The Plate: A burrito that’s worthy of breakfast

The Plate: Breakfast Burrito

The Place: East Ocean Café, 412 E. Ocean Ave., Boynton Beach; 200-6006 or

The Price: $8

The Skinny: When I was a young man living in Delray Beach, my dad and mother would drive over to visit from Fort Myers. We’d go to breakfast at Ken & Hazel’s, on Atlantic Avenue just west of the tracks. 

My dad loved the place because it’s where the local folks dined — plumbers, lawyers and accountants all stopped off for a cup of joe and camaraderie before heading out for the day.

That’s how this tiny corner of lunch and breakfast comfort feels. Mayor Steven Grant was holding court with a constituent on the sidewalk outside this place, where the burrito was packed with fluffy scrambled eggs and chunks of sausage. It was good, if not good for you, and a treat to visit someplace where everyone would know your name the next time you came to dine.
