The Palace Diner

The Palace Diner is the oldest restaurant in Maine, and it is well-known for its breakfast and lunch specialties.

The restaurant is small and doesn't take reservations. So, Kaitee and I arrived early, put our names on the list and waited outside for a couple seats to open up.

My buddy Josh works at this restaurant, so it's been on my list to try for years. Not just because of him - though that's a nice benefit - but because it's also well-known for its simple - but perfectly executed - menu.

When we were called, our seat were available right outside the kitchen so I could catch a glimpse of folks hustling around.

And, it pays to have friends in important roles, because Josh sent out some caramelized grapefruit for our first bite. I can easily say this is the best grapefruit I've ever had. I'm not a huge grapefruit person, but this one was delish.

Then, I ordered the fried chicken sandwich (yes that's a lunch menu, yes this was at breakfast time - get over it). Warning: It is LARGE and in charge.

So I cut right into the meat of it to taste that delicious chicken. It was topped with a slaw and sesame seed bun, but I focused on that fried chicken before I got too full. Also, the light was shining RIGHT on me - almost to illuminate the meal.

As if that wasn't enough, Josh had one more surprise for us.

The Palace Diner
He sent out a piece of French toast  - my absolute favorite breakfast meal. Somehow, it was so sweet all on its own that it didn't even need syrup.
