Latest Allie B's news and reviews

A rainy Saturday morning was well spent catching Allie B's open for breakfast. Coke, Pepsi and other assorted sodas were available in cans. Q106 country played on the radio. In the windows were some plastic replicas of coffee mugs and donuts that were so realistic as to give the models in (sushi restaurant's) window a run for their money. The ladies' room was covered with sunflowers right down to the switch plates.

The toast selection was white, wheat, rye, sourdough, and low-carb white and wheat. Nichole opined that the first place to offer raisin toast gets an automatic A+. Even without raisin toast, breakfast was good and arrived with little pineapple tidbit garnishes. The coffee was at least as good as Original Pancake House's.
