We went back in time to revisit Kelly’s Place 292 East Main Street, Norton, MA. Before we started this blog, Mike and I had breakfast here so I thought we should give it a review. Kelly’s is not really out of the way, maybe 1 ½ miles off of 495 and a few mile from Norton Center. They have a few outside tables but we decided to enjoy the inside. It is a large place that also serves lunch daily and dinner on the weekends. Coffee came quickly, there were only a few customers at this time. First round of coffee was just to my liking, not too hot, in a nice size mug, with a very good flavor. The refills were more to Mike’s liking, very hot. I chose the Vegetable omelet which came with red and green peppers, onions, broccoli, and mushrooms. All the veggies, except the mushrooms, were chopped nice and small, including the broccoli. This is a n important feature with veggies in an omelet because you do not want huge chunks of one and tiny bits of another, a uniform texture. The only feature of the omelet that I would have changed was the cheese. I thought they had too much and it really overpowered the rest of the items. The home fries were very good. A great spice which I think was smoked paprika, could have been a little more crispy. Kelly’s is a really nice breakfast place that I would recommend. Coffee, 8; home fries, 8; meal, 8. This math is easy, Overall, 8. Kelly’s open 7 days a week.
Sooooooo, Kelly’s Place. Nice! This week’s road trip wasn’t really a road trip…just a mere four or five Seekonks away, almost, but not quite, into Mansfield. Ray’s probably mentioned this was a return trip. I was cool with that. Kelly’s is not a typical breakfast joint. Bright, clean lines, al fresco dining. Ray and I really like a classic diner type of place but this is about the food. Kelly’s does breakfast well! Nice! The coffee was a cut above average. The second cup (hot) better than the first tepid one. I went with a skillet breakfast…basically my unusual in a pan WITH CHEESE! Brilliant! Who doesn’t like cheese? Maybe a bit too much but really, who doesn’t like cheese? Very, very nice! And the homefries? Wow! No spices needed. Smokey paprika? Whatever. Very, very tasty and cooked well. And they were in with the cheese! Aaah! Maybe we should rate our breakfasts by how many exclamation points we use! Very nice choice, Ray! (eleven, if you’re counting) Let’s give the coffee a 7 and the homefries and the meal nine each. That’s an 8.2 Nice!
