Breakfast on the Road

Sometimes it is worth revisiting a restaurant especially if you liked their dinner menu to see how the restaurant performs for breakfast and lunch. We first stopped at the Old Country Restaurant in New Hamburg during one of our road trips. We decided to revisit them to see how their breakfast menu and service compared.

Old Country Restaurant, Old Country Restaurant

The Old Country Restaurant is located at 105 Peel Street in New Hamburg, Ontario. The location is clean and unpretentious. Unlike a lot of the buildings in downtown section of New Hamburg, this building really has been stripped of any architectural appeal which really is a shame. During the summer months roll-out awnings add a bit of character but nothing that really says this building is old. Despite the non-descript exterior the interior conveys a warmth mixed with a homey feeling, comforting decor. The service is fast and friendly and the prices are quite reasonable!

When we are on the road a hot breakfast is always in order. I'm not sure why as we very seldom eat a hot breakfast at home. A hot breakfast is usually reserved for holidays and weekends even though there is no reason why we couldn't have a hot breakfast during the week. The last time we were in the New Hamburg area we stopped in at the Old Country Restaurant for breakfast where we settled in at a cosy table by the window where we could watch the comings and goings of main street while sipping on hot coffee.

My husband ordered the Old Restaurant breakfast specially consisting of 3 eggs, homefries, bacon, ham, sausage and toast. He ordered his easy over as they don't poach eggs. I ordered the 2 egg (sunny side up) Canadian breakfast with back bacon (peameal bacon), home fries and whole wheat toast. Both meals were very much home style cooking coming in at $16.67 total. This was slightly higher than the price elsewhere for 2 hot breakfasts but given the area with proximity to both the Stratford Chefs School and the GTA it wasn't over priced.
