Denny’s 3747 Sun City Center Blvd Sun City, FL 33573

Came in for a late breakfast yesterday, parking lot packed so expected a long wait. To my surprise, the kind greeter had a booth available in front of TV. Gracious pleasant Hispanic waitress took my order, the four-buck slam.

Two reasonable pancakes, two scrambled eggs and two sausage links was done right. Do you want more lemonade? No thanks, one big glass was enough. Above and beyond service on a busy morning, they get a medal.

Just east of I-75 at the County Road 674 Sun City Center Boulevard exit in a restaurant compound shared with Bob Evans, Wendy’s and Popeye’s Chicken.

Steak and Shake 10555 Ulmerton Largo FL

Came in on an early morning last week, pleasant friendly service in a clean quiet dining room. This is consistent will all their locations I’ve been to.

Ordered the three silver-dollar pancakes for a buck and a half plus three of their dollar breakfast tacos. Coffee mug reloaded three times at least. Their retro interior and golden oldies music is always welcome.

Unfortunately they are now starting breakfast at six, so it’s the dinner menu before then.

Mitchells Coffee Shop Downtown Lakeland FL

First time in Downtown Lakeland this morning. While walking around watching the Saturday Morning Market vendors get set up I stumbled upon this gem. Mitchells is a welcome contrast to the Starbucks routine, a quiet easy-going home-town place with wooden tables and chairs.

Several artistic creations for sale on the walls, flanking a tall bookcase with reading materials. Large dining floor with several tables. Order and pay at the counter, take a number to your table and they will bring your order to you.

Although at over eight bucks for a huge lemonade glass and a bare ham omelet with no toast or potatoes on the side is a bit high, the experience was worth it. The tasty omelet arrived quickly. Will try something else next time.
