Cafe 222

September 9, 2007

Back to an old favorite.

Good coffee while waiting for a table.

Good oatmeal. Hearty. Hot. Flavorful. Something to chew on.

Pastel colors. Service dishes changed again. Good-sized bowls.

Maybe a bit too much brown sugar. Each of us had to spoon some sugar to the side before eating.

Oatmeal Penrose Colorado

September 2, 2007

Penrose: A dot on the map on the way to Canon City and the Royal Gorge.

Restaurant: Michelles? Brass Horse? We couldn't be sure of the name of the restaurant.

Oatmeal. $2.75. Raisins. Milk in a stainless pitcher. Unremarkable.

Institutional coffee. Hot and plenty of it.

Very good service from a solicitous waiter.

World Famous Oatmeal

August 5, 2007

A wonderful beach restaurant. Who would think they would serve oatmeal with their Screwdrivers and Mimosas? Dark inside the restaurant. Bad for reading the paper, good for seeing the beach.

"Hearty oatmeal. Simmered to order served with brown sugar raisins and whole milk." $5.25

Coffee: Hot and served quickly. Rich. Chicory flavor.

Two oatmeals. One runny, one thick and a bit gooey. Probably instant. Hot. Good sized bowls. Acceptable, not outstanding.

Golden raisins. Light brown sugar. Milk. All in little pitchers.
