Lunch with an Old Friend: Bring on the Breakfast

     Perhaps it's our unusual sleep patterns. Or the Saturday-morning, comfort-of-home feeling that breakfast food embodies. Whatever the reason, there's some sort of mystical connection between college students and breakfast food.

Making your mouth water right now, isn't it?
     As you may remember, I blogged about going out to brunch with an old friend a couple of months ago. (See http://tinyurl.com/46woant.) The goal was to hit up a local, off-campus spot for breakfast each week. Given our budgets and schedules, we probably should have realized that this idea was a bit unrealistic from the beginning. We have managed, though, to make it around to several Bloomington breakfast joints. We recently tried out a little place on the west side: Cloverleaf Family Restaurant.

See the clover symbol? See it?
     Cloverleaf's menu is actually similar to Wee Willy's, the breakfast spot we hit up in November. It's an all-day parade of breakfast and other comfort foods. The low-down on the two spots: Willy's hashbrowns beat out the competition, but we preferred the combo options offered at Cloverleaf. Some of the other B-town breakfast spots we've tried and would recommend include the Runcible Spoon, yet another delightful little family-restaurant sort of place called Cozy Table, and the Sunday brunch at either  Bloomingfoods or at the Tudor Room in the IMU.

We love breakfast, yes we do!
We love breakfast, how 'bout you?
