Two all-star breakfast favorites join forces to make one awesome meal and leaves you wondering … Why didn’t I think of that?
My recent visit to Blue Moon Café (1621 Aliceanna St. Baltimore, MD ) was my second trip there. The first time I visited was a few years ago with a few co-workers, back in my “late-night/early-morning” bartending days. The restaurant is open 24 hours on the weekend, so that makes for a great grub after the club. I don’t remember the food I ate, but I do remember the place being a very small and kitschy restaurant in Fells Point. My second time around I was on a mission to taste their famous Cap’n Crunch French Toast. I have many mention it on social media and I know a few people who’ve visited and raved about it.
I am officially one of the ravers because this French Toast is awesome! The Cap’n Crunch isn’t added in the batter mixture because that would be a little nasty, instead The Cap’n Crunch is encrusted on the outside of the French Toast giving it a savory crunchy topping. The bread is soft on the inside and gives the firm outside a nice balance. It’s not as sweet as I originally thought it would be, but I could still taste the flavor of the Cap’n Crunch cereal.
If I can remember correctly, the cost of the French Toast is $7.99 and it comes with fresh fruit, whipped cream, and powdered sugar…not bad for two heavenly pieces of delicious carbohydrates. The only downfall with this breakfast is Blue Moon Café doesn’t serve hot syrup 🙁 forgive me but I like my breakfast breads dripping in hot syrup. I asked the waitress why and she said something about “safety…hazard…hot liquids” – O.K. I get it. Surprisingly without the hot syrup, I enjoyed my French Toast very much. I’m starting to think that’s the idea…serve the toast with little distractions and lots of flavor.
