Best Breakfast: Pete's Grille

3130 Greenmount Ave., 467-7698

Posted 9/18/1996

Whatever this newspaper may be, it’s not a den of morning people. When the sun is in the east, most of us are in a fog—we hardly feel up to something as complicated as getting ourselves fed.

That’s why we’re glad there’s Pete’s Grille. Seven days a week, we can trust owners Lou and Charmain Sharkey to get us through the hardest meal of the day, starting with the bottomless cup of fresh-brewed coffee, a mere 65¢. While our eyes creak open, the Sharkeys whip up spectacular home fries, huge omelets, and amazing—and amazingly large—pancakes and waffles (blueberries optional but highly recommended). And there’s Rapa scrapple, for mornings we need an extra-vigorous repast. By the time we leave, we’re stuffed and satisfied—almost enough to make a habit of it.
