Breakfast Reviews

For the past several months I have been doing reviews of the places I like to go for breakfast.  Like all good things I was bound to run out.  It’s not that there aren’t other excellent places for breakfast in the South County area.  It’s simply that these are all the ones I normally go to.

So, I have to make a choice.  I can move on to doing other kinds of food reviews – lunch, brunch, dinner. I could expand to a wider area – which would involve a lot of extra driving.  I could ask you for places that I haven’t tried and then go there.  Or I could simply stop here.

It has been fun, but I wouldn’t want to continue by recommending places I don’t think people would like.  And I don’t think you or I would get much out of dissing a restaurant in a review.  That’s not what I am about.

So, for this week, no recommendations.

I’m open to suggestions.  Got a place you would like me to try?  Think I should shift to lunch or dinner reviews?  Time to retire?  Speak up.  I’ll announce the decision next week.

 

Food Review – Aunt Carries

Aunt Carrie’s Seafood Restaurant

1240 Ocean Rd,
Narragansett, RI 02882

Not exactly breakfast, they typically don’t start serving until 11, but you have to mention them…

Aunt Carrie’s is a seasonal dining hotspot located near Point Judith very close to the ocean. Locals and vacationers have long crowded in during the summer for it’s excellent seafood  brunch, lunch and  dinners.  Not to mention the huge variety of pies they offer.

The building is a low single story affair with little parking. Locals will often park behind the ice cream store across the street (which is owned by the same people who run the restaurant.)

The entryway is wide enough for a wheelchair and, except for a small bump at the front door access is pretty easy.

Aunt Carries does not claim to be animal friendly, but people often buy from the open front booth area and then eat outside at the picnic tables in the back or across the street.
The food is very good, especially the seafood. The atmosphere is family friendly, not fine dining. You won’t find many suits at Aunt Carries, and you may find more than a few bathing suits outside.

I actually spent a good part of last summer trying each of the pies they offer and I found them all to be very good. The crust tends to be a bit doughier, mainly due to the fillings, so if you are expecting a light and flaky crust you might be a bit disappointed. You shouldn’t be disappointed by the taste, the size, or the quality of the ingredients in any of their meals.

Fish and seafood is fresh, and the batters are crispy. Meals are served quickly and the waitstaff is friendly and chatty.

Mark this one as another fun summer find and remember to save room for dessert.
