Growling stomachs can hamper stealth operations, spoil belly dances, or, in extreme cases, induce dogs to attack. Quiet whimpering tummy tones with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of diner fare at The Silver Spoon, located in Easthampton.
The Silver Spoon's century-long, well-seasoned history inspires a full range of classic diner staples for both breakfast and lunch. Rouse a slumbering stomach without the aid of a boisterous alarm clock or pistol shot with The Silver Spoon special, a heaping portion of three eggs prepared in any style and responsibly chaperoned by bacon, sausage, or ham steak and home fries and toast. Pancakes or french toast provide the perfect canvas for Pollock-esque gobs of real maple syrup, while kid-size portions of eggs, pancakes, or french toast let wee ones mimic the chews and satiated sighs of their parental overlords. Diners can also witness the mythical and storied creation of eggs benedict from a stool-side spot at the counter facing the open kitchen.
Midday mealers can pop into The Silver Spoon for savory lunch bites, including the tuna-melt sandwich, which sports slices of swiss, tomato, and bacon slathered in thousand island dressing and gently hugged between two overprotective slabs of sourdough bread, and the vermont chicken sandwich, featuring canadian bacon and a fillet-flattering frock of barbecue sauce. The Silver Spoon keeps its spring-laded drawbridge open for mass mealing seven days a week but closes it dramatically at 2 p.m.
####The Silver Spoon
Chefs' spatulas have flipped pancakes and eggs in The Silver Spoon’s kitchen since 1984. In 1996, Jeff took over the neighborhood staple, leading Mark Roessler of the Valley Advocate to laud its current incarnation for its specialty, the Crow’s Nest: a bed of hash browns and poached eggs doused in hollandaise sauce. Such delights come out of the kitchen all morning and afternoon on the arms of servers carefully delivering lunch and breakfast goodies to each table. Under the glow of stained-glass lighting, silverware clatters against plates as patrons, ready to dig in, perch upon red-upholstered booths flanked by dark wood wainscoting that gives the room the feel of a homey log cabin. Kids' menus are also available for breakfast and lunch, with offerings of kid-size french toast and chicken fingers.
