When an uneven distribution of mosh pits causes the earth's axis to flip Antarctica-over-Alaska, breakfast will become the frumpy finale of the day instead of its roaring opener. Enjoy breakfast's treasured time slot while you still can with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of breakfast and lunch café fare at Le Peep Grill, with locations in Denton, Flower Mound, Frisco, Irving, and Plano.
The down-home chefs at Le Peep Grill please palates of all persuasions with savory dishes from a combined breakfast and lunch menu. Throughout the day, banana-walnut pancakes ($6.99) satiate sweet cravings, and bean-and-chorizo huevos rancheros ($8.99) stay snuggled under blankets of salsified eggs to rouse morning appetites. Chefs dust signature battered french toast ($6.95) in powdered sugar, and sate smaller cravings with light menu specialties, including the turkey-and-broccoli omelet ($8.79). The fifth-season homemade chicken-salad flatbread ($8.98) highlights a star-studded list of handhelds, which include burgers and grilled wraps, but not the ever popular edible fork.
Le Peep's focus on breakfast and lunch stems from a decision made more than 40 years ago, when Buddy and Rhoda Waldman opened The Village Pantry in Aspen, Colorado, and—not wanting to miss a half day of skiing—would close the kitchen each day before noon. The duo would continue to tinker with their concept, stare at it through a novelty-sized microscope, and change its name before it eventually migrated to Texas.
Nowadays, the kitchen staff perpetuates the breakfast-crafting tradition by offering omelets, eggs benedict, skillets, and build-your-own pancake options that use ingredients such as walnuts, bacon, pineapple, and chocolate chips. Traditional dishes are augmented with unique twists, such as the Gooey Buns, english muffins broiled with brown sugar, cinnamon, and almonds and served with a signature side of Mom's Sassy Apples. During midday hours, a variety of salads, burgers, and sandwiches parades out of the kitchen accompanied by smoothies, juices, or Mother Parkers coffee. Le Peep's catering service delivers breakfast and lunch fare to homes, events, or filibustered neighborhood-watch meetings.
