C & G Luncheons

C & G Luncheons
218 Merchant Street by Alakea

I was having trouble deciding where to eat breakfast this morning; first I went to Great Harvest, but they don't sell Cinnamon bread on Fridays and I didn't feel like a scone again (delicious but a little heavy with all of that cream cheese). Then I went next door to NYC Bagels (also on Merchant) but wasn't impressed with anything they had. It was cheap ($2 for a bagel with egg or cream cheese) but the bagels came out of a plastic bag and were toasted in a mini home toaster oven.

I was going to just go to work and skip breakfast, but then I saw a long line across the street at C&G. For breakfast, they offer breakfast plates (eggs, fried rice, and your choice of breakfast meats), toast, or french toast. I tried the fried rice and a piece of cornbread. The fried rice was pretty boring (a single piece of green onion and a few bits of bacon), I wouldn't go back for that. The cornbread was awesome though, the bisquick variety, like my aunty Mag used to bring to family dinners when I was little. Total: $3.59

*Update: I found out they only bake cornbread on Thursdays & Fridays. And not every Thursday/Friday, last week when I went the sweet worker told me they hadn’t made any that day.

Hey Pia!
I LOVE cornbread! Will have to stop by for a piece now that I'm back for Christmas...though I should probably give them a call beforehand (hehe...I like that not every thurs/fri part, so local!) :)
