Just on the outskirts of the Fall River boarder in Tiverton, RI, is this little out of the way restaurant, serving breakfast and lunch. Since this was not actually in Fall River, our streak of great breakfast places in that city was not broken. The Country Kitchen is similar to Percy’s place which we reviewed earlier, in that it has both a dining area and an adjacent gift shop. After talk of David Price ( yuk), Patriots ( hopeful) and the use of technology on our classrooms ( never going to be settled between us ), Mike and I settled in to this cozy diner. Lots of tables, most of the empty ones had tips and had not been “bussed”, but chose one. Coffee in nice size mugs was offered along with the menu. Coffee was eh, just ok, barely average. Out waitress pointed out the specials and left us to decide. After a bit of a wait…………., we ordered. I had the basic Western Omelet with cheese and home fries. I’ll start with the home fries which were fantastic! Great seasoning and just enough crispiness to make them delightful. My omelet fell to the same issue many do which is the chef put in so much cheese it took over everything in the omelet. I’d like to order “light on the cheese” but if I did I would not be reviewing the meal everyone got. Sorry to say not one of my best choices. Coffee, 5; home fries 9; meal,6; overall, 6.6
What a very, very confusing day! Ray told me yesterday he knew where we were going and, surprise! found it with no problem AND it was open! What!? I don’t remember how we got there, actually, but I love quirky places and this is one of those places. What’s not to like to about a restaurant which opens into a funky little convenience store? Nice! Even had to pay the tab in the convenience store! What’s up with that? The meal? Again, I was confused. I ordered the hash benny. Canned hash (ugh) but OUTSTANDING homefries. Middling coffee. It kinda throws me when one element if the meal is so, so, so good that it warrants caps in the review and then it’s not complimented by the other two elements. That’s too bad. That said, I place these taters as the best of the year. Well deserved praise. Coffee 6, benny 6 and a 9.5 for the homefries. Seven.
