Foursquare Tips

  • The ketchup here tastes magical. Nothing like the fake ketchup with all that nasty red coloring and other unhealthy stuff. I wish I could have the recipe!
  • super charming place with amazing food. Fresh juice, yum. However, not recommended if you're immediately starving or in a hurry. Expect to wait outside a long long time. Have coffee while you wait!
  • House-made ketchup FTW
  • Open in the former Jade West Cafe, Meander's Kitchen continues breakfast counter tradition with the best breakfast in town. Belly up to homestyle cooking including homemade ketchup and jam. Cash only.
  • Show up with no plans for at least an hour and a half. You can't rush food that is this good. The staff is a little sassy but are good at what they do. Make sure to read the inside cover of the menu.
  • Hungry for breakfast? Stop in and get the B&I omelet, the Fun Guy omelet, smoked salmon potato pancakes with creme fraiche or the Punk House Hash "epic" style. Cozy up to home-cooking in small cafe.
  • Note: Cash only!
  • Homey atmosphere. Tatted/hipster looking dudes making delicious food. Very small spot with limited seating but really cool vibe. Def a mom & pop shop with a list of funny rules in the menu. Great food
  • If you don't order biscuits and gravy, at least order something that comes with gravy. It's amazing!
  • Android/iPhone users: check out the negative Yelp! reviews for a good laugh while eating here. "The smoke in this place hurt my boyfriends eyes", "everything was amazing but they were mean to me".
  • Bring a friend and your appetite on a cool afternoon and warm up with a lumberjack-sized breakfast to chase the chill with an order of Afton's Hot Mess - broccoli, black beans, cheesy grits and eggs.
  • Omgosh! What happened to Meander's? It was like walking into a smoke bomb! Had to leave, b/c beside the long wait, the smoke no bueno for my little girl. Bummer!
  • There is nothing here that isn't great! Sit at the counter of you can get a seat for the full experience.
  • Their gravy is amazing, as well as their homemade ketchup and jam. Dungeness crab Benedict with hollandaise to die for. And their chicken fried steak! Everything is good here!
  • Corned beef hash!
  • It's breakfast only so be in the mood for eggs and bacon.
  • 1) cash only. 2) best biscuits ever. 3) sit at a stool so you can watch the cook.
  • Try the Biscuits and Gravy - You can definitely taste the homemade goodness in every bite!
  • Try the French Toast - Thick-sliced challah bread w/fresh whipped cream and homemade marionberry jam. Super yumm!
  • Insane corned beef hash, but be prepared to wait.
