Maple Black Pepper Bacon - its not just for breakfast!

Why is it that we are encouraged to start our day with a healthy breakfast?  The vast majority of us only know breakfast as the meal where you get to eat bacon, pancakes, waffles, omelets stuffed with bacon and cheese, eggs and bacon, toast with jelly and bacon, sausage link and patties with bacon on the side … I seem to be on a rant, but you get the idea.  We love bacon and we love it for breakfast!  So if you’re gonna have breakfast go to a place that’s known for its breakfast but also for its bacon and that means Sunny Point Café is the place for you.  Sunny Point is so proud of their breakfast they make it available all day long!

At Sunny Point Café the maple black pepper bacon is one of the most popular sides ordered.  They even give a variety of bacon facts on their website:
There are references to bacon in Chaucer's Canterbury Tales and the works of Shakespeare.  Hmm, does this support the theory that Shakespeare was the pen name of Sir Francis Bacon!  You decide.

The first reference to bacon served for breakfast is believed to be in London, 1560.

Bacon is a favorite hangover cure - in England a "bacon buttie" is eaten to soothe sore heads after a night of indulgence.  British scientists have actually come up with the formula for the perfect bacon buttie N = C + {fb(cm) . fb(tc)} + fb(Ts) + fc . ta  Really, Google it!

Kevin Bacon is more than the actor you love from "Footloose", he and his brother have a band, named... yep, you guessed it:  The Bacon Brothers.

Be prepared to wait because the secrets out and everyone in town knows that Sunny Point has a good breakfast and of course good bacon.  Don’t worry, you can grab a cup o’ joe and get the caffeine flowing and in nice weather you can enjoy a stroll through the garden.  What garden?  Well, Sunny Point has an adjacent garden that helps provide the nutritious local products they use to create their delicious meals.

But wait, there’s more…

What less locals know is that along with lunch, Sunny Point also offers dinner!  I know, who saw that coming!?  Yes, of course breakfast is available, but switch it up and try some of Sunny Point’s other delectable food.  They have a dedication to locally sourced products used to create dishes that draw us back again and again no matter what time of day we choose to return.

Be sure to check out the Sunny Point menu because they do have non-bacon dishes as well as healthy choice options on each menu.

  1. Great work on the blog, Kevin! I write the blog for an online food delivery service (called "BringMeThat"), and I was interested in using one of the images you posted (image URL below).

    I don't know if it's your photo, but I was wondering if it would be OK for us to use it and attribute to your blog with a link. Let me know. Thanks!
