On a cold cloudy Friday, I stepped into a warmth of sunshine at Ruggie's in Harwich with a feeling that this was going to be a breakfast to remember.
It's brightly colored orange walls warmed up my chilled bones and the newly tuned menu invited me to explore their creativity. You can create your own combo breakfast choices and never be disappointed.
My friend decided on 2 eggs scrambled with crispy thick bacon, golden flavorful home fries and a big fluffly pancake. It became a pleasant memory as soon as her fork touched the home cooked goodness. I had to try one of the "Melting Pot" creations which includes eggs, finely chopped potatoes, veggies and meat from the country you were exploring.
I choose the " Swiss Pot" which included roesti (potatoes), 2 fried eggs, ham and spinach topped with melted swiss cheese. You have to love cheese and all that great melted goodness to truly enjoy the melting pot dishes and each fresh ingredient combined to layered the flavor making the dish outstanding.
If you are super hungry and looking for a challenge, you could try the "Duke" 2 waffles, 6 eggs, ¼ lb. cheddar cheese, ¼ lb. American cheese, hash browns, Ruggie's gravy,2 buttermilk pancakes, 6 strips of bacon, 3 sausage patties, and 2 pieces of boneless fried chicken. $19.00
