stone soup: south of young omlette

My big brother and sister-in-law are in town for the weekend from San Antonio, so this morning we met for breakfast at Stone Soup Cafe and Market on Cooper.  I’ve wanted to try it out for a while, and this morning was the perfect opportunity to try breakfast.

After a quick trip to the Cooper Young Farmers Market – more on that to come – I hopped (ok, maybe it was more like skipping) across the street to secure a table.  At 10 a.m., the café was bustling, but not to busy that you had to wait for a table.  My favorite kind of busy.

When Ben and Rhi joined, I stared at the menu for at last 15 minutes – everything looked so good.  But in the end, I settled upon the South of Young Omelette, a Mexican-flavored omelette – get it? south of the border, south of young – clever.  The three-egg omelette filled with sauteed onions, green peppers and melted cheddar cheese. For that tex-mexi kick, it is served with sour cream and salsa on the side.  I also got a huge biscuit on the side.

It was yummy!  The omelette was cooked well, despite being a little greasy. The flavors were great, and the egg was just set and not rubbery.  Overall – great breakfast on a Saturday morning with your big brother.
