I should have asked the waitress if the gravy was sausage-based, but in my past experiences, the menu will always state what the gravy is made from unless it’s plant-based or flour. I assumed it was mushroom-based and was completely incorrect. According to Caitlin, real gravy is always made from sausage and “clearly I’m not from the South”.
Oh well. You live and learn.
Breakfast at The Crow’s Nest, Kalamazoo, MI:
The biscuits were fluffy, but dry (probably because they’re best eaten with the gravy). Potatoes were well-seasoned, if not on the peppery side. I do wish I had been able to eat the gravy.
Beverages at the Black Owl Cafe, Kalamazoo, MI:
This was espresso mixed with seltzer and crushed mint leaves. Interesting concept but not something I’d drink.
Too sweet unfortunately.
Not spicy or flavourful enough. Tasted more like steamed milk. The Black Owl is a really cute cafe with some odd owl decor though. I think their coffee may be better than their teas, although they offer a vast selection of loose leafs.
A Jenny and Michelle night! We’re watching some films on Netflix while enjoying our dinner. New definition of TV dinners. 😉
Pro tip: pretzel bread from Whole Foods is surprisingly fluffy, not overly salty and keeps well! Definitely recommend!
