Best Breakfast for Dinner
Critics, upstate: Lucky’s Coffee Shop and Restaurant is open seven days a week, and it serves breakfast all day, so if you missed it in the morning, this is your place. The menu includes short and tall stacks of pancakes, Belgian waffles, grits, scrapple, bagels and creamed chipped beef. Three-egg omelets are stuffed with fillings such as smoked salmon, corned beef hash, pepper Jack cheese, olives and amazingly fresh spinach and mushrooms. Owner Mickey Donatello revamped the former Ranch House Restaurant, a breakfast classic, in 2007. And he’s been doing a land-office business on Saturday and Sunday mornings ever since. It’s a good thing the waiting area has a comfortable multi-colored Nelson marshmallow sofa. Booths are covered in green fabric, lipstick-red leather chairs fill the dining room and Chinese lanterns hang from the ceiling. The art deco counter has 12 seats that swirl. And there’s a mirrored disco ball near the restrooms. What does this have to do with breakfast? Absolutely nothing. But it sure is fun. (4003 Concord Pike, Wilmington, 477-0240)
