We were heading to
a diner in Cranston that turned out to be long gone.
Apparently in its place, a firehouse. Good news.
Firefighters know where the good breakfast places are.
Harriet's Kitchen, a long time Cranston breakfast haunt.
Fortunately we got there early enough on a Saturday to
not have to wait in line.
I did the corned be
hash. As I ordered I pleaded with the waitress to
make sure the soft boiled eggs were indeed soft.
When my order arrived there was a third poached egg in a
cup. "One of those eggs looked a little hard, so I
brought you another just in case." She may be my
favorite waitress of the year.
We also tried the
combination omelet - bacon, ham, sausage, mushrooms,
onions and cheese and a french toast and eggs combo
platter. I later learned that Harriet's whips up
some spectacular pancakes, too.
everything - the best home fries of the trip.
