They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Eating breakfast gives us the energy to function early in the day so one should never skip it. whether you’re having breakfast at home or dining out, it’s always a good idea to have a hearty meal to jump start your day. Here at home, the typical breakfast is usually a sandwich and coffee so sometimes when I feel like eating something else, I go out to the nearest cafe or fast food joint that serves breakfast. Saves me the time to prep and cook. I can just order and enjoy my breakfast a few minutes later. It’s a nice way to enjoy something different from what I normally have for breakfast. Breakfast is usually served at cafes and fast food joints, but these days, more and more restaurants have begun offering breakfast fare. Take Mario’s.
