My parent's found Theo's decades ago when it was a few miles away on San Marco Avenue and they made it their EVERY Saturday breakfast spot.
My folks love Theo's.
They are so regular, that the Theo's crew starts cooking their order the minute they see them come in the door.
I love this place too ...
... not just because of the great breakfasts ...
... or the "cover your plate" sized delicious fresh cinnamon buns ...
When Dad fell and broke his leg a month ago, the good folks at Theo's called to check on them and offered to deliver their traditional breakfast. Theo's doesn't deliver take out by the way ... they were just taking care of my folks out of the goodness of their hearts. They knew Mom doesn't drive and with Dad down, getting to Theo's would be a problem.
Luckily, my brother stepped in for the delivery, so the busy Theo's crew only had to make the breakfast ... but wasn't that an amazing example of caring about your customers?
Like I said, I love this restaurant.
She seems to be almost recovered and is grunting normally, eating with gusto, and breathing so much clearer.
Thanks for your concern.
She does seem to have developed a Gatorade habit though during her sick spell. In the picture above, Mrs. FC is administering a little Ade mixed with an antibiotic.
Just so we have a little nature on this nature blog today, I've included a heavily cropped distant shot of a pair of Hooded Mergansers rafting on the San Sebastion River. I took this just outside of Theo's as I waited to pick up Mom and Dad's breakfast last Saturday.
Oh, yeah ... and what is FC's favorite chick flick?
"Sliding Doors" with Gwyneth Paltrow and some guy with a great Scottish accent. Mrs. FC and I watched it yesterday again. She got weepy, I did not.
It ain't "The Yearling" or Old Yeller", after all, so no tears from me.
(and since you are going to ask ... no, I have not seen "Marley and Me"... when I do, it will be in the privacy of my own home)
Now you know.
