Breakfast at the Fat Cat was excellent with fresh eggs, center-cut bacon, and exceptional potatoes. But the real kicker was that the choice of breads included a freshly baked cinnamon roll. Adios English muffins and sourdough bread. Hello killer pastry from a new loyal customer...

5 of us had breakfast, we all had something different. Everyone's dish was good. They where short staffed and still did a great job. I had the cinnamon roll which was about the size of a "grands" cinnamon roll but had a ton of frosting...More
