I have found another good breakfast place! I’m so happy. I love [non-buttermilk] pancakes, but can’t make them well at home. Smiley’s has a very nice 4 grain pancake. Pair that with their delicious, thick, greasy bacon (from local pigs, I believe) for which they are well-known, and I’m in heaven! The coffee I had was just okay. They serve espresso drinks, too, but didn’t order any. I don’t remember exactly what Hubby ordered, some sort of corn meal pancake, and he really enjoyed it. We went on a Friday morning, and we had plenty of tables to choose from. I’d read online that this place can get pretty busy, but maybe that’s only on weekends.
The decor is very casual, almost country-chic, but not fussy at all. One lady was just hanging out with her coffee and newspaper; another couple looked like they had met for breakfast to catch up- they all gave a very homey vibe to the place.
But I will definitely be going back! I want to try more stuff on the menu and have more of the tasty bacon!
