Scotty enjoys driving the streets of the ghost town that is DC at 5:45 AM. Parking will not get any easier as we pull up across the street from the cafÃ©, walk right in, and get the banana french toast and the Eastern Shore Omelette. We will be getting crab at the next three places we are eating at, so it’s a crab-off! After all is said and done, these guys take the #2 spot for crab breakfast and #3 in overall for crab-based foodstuffs.
Maybe it’s early, but we thought a few of the items on the menu were weirdly worded. Our videographer, Ben, attacks the french toast with gusto, and discloses that he doesn’t like cheese when he takes a bite of the crab omelette. WHAT? It is the first time I have heard anyone utter such blasphemy. Scott, a true frenchman, tells us about his meme’s (that’s grandma in French) apron with 365 types of cheeses displayed on it. I don’t know about you, but I’ve rarely met a fromage I didn’t like.
Afterwords CafÃ© wins the Pleasantly Surprised award for 24 in 24: DC. The choice was ridiculed by a few Yelpers in the pre-planning, but Peter and the chefs at Afterwords solidly proved them wrong.
Off to get our caffeine buzz on at Peregrine Espresso.
