These warm days washed clean by spring rain have us raring to go in the morning. Sort of. We only hit the snooze button once. Okay, we could use a little help. Some protein - an omelette! But make it worth our time, because we could have had an extra nine minutes of sleep.
• The Blue Star has been a trademark Roslindale storefront for decades, and it’s no wonder why. We are most impressed by their German (ham, leek, and cheese) omelette, served with home fries and toast. Bonus: the best espresso in the Square.
• Visit any friend in JP, and they will take you to Sorella’s. Why? Because they know. They know that Sorella’s only uses fruits and vegetables that are in season, that it feels like your artsy aunt’s kitchen (complete with breakfast nook!), and that, in addition to the impressive selection of pancakes, they will put anything you want in an omelette. Our favorite? The Philly, which is stuffed with (surprise!) cream cheese. We like to ask for avocado, too.
• Then, of course, there’s the old breakfast standby in Inman Square, the S&S; Restaurant. There’s a reason it’s been around since 1919. We would highly recommend the heart-healthy garden omelette, made with Egg Beaters, dill havarti, broccoli, spinach, onions, mushrooms, and tomatoes.
