Food: John G's

Some people, when they hear "John G," immediately think of the mysterious killer in the film "Memento." For many people from South Florida, however, "John G's" is the name of a fabulous restaurant located on the coast near the now-destroyed Lake Worth pier.

Breakfast is the main attraction here - especially the yummy cinnamon-nut French toast. All the breakfasts come with a "fruit cup" (essentially a fruit salad made with all sorts of fairly fresh stuff) or a small cup of fresh juice. The grits are thick as paste, just the way I like 'em, and when you combine their rye bread, their excellent hash browns, and some lettuce and onion (all of this stuff comes with the meal, mind you), you have an impromptu sandwich.

I've never eaten lunch or dinner there, so I can't comment on that. But I do know that during the winter months, when the snowbirds come down, the line to get in stretches around the block. This is the kind of place that delivers the same good quality food at good prices, year in and year out.

3/4 stars
