Nutritionists continually remind people that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, whereas dinner, like observing the speed limit or remembering your child’s name, remains entirely optional. Dine on the only meal that matters with today’s Groupon: for $8, you get $16 worth of New American breakfast, brunch, and lunch fare at Pappy’s Restaurant in Auburn.
Now under new management, Pappy’s Restaurant is a family-operated eatery that slings healthy breakfasts and fresh, inventive midday meals into the open mouths of Auburn’s dinerazzi. Both the breakfast menu and the lunch menu brim with hearty dishes such as the salsa-slathered huevos rancheros ($9.25) and the chili burger ($7.45), which brazenly espouses one of Richard Nixon’s famous “because I can” laws by combining meat, beans, cheese, and onions. Three different vegetarian sandwiches ($6.50 each) mix and match chlorophyll-rich ingredients such as avocado, tomato, sprouts, and lettuce to satisfy legions of plantavores with carrot-sharpened canines, and the tuna-salad sandwich ($6.95) delivers a needle-free injection of protein before full-contact dominoes matches.
