Brickway On Wickenden

If you're looking for a charming breakfast spot in Providence, Brickway is the place. Like nearly all the buildings in this quaint city, the restaurant is housed in a historical establishment that has witnessed many lively conversations and nursed many hangovers since probably something like the 1700s. Here's what we ate:

My Dad's Western omelet: quite a hefty portion of a classic.

My sister's S-Pet: poached eggs with spinach, tomato and cheese. I was surprised by the raw spinach, but my sister liked it.

My Brickway Benedict: smoked salmon eggs benedict. Rich and more than I could handle! But, I would've regretted not ordering it. As you can see, all of us got potatoes, which were well-seasoned and hearty.

Brickway is the kind of place that would make for a lovely break from studying or a well-earned reward after a grueling week of exams. The interior was darling (lots of brick and a sunken dining area that made me wonder if it was once a sitting room in the olden days); I wish I had snapped some shots. Guess you'll just have to take my word for it!

I haven't been to Providence since...1997? 1996? I don't remember. We went to Brown to visit friends and then went to an R.E.M. concert.

This is a stupid comment. Sorry.

Weezermonkey: Don't be silly, I love hearing those kinds of little stories and tidbits of experience! I would've loved going to school up there, I think.

You definitely made the right choice - it has to be benedict! And I love the crispy potatoes on the side.

Foodycat: Yes, nothing says vacation breakfast like eggs benedict, eh? :)
