Easter bunny’s coming to town: Madonna Inn will host an epic breakfast buffet this March 27 complete with omelet station, scrambled eggs, ham, sausage, bacon, fresh fruit, French toast, au gratin potatoes, fresh muffins, mini bagels and cream cheese, sausage and gravy, fresh-squeezed OJ, and—of course—coffee and Madonna Inn cake! Not sure you can handle the feast? Kick back with the inn’s seasonal Peeptini, which will be chirping around the bar through March 31. I’ll paint you a picture: It’s pink, it’s boozy, and (yes, you guessed it), it’s topped with a perky little marshmallow Peep.
Beda’s Biergarten is offering a new German delicacy for $6! If you’re feeling like a beer and a bite, try the Roggelchen, a freshly baked German roll served with your choice of cheeses and meats. Just be careful, this hearty “snack” can quickly turn into a meal when paired with a side of sauerkraut! (3230 Broad St. SLO; bedasbiergarten.com) … You’ve had a club sandwich, but have you had one on a house-made croissant, topped with an over-easy fried egg? If not, you might need to hightail it over to Kitchenette in Templeton, where culinary artistry meets diner and no sandwich is sacred (105 S. Main St. in Templeton; kitchenettetempleton.com).
