal Maine"(James McManus).
2. Unfamiliar or unusual in character; strange: quaint dialect words. See Synonyms at strange.
3. Cleverly made; artful.

According to the definition above it could be interpreted as negative or critical. Odd or unusual. But keep in mind when I use quaint in reference to the places I enjoy getting breakfast, I am referring to a mix of definitions 1 & 3. Charming & clever. The array of breakfast joints around Lancaster City is charming & clever, trust me.

Because I'm so in love with food, breakfast, Lancaster City, & these quaint spots around Lancaster City I've felt inspired to tackle a new project: Lancaster City Breakfast Tour. My plan is to visit & revisit all restaurants & cafes around Downtown Lancaster then blog about my breakfast experience at each of them. Complete with pictures & anecdotes. I hope that you'll follow along with me & find a new favorite breakfast spot in the process! ;-)
