The "A New Breakfast Stop" Story

Waiting for breakfast at Augie's
It was an ordinary day.  Waiting outside Augies Restaurant on 9th Street in Ocean City, New Jersey to get a table for breakfast.  For years my family has been staying at a condo across the street from Augies for our yearly vacation in Ocean City, but we never considered having breakfast there until this year when my son-in-law, Dave, said that he entered "Restaurants in Ocean City" on TripAdvisor and Augies came up #3.  Had great ratings so we decided to give it a try.  
Located in the lower level of the Coral Sands Hotel.
The restaurant is actually located under the Coral Sands Hotel and I guess it never occurred to us that it would be a great place to eat breakfast.  Well, we finally were called for seating and we entered the restaurant and were seated at two large round tables.  The interior was homey and featured a traditional seashore theme as do most restaurants along the shore.  
Interior of the restaurants.
The menu featured Inter- national Omelettes, Specialty Omelettes, Jersey Fresh Omelettes, Tratitional Omelettes, Frittatas, Eggs and Scramblers, Waffles, Hot Cakes, French Toast, Breakfast Burritos and the one item that caught my eye ... Senior's Breakfast.  Now, if I'm eating at one of the restaurants that features my favorite, cake donuts, I'd probably be able to consume half a dozen with a glass of milk for dunking, but I don't need an omelette that has zucchini, squash, broccoli, mushrooms, green peppers and marinara sauce mixed in with three large eggs or a waffle filled with walnuts, raisins, apples and whipped cream.

The Senior Breakfast which featured two eggs and two hot cakes was all I needed; that and a glass of orange juice, especially since I still had a donut or two left over from yesterday back at the condo that I had plans to pop in the microwave and dunk in a cup of milk.  The food arrived and we all enjoyed the conversation and nourishment and left knowing we had a new annual stop for breakfast which was only a minute walk from our condo.  And, I could see why it received the high rating on TripAdvisor.  Great food, courteous and quick service and a nice atmosphere.  It was another extraordinary day in the life of an ordinary guy.
