Many thanks to a Pancake House

Uncle Bill's - the pride of the Sou'side! This place has won "Best Breakfast" for the last 22 years in a local food critic's column. 

It boasts unlimited coffee, eggs any way, and the best hashbrowns in the universe. The menu has stayed the same for as long as I have lived here.

 Josh has ordered Hawaiian pancakes when we go here, for most of his life ...covered in that unnaturally red syrup that no one can seem to identify but is crazy good! 

The waitresses have worked here for years and have names like Betty, Margie, and Jo. They banter with teens and call them all sweetie.

 This is the place of after prom pancakes, the raucous midnight breakfasts where a whole play cast takes over the back room and revels in a successful performance together. This is the place of the affordable, close to home, Tuesday date night when Tony and I got away for an hour to talk over cups of coffee before we went back to our toddler brood. We decided we wanted to adopt at one of those tables one night. Today we were having breakfast together before Thomas gets in his truck for another run to Utah.Our family dynamic has changed - everyone is older and doing different things. But Betty, Margie and Jo are still there. I find it a beautiful thing.


  1. Yes, it must be lovely to have such a place near your home. I'd love to have one too. :)
    Happy September!

  2. What a great place! And the food looks delicious!

  3. I do love me some pancakes! How awesome that some things never change :)
