TooJay’s Original Gourmet Deli has been a favorite restaurant of ours for years- long before they expanded into a local chain of gourmet delis. We love the diversity of the menu and the large selection of Vegetarian items. We often visit for lunch but recently we decided to check in for breakfast.
There’s the usual selection of omelets, eggs benedict and waffles. Plus they offer specialty things like Banana Fosters French Toast, Sweet Cheese Blintzes and Smoked Fish on Bagels.
Chad opted for the Roasted Veggie Omelet– roasted veggies like asparagus and onions folded into an omelet with spinach, tomatoes, Provolone and Parmesan cheeses sprinkled with a lemon-herb seasoning. Served with a side of salsa and home fries, this omelet was hearty and filling.
I chose the Western Skillet– a casserole with scrambled eggs, sauteed onions, green peppers tomatoes and cheddar cheese served on top of a crispy potato pancake. This dish is also normally served with ham but TooJay’s is very accommodating and happily left the meat off for me. I thought it was delicious. Even better with a few drops of tabasco sauce.
Both our breakfast dishes came with our choice of rye toast. I am not a huge fan of bread, however, TooJay’s must bake their own bread in house because the bread is always so thick and fresh. They even had my favorite apple butter. Yummy.
We enjoyed breakfast just as much as we love having lunch here and as usual the service was perfect.
TooJay’s has 24 locations in southern and central Florida including the original in the Dr. Phillips area of Orlando. All locations are open 7 days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Well worth a visit anytime of the day.
