Milton is becoming a hot spot for new shops and restaurants on Delaware’s coast, including Good Morning Breakfast Nook, a casual breakfast and lunch eatery. The restaurant opened earlier this year in the Paynter’s Mill development, minutes off Route 1.
The restaurant is small, but my husband and I scored two seats at the counter around 10 a.m. on a Sunday.
The menu is traditional, with platters, sandwiches, omelets, pancakes and French toast for breakfast, plus soups and salads, sandwiches, quesadillas, burgers and paninis for lunch.
My husband spotted someone enjoying a plate of French toast nearby, so he immediately jumped on the opportunity to order his own. I opted to build my own omelet, which starts at just $6. While the restaurant was busy, we ended up waiting only 25 minutes for our food to arrive. And when it did, my turkey sausage, American cheese and spinach omelet arrived without the spinach.
But, the food was tasty and definitely affordable; my three-egg omelet was only $7.25 and my husband’s order of French toast—with a side of bacon and two eggs—rang in at $9.
The restaurant offers a special breakfast for $5 and lunch for $7 on Tuesdays for people ages 60 and up.
The restaurant will be open for dinner in a few weeks, according to owners Dina and Oscar Escamilla. But, for now, the restaurant is open every day from 6:30 a.m.–3 p.m.
