I have a major complaint. If a restaurant wants to get in on breakfast service they need to open at least by 7 a.m., maybe earlier. Most people work. Yep, it’s true. And most working people need to be at work by 8 a.m.
My husband and I love going out for breakfast on a weekday, especially a Monday. We are business owners, so it gives us some time to sit and discuss the upcoming week. Time and time again, especially in Loveland, Colorado, we run into restaurants that proclaim to serve breakfast, but don’t open soon enough for us to partake.
This past week we drove down to Sofia’s Bistro located at 1120 N. Lincoln. I’d been there for lunch and was quite happy with my food. I’d recently heard their breakfast was very good too, so we were excited to give it a try.
As we pulled into the empty parking lot at 7 a.m., my heart sank. Sure enough Sofia’s doesn’t open for breakfast until 8 a.m. We ended up at Widow McCoy’s Restaurant & Lounge located at 1101 E. Eisenhower. McCoy’s serves up a good standard breakfast, although their coffee leaves much to be desired.
Sofia’s lost out on our business and will continue to lose out on our business unless they open their doors at an appropriate breakfast hour. And I’m quite sure we aren’t the only ones.
If you have a favorite Northern Colorado breakfast joint, please let me know!
