Real Food

It’s not much,
but it’s clean. Spotless.
Small. Nothing fancy,
never was. Real food.
Closed for the night,
and weekends.

It’s not a place
for latte and croissant.
Breakfast. The bacon sizzles,
eggs cooked to order,
sunny and runny
to dip your crusts.

Not open late,
it knows its place.
The coffee is hot,
and ready to go. Early.
A smile over the grill,
the morning hello.

A big smile for Jimmy The Greek who treated thousands of guests at The Crowbar, Princess & Adelaide (DT Toronto), for decades. Jimmy retired a while back, and breakfasts aren’t the same for so many.
