After spending the morning visiting thrift stores for a treasure hunting “morning date”, Jason and I both were hungry and started hunting for breakfast options on Venice Ave.
After a recent social media contest looking for opinions on whether the delicious breakfast meat sandwich combination is called Taylor Ham or Pork Roll, I won a free sandwich to try it out for myself!
#TeamTaylorHam all the way and they are doing it right. Cooked just the way I like it and served on a Kaiser roll, it was comfort food treat. Jason went for his usual biscuits and gravy and his remark was that it was surprisingly good for a yankee.
We were able to chat with the owner and discovered he’s from the same town as my mother in New Jersey. Like my father used to say, “It’s a small world, but I sure wouldn’t want to paint it.”
As we sat inside, (this was one of the very cold mornings) a couple who appeared to be homeless sat outside and enjoyed a cup of coffee. It was heartwarming to observe two other tables offer to pay for a hot meal for them. Venice, you never cease to amaze me.
