|Dalia's Lounge fresh Mini Donuts|
I thought I'd have a big breakfast and D would have the fresh donuts but it turned out he wanted us to have the donuts as dessert. Obviously, how could I have though differently (shocked sarcasm). As soon as we were seated, I asked if could substitute the side of bacon for the Parmesan Homefries at no extra charge. I had warned D that if they wouldn't, I did not want to stay and I'd get an Egg Sandwhich at the adjacent Bakery instead. I get fussier about meat biased menus on an empty stomach :^D. They said it was cool, much to D's relief. It was pretty cold out and he wasn't much interested in brunch hunting.

As our server came back occasionally to refill D's coffee, she asked us how we were doing with our Donut plans. She noted our slow progress through our meals. It's funny about brunch. You know it doesn't sound like a lot of food. With an empty belly, it doesn't look like a lot of food. Then there you are with half your French Toast and a pile of Potatoes staring at you an half an hour later. I did a good job of it. I knew with the rest of our travel, we wouldn't be eating for several hours. D abandoned the potatoes. He had to parry my fork away.
