Portable Feast in “Old Town” Lansing
Bryan and I have found a new breakfast spot that we absolutely love, Portable Feast & Friends. The restaurant is on Turner Street in Old Town. We’ve gone there the last 3 Saturdays and every time the quality of the food is superb and the staff keeps my coffee cup topped off. That is one of the things I MUST have in the morning… Lots of coffee. Not only does the coffee flow freely, it’s great coffee!
I’ve only gotten two items off the menu so far. A Blackstone and the Creole Skillet. The first time we went I got the Creole Skillet, which comes in 3 varieties; ham, bacon or veggies. As you may have guessed I got the veggie version. It was to die for. Not only was the flavor combination, fantastic it was beautiful! Bryan got the Grilled Breakfast Panini, bacon of course, and devoured it.
The next week Bryan got the Bacon version of the Creole Skillet which he said was phenomenal as well, but then again he’s addicted to bacon. 🙂 He wants a bacon man with and bacon house. I settled on the Blackstone. I didn’t enjoy it as much as the Creole Skillet, but that may be because I really wanted the skillet, but decided to be adventurous and try something else from the menu.
This last weekend we went back and I had the Creole Skillet again, unfortunately I don’t remember what Bryan had… I was too busy devouring the skillet. They were also trying to decide on whether or not to bring in a new cheesecake and asked us to try a sample. Now I haven’t had cheesecake since the great cheesecake melting disaster of 1994, but I put on a brave face and ate it. It was really quite good. It was a chocolate cheesecake with pecans, caramel and some kind of a crumble. If the rest are that good I may… may I say… lift my personal cheesecake ban. We’ll just have to wait and see. Overall, I would highly recommend Portable Feast & Friends to food eaters everywhere! 😉
