Today, I chose the Village Special: two eggs, home fries, two pieces of toast, and a choice of tea/soda/coffee for $5. My second choice was the Power Breakfast: two eggs, home fries, toast, pancake, and juice and coffee for $7. I eat eggs every day for breakfast, and I know what two scrambled eggs looked like - the serving was more like three or four eggs with a generous heaping of home fries and toast. Emily’s Breakfast Burrito was the size of her head, covered in peppers, tomatoes, onions, and home fries and stuffed with egg and sausage. It was more of a Breakfast Explosion, and smelled fantastic. Stephanie’s French Toast looked delicious. VD also serves up a mean portion of Biscuits and Gravy and a phenomenal bowl of Oatmeal and Granola.
Village Deli also serves up quite a selection of lunchtime sandwiches, too. I’ve had falafel sandwiches, Caribbean chicken, melts, and croissants. Try the Sandwich on the Brink: chicken, bacon, onion, mayo and bleu cheese. VD has a great variety for vegetarians as well. All burgers can be made with turkey patties or veggie patties and served up veggie chili, and they have many salads, too. Again, try the falafel sandwich pita.
Breakfast is served until 10am through the week. Get there at 7 or 8am and you can get pancakes, biscuits, and gravy or other specials for only $2.50, including coffee! Your scone and latte down the street at Starbucks will run you more than that! They serve breakfast all day Saturday and Sunday. Get there early - it is PACKED after nearby church services end.
Perfect for: Brunch with the parents on Parents Weekend or a late breakfast with friends
