loopy for lulu’s

How do you know if you have an addiction? At what point is a “pattern” considered an “obsession”? Does the fact that Rob and I have been going to breakfast at nearby Lulu’s Cafe every Sunday at 9:03 AM as if its church mean we have a problem? And if so, can you blame us? This place takes quaint to new heights and is delicious, to boot.

The signage is cute:

The decor is a hoot. We’re talking clothespin garlands composed of aprons, HVAC tubing sprouting whole fields of daisies, and teeny tiny sweaters no bigger than a hand:

Some nifty vintage signage creates a nice retro vibe:

The vinyl table cloths come in several varieties:

Of course, the kiddie book nook has an Adirondack chair in my favorite color. (And you’ll be relieved to know that I have thus far resisted the urge to sit in it):

The coffee is strong and so are the lattes:

Our favorite dish, to date, is the Farmer’s Scramble, a cheesy melange of eggs, zucchini, onion, tomato, and potatoes:

But we also get banana pancakes as our breakfast dessert:

The service has always been friendly and prompt. And once, we even got some turkey we didn’t order:

Lulu’s Cafe is in West Nyack, less than 10 minutes from our house. But its worth the trip if you live further away (it’s just a short flight from places like Ohio, Wisconsin, and Florida, for example). It’s been open since 2005 and is owned by the same family who owns Temptations Cafe, in Nyack.

This place is affordable, fun, and obviously a great place to bring kids. Hours are 11:30-9 Tues through Friday, 11-9 Saturdays and 9-3 on Sundays. See you there next Sunday. Hallelujah!
