Bub’s Cafe is My Pick for Best Breakfast

Bub's Cafe Quiche

Bub’s Burgers  & Ice Cream on the Monon in Carmel has made quite a name for itself with it’s “Big Ugly” burger.  But slightly less well known is Bub’s Cafe, located just down the trail.  Bub’s Cafe serves breakfast and lunch Monday through Sunday, and as far as I’m concerned there is no other place to be on a Sunday morning.  Some go just for the “Bub Holes” alone, which are over-sized, freshly fried doughnut holes covered in your choice of traditional glaze, cinnamon sugar, powdered sugar or chocolate sauce.  In the mood for some big eating “Big Ugly” style?  Order the “Big Stack” 12 pancakes in buttermilk, banana, blueberry, chocolate chip or strawberry.  You really can’t go wrong with anything on the menu, but I strongly recommend trying one of the daily specials.  There is always a quiche of the day, along with other offerings.

The most recent special to grace my plate was the Scotsman–a hard-boiled egg wrapped in house made elk and pork sausage, topped with marinara and served atop a biscuit over gravy.  Yes,

Bub's Cafe Scotsman

you read that correctly.  It sounds strange, but it was amazing.  What made it so wonderful was that each and every element was perfectly prepared.  The egg was boiled perfectly–something I rarely see in restaurants, the sausage was flavorful and not the least bit greasy, and the biscuit and gravy would have made a great dish on its own.  Even the marinara was delicious by itself.  Altogether, it was a breakfast masterpiece.  After seeing the attention to detail and tasting the combination of flavors, I would eat anything this Chef put in front of me.
