Sunday breakfast spot

Most Sundays I go out to breakfast. My favorite restaurant for breakfast is Sully’s Cafe in downtown Milwaukie. Everything is fresh, made from scratch and local whenever possible. Once a month they have for the special a fresh Dungeness crab leg omelet. The omelet is filled with spinach or asparagus, cheese and tomatoes. It is topped with about 8 big crab legs and a light Hollandaise sauce. It is really good and like with most of their breakfast dishes I usually have leftovers.

Sully’s is small, only about 10 tables inside and 3 outside. That’s one of the reasons I like it. The restaurant has a lot of regular customers. We talk to each other like we really know each other when in reality we only see each other eating breakfast and make some small talk.




This is one of the many hanging flower baskets along the streets of downtown MIlwaukie.



The photo below is of Gabi one of the waitresses. Gabi told me that she just registered to continue her college education, she is majoring in finance. It’s been a struggle for her but she keeps going even if she only takes a couple of classes a term. Good for her is what I tell her in my pep talks. All of the current waitresses happen to be Hispanic. There is a mother and daughter who work at Sully’s. Once I found out they were mother and daughter I wondered why I never noticed the resemblance before.


This was taken in the “Beauty” mode which “Enhances the skin tone and texture”. I did take a shot in the regular mode and I could see a little difference in the two photos. Gabi is very pretty and photogenic.



This is George. My daughter did not use to like him because he can be moody. Now Tara and Kelly think he is the funniest guy once they got to know him. Oh, yes Sully’s has become Tara and Kelly’s favorite place to eat breakfast too. George bought Tara and Kelly breakfast on their wedding anniversary without knowing it was a special day for them. He is a nice guy!



Delicious corned beef hash enough for leftovers for breakfast the next day.

  1. Jackie – when I lived in Canada going out for breakfast on Saturday or Sunday was a cherished routine. We had our favorite diner, which closed about the time I started spending most of my time in Mexico. Funny how one can look forward to that morning breakfast and how you miss it when you don’t have it. Here we rarely eat out, especially breakfast – so we have to develop other cherished routines.

    Great pictures with your new camera, by the way!


    • Thanks Sue. Tara and Kelly usually eat at Sully’s on Sundays too, just later than I do. A couple of weekends ago they went on Saturday instead and George told me that they just threw his whole schedule off. George said that he forgave though since they are so nice.

  2. Beauty mode.. I need that on my camera. Maybe I should read the instructions.
