Took a day off from work and wanted to go back to this breakfast/brunch place for a leisurely breakfast. This was the third or fourth time I went here with my other half. One of the times that we went here was last year with our good friends who we get together with every few months, since they live about 30 miles away from us. We felt like going back here since it’s something out of the ordinary from our usual breakfast stops in walking distance in town. Although, this is part of a chain where they have several locations in the south (NC, SC, VA and GA), this is the only location in New York, as far as I know from their Famous Toastery website. Just type in your zip code to confirm your local location. Maybe if this one is successful, they will expand on Long Island and in NY in general.
Looking at the image of the Huevos Rancheros, you might think, well that looks like a bowl of slop! I almost fell into thinking this and was prejudging this dish until I tasted it. Let me tell you, this was really delicious – very flavorful pureed, seasoned black beans, egg whites (as requested), and no cheese. I don’t really do much dairy anymore. Added on a decent sized portion of Avocado that I shared with my boyfriend. The little bit of Pico De Gallo on it was great; next time I will definitely ask for more. Asked for a side of their homemade salsa, but really wasn’t a fan of it and I’m not sure what ingredient it was that bothered me. I love cilantro – so I know this wasn’t it. Loved their Pico though.
Stole a couple of the potatoes off of my boyfriend’s plate. They were fresh and very tasty. Might have to get some for myself next time, but was trying to eat healthier that day. He had the Blah Blah Omelette with egg whites, which is basically a create-your-own omelette in which you can pick up to three ingredients to add to a 3-ingredients, and no cheese for him either. Check out their very eclectic menu with a vast amount of choices for both breakfast and lunch even for the pickiest eater, including me. Was happy and surprised to see at least one vegan lunch option in their lunch menu with the Portobello & Roasted Veggie Wrap. Sounds perfect for me!
Highly recommend stopping by the Famous Toastery in Commack for a great breakfast, excellent service and a surprisingly diverse menu of traditional and far from ordinary food options. Happy end of summer 🙂
