Dutch Wooden Shoe Cafe is Kitschy Cool

Posted in Breakfast by Missy Shana on October 30, 2009

Dutch Wooden Shoe CafeThe Dutch Wooden Shoe Cafe (phew, that’s a mouthful!) is comparable to Slickety Jim’s in the way that the interior is completely covered in kitschy decorations and vintage memorabilia, but the Wooden Shoe is also covered in funny and embarrassing  photo’s of their past clientele. It’s tacky and also kind of distracting when you’re trying to have a conversation, and your eye drifts to a funny photo of a family, posing mid-bite, during their breakfast.

The menu was limitless. They had so many options of omlettes, pancakes, benny’s, and breakfast combination’s to choose from. I could have almost any topping I wanted on my egg’s benny like ham, salmon, veggies, bacon or spek. Spek is dutch style bacon that is so crispy it almost crumbles in your mouth, I urge you to try it! The Spek Benny I ordered came on a crunchy toasted biscuit (which I believe is essential to a good benedict), creamy hollandaise and tiny cubed hash browns.

I don’t have any complaints about this restaurant, but take note: this isn’t the kind of place that charges less than $10 per meal, so bring at least a twenty if you’re looking to have orange juice $4 or coffee with your meal. Also, If you’re cheeky enough, I dare you to bring your own camera and take a picture of yourself to post on their wall.
