Keep it 'Simple'.....

It's been a while since we've visited our favorite breakfast place, Simple Simon's, in Riverside, so we decided to walk over on Real Saturday about 0830 to meet Nick, Kate and Charlise for breakfast.....they would normally have walked with us, but they were a little behind getting their home ready for 'Open House' so they drove over to meet us.

The walk over was delightful.....once again the high temp for the day was forecast to be in the low 80's, and the skies were clear.  It's only about a .75 mile walk each way, and takes less than 15 minutes to cover.


We almost always sit outside as it gets a little noisy inside on Saturdays (they are closed on Sundays) when occupancy is at it maximum......


I love their brief breakfast menu!

....Simple Simon's is in what we call the 'walking mall', which used to be Main Street, along the western side of the famous Mission Inn.  They serve breakfast from 0730 to 1100, and lunch from 1100 to 1700 each day except Sunday when they are closed.  I love their breakfast menu as it is so 'simple'....they offer 10 things, and their omelettes are to die for.....I usually order the Spinach/Bacon omelette which comes with fried country potatoes, and toast, which is what I ordered this day.....


......they make all of their bread, and pastries on site.....all ingredients are fresh......plus we love their coffee which features unlimited refills......it's not hard for me to believe they still have a 4 star rating on Yelp based on 676 reviews.  The alfresco dining area is a place where you are inclined to take your time eating and just enjoying the ambiance, but soon it was time to move on....

Walking back toward Mission Inn Ave. after breakfast

.......while Nick, Kate and Charlise headed for their car, TLE and I walked across Mission Inn Ave. to the Mission Galleria antique shop......it is 4 floors of really cool stuff!  I think we have only bought something there one time, but love spending an hour, or so browsing through all four floors.....


....we were home by 1100 hours.  I spent some time watching golf, puttering around in the trailer, reading, and taking a nap.....the 'Open House' was from Noon until 1500 hours so we just hung out mostly inside.

Thanks for stopping by!
