I am about to introduce you to the best breakfast I’ve ever had. Food Craft, formerly Home Kitchen, changed my life over 2 years ago when it revealed to me blueberry pancake perfection.
Food Craft…ok. I’m just going to call it Home Kitchen because I think the original name is better fitting and it’s ingrained into my head. I know that they rebranded the restaurant for marketing reasons, which I accept and understand. This summer they made the leap from a solely breakfast / lunch restaurant to one that offers 3 meals a day, complete with a bar. Anyways, Home Kitchen is just a more endearing name, don’t you think?
Now let me tell you the story of me, Lisa (my little), and Home Kitchen…
This place first came up junior year when one of my guy friends and I were discussing our love of breakfast. “I’ll have to take you to Home Kitchen. They serve breakfasts in actual skillets!” Alas, the conversation was forgotten amongst papers and college activities and we never made it together. BUT one weekend, probably a semester later, Lisa and I made the decision to try it. We found it situated at the end of a K-Mart strip mall in Yorktown, walked in and were seated at a two-top table by a window. Lisa and I are sweet-cravers, so we passed over the skillet meals and went straight to the pancakes and French toast list. Now, Home Kitchen has a giant “specials” chalkboard that is ever-changing. (I’ve heard rumors of zucchini pancakes. YUM!).
Our first meal at Home Kitchen, I believe, was –
We walked in and, as usual, our eyes darted towards the chalkboard. Banana pecan pancakes, check. Pumpkin pancake, dang. Choices, choices! But wouldn’t you know they let us order a single pumpkin pancake on the side for us to try, in addition to our “usuals”. I LOVE HOME KITCHEN.
True to form, we ate our lives away at a two-top table by the windows…maybe I crushed mine a little harder than she did. I have a passionate tummy. And I’m running a half marathon. And I don’t get to eat here very often anymore. It’s fine.
