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 $7, you get $14 worth of breakfast and lunch fare at Tom Sawyer Restaurant & Pastry Shop in Boca Raton.
Tom Sawyer Restaurant & Pastry Shop bakes, fries, poaches, and scrambles up Southern-inspired breakfast and lunch with home-cooked flavor. Early birds peck at comforting breakfast platters such as biscuits and gravy ($6), buttermilk biscuits with sausage gravy ($6), and the croissant french toast ($5.75). The four-egg farmer's omelet crams hen droplets with ham, onions, green peppers, potatoes, and tomatoes with two generous sides ($7.75), causing chickens to shed feathers in proprietary jealousy. Or drop in for lunch, with options including diner staples such as buffalo wings ($7.25), the Carolina burger topped with chili and coleslaw ($8.50), and the roast-turkey dinner with stuffing and cranberry sauce ($8.75)—as nostalgia-inducing as a memory box full of baby shoes, birthday cards, and bronzed headgear.
Located near Florida Atlantic University, Tom Sawyer Restaurant & Pastry Shop serves breakfast from 7 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and lunch from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. during the week, with breakfast extending until 2 p.m. on weekends. The warm, wood-paneled dining room provides a cozy brunch atmosphere for early risers, college students, and binocular-wielding scientists studying the pancake in its native habitat.
Tom Sawyer Restaurant & Pastry Shop
With red-checkered curtains, wood-paneled walls, and electric lanterns over the tables, Tom Sawyer Restaurant & Pastry Shop evokes the feel of a homey general store. To accompany the frontier-like ambiance, the cooks spend their mornings whisking together hearty breakfasts of scrambled eggs and buttermilk pancakes with enough syrup to float a log cabin. Although the restaurant's lunch specials rotate daily, certain homestyle favorites—including orders of fried chicken and open-faced turkey sandwiches—regularly fly out to tables until 2 p.m. when the kitchen closes.
