Angels Restaurant [Chicken Fajita Omelet]
After a somewhat restless Friday night I figured I would get up early on a rainy Saturday morning and head out for breakfast. After a bit of deliberation, I settled on Angels Restaurant. Angels is located on E. John Street, which was convenient since I followed up breakfast with a trip to the Appleton Farmer’s Market in search of ground cherries and peas (found both, by the way).
Spanish vs. Chicken Fajita Omelet
Food in the Fox has visited Angels a time or two in the past and we’ve written about it here and here when we visited for THRIVE Lunch. Both of those reviews are egg-centric, and this one will be, too. In fact, I’m not sure if we have ever eaten at Angels and not ordered eggs. Maybe that should get added to the Food in the Fox’s to-do list.
For Saturday morning it turned out to be a toss-up between the Spanish Omelet and the Chicken Fajita Omelet. Both are essentially the same thing but one includes chicken. Common between the two ware green peppers, onions, tomato, cheese, and a side of salsa and sour cream. Available sides include hash browns, American fries, and fruit. Toast options are the usual white, wheat, and rye.
Everything was pretty good with a couple of tiny exceptions. There wasn’t much chicken in the omelet so it didn’t really add any flavor to the breakfast. If I were in the mood for the same thing again, I would go with the Spanish Omelet and save a few cents ($6.19 vs. $6.59, so literally just a few cents). The fruit didn’t have much flavor but that’s kind of the nature of our commercial food industry. Pick a crusty little wild apple off a tree and compare it to an oversized commercially grown apple from the store and you’ll immediately taste the difference.
The service was great as usual.
