"It's great move for them," one neighbor volunteered. "Star Bagel is packed at breakfast, so there's clearly a demand."
Most of the breakfast menu is what you'd expect: biscuits, gravy, ham, eggs, omelets, home fries, pork chops. There was one especially Southern tradition: the fried bologna plate — I had to try it.
Though not glamorous, it was made with the same care that goes into the best of Sylvan Park's cooking: The bologna was seasoned and allowed to sizzle until browned, and the eggs were soft-scrambled precisely to that point between gooey and firm.
The staff's friendly, so they might let you order breakfast at a minute or two past 11, like they did for the table next to mine.
But then again, at that hour, you could be getting fried chicken and mashed potatoes instead, and you'd definitely be there early enough to score a coveted slice of chocolate pie for dessert.
