Before breakfast was the first meal of the day, it was part of a midday supermeal—Dinner, Breakfast, Nash, & Young. Give breakfast’s solo work its proper respect with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of café fare and drinks at Dufour's in Irvington.
Boasting a full, all-day breakfast menu and a supporting lunch bill, Dufour's delights daytime diners with its home-style eats and quaint style. Early birds and jet-legged night owls can celebrate cracking dawns with the cracking eggs of the veggie skillet, a Dufour's specialty featuring baked egg, spinach, tomatoes, onion, cheddar, and mushrooms, served with a toasted whole-wheat bagel ($6.25). For the gluttonous, the restaurant bedazzles its breads du jour, tastily revamping loaves into slices of Mama Dufour's french toast, complete with a maple-syrup wading pool ($4.29), and Friday- and Saturday-morning munchers can pick five items from a sumptuous spread of foreday favorites, including eggs over easy, kielbasa slices, pancakes, or fresh fruit ($5.50). Afternoon noshings feature a savory roulette of daily specials, cemented by an everyday selection of salads, soups, and sandwiches. Carnivorous teeth-filled caves welcome homemade chicken salad served atop toasty waffle pontoons ($5.99), and plant-centric patrons find meatless solace with the glorified grilled cheese, where triplets swiss, muenster, and cheddar come swaddled in texas egg bread ($5.99).
For diners morally opposed to chewing, caffeinated cups from the café’s espresso bar will fork-lessly liven still-slumbering taste buds with cappuccinos ($2.89–$3.29), french-vanilla chai teas ($3.99–$4.99), and lattes ($2.89–$3.29). Diners at every hour can recline atop wooden, country-style chairs amid the light-letting windows of the shop's homey interior, and warmer months welcome lingering on the outdoor patio, which boasts a red-and-green-striped awning to protect patrons from rain and Indiana’s famed corn showers.
