But back to Iowa - they have a huge Farmers Market in downtown Cedar Rapids - I should have taken pics but I wanted one day blog-free! While there - my friends introduced me to Rileys - where they serve something called the Shipwreck. How can that not be good?!
I had a bite and it was delish! So we decided to hit Riley's up for breakfast later in our trip.
The biscuits were a little thick and heavy - I prefer them more light and airy. The gravy was good and the eggs/toast were great as well.
Tanner being Tanner - munching away on his eggs and hashbrowns. :-)
In this concoction you'll find a biscuit, a hamburger (yes at 8am), a sausage pattie (maybe 2), hashbrowns, tomatoes, onions and potatoes. It was supposed to come with eggs but Larry asked them to instead POUR SAUSAGE GRAVY OVER IT!
I wonder what it's called? Heart Attack on a Plate maybe? And yes - the husband with 7% body fat enjoyed it! Argh!!!
Why Should You Go? I'd say that this place gives Hamburg Inn a run for it's money on breakfast - so for Cedar Rapids - it's my new go-to choice!
