Monday is always a crazy day and they say breakfast is the most important meal of day. I skipped breakfast this morning so I figured why not have it for lunch?! So I picked up my ever so loyal food reviewer, Amanda and we made our way to 696 4th Street in downtown Hollister to visit my friends at the Country Rose.
We were greeted by one of the owners of the Country Rose, Sharon Baker and the 2x Free Lance voted Best Waitress Suzie Fretias! How lucky were Amanda and I? We have both been to Country Rose many times so we both pretty much knew what we wanted and knew breakfast was on the mind!
I ordered the Huevos Rancheros. I told you in an earlier blog entry I was going to start eating more vegetables but I guess I will start that tomorrow! Huevos Rancheros is a glorious feast - a fried tortilla with refried beans coat the crispy shell. Two eggs cooked over easy rest in the shell along with salsa, cheese, sour cream and slices of avocado. It was very tasty. I mean I could not even put a dent in it - the portions are huge! It normally comes with toast and hash browns or home fries but I asked for it not come with it! I am such the health conscious one ;)
Amanda's Potato Pile came at the same time mine did and boy, did it look good! You know when you go to a restaurant with someone and you get ordering envy... I may have had that today! The Potato Pile is a mixture of bacon, sausage home fires, onions, bell peppers, scrambled eggs all covered with cheddar cheese and topped with sour cream and avocado. WOW! This is a Country Rose favorite!
The Country Rose not only serves great breakfast but that also have an outstanding lunch menu as well. I would also like to point out they are very active in the community and are Chamber members of San Benito County! So, remember if you want to see a friendly face, along with real food head on down to Country Rose. They will be happy to see you! Two thumbs up from me!
