Bradke’s Restaurant [Southwest Omelet]


After a networking event, Food in the Fox decided to travel south, to Neenah to find a place to grab a bite to eat, thinking that there would be a cafe or breakfast place on Main street. Well, we drove through downtown and nothing caught our attention. We were almost to the highway, when we looked to the left and there was a giant sign, stating EAT. Like we need to be told to do that, but anyways, we pulled in the small parking lot and decided to give the place a shot for breakfast. I also managed to violently scratch the bottom of my car in the parking lot.

Being Buddy the Elf

We walked into the small dinner and there were a few people scattered about enjoying food and conversation. The decor was nothing to write home about, but it was a cozy little cafe with maybe a dozen tables and a coffee bar. I usually don’t talk about public restrooms, but I’m going there. They were very small. I felt like I was in the movie ‘Elf’, when Will Ferrell is a giant in an elf-sized room. Anyways, moving on. The waitress was very friendly and we ordered our food a few minutes after looking through the rather traditional menu.

I went with something eggy, which, if you haven’t noticed is kind of a staple breakfast food for me. It was an omelet with green pepper, onion and tomatoes. It also came with a choice of bread and when the waitress said, Texas toast, I was sold. I also decided to go with a side of peaches, rather than hash browns or American fries. One thing that was a bit different, was how they brought our food out. Usually it is all on one plate. End of story. Not here. First my bowl of peaches came out followed by a plate with my toast. She then brought out T’s toast. Next she brought out my omelet and then lastly, she brought out T’s omelet. I am not sure if the vigorous routine was planned, but it was a bit unusual.

Tennessee Multi-Grain, Maine Sourdough?

The eggs in the omelet were light and fluffy, but besides that, it was a typical omelet. The one inch thick Texas toast sopping in butter was pretty dang good. While eating it I wondered if other states have bread/toast named after them? Anyways, back on track. It was around $8.00 for the large omelet, toast and peaches, which was a pretty good deal. Next time you are in Neenah, don’t just drive by the giant EAT sign, stop in and have a quick bite.
