Tom's Depot--Los Altos, CA

A ten-minute walk from home, my wife and I stopped by Tom's Depot for breakfast today. I went with Matthew's Choice, which featured an omelet as creative as it was delicious. Bay shrimp, avocado, American cheese, chopped mushrooms and onions combined to form a creamy, scrumptious entree. For sides I chose the English muffin (could have had toast instead) and a fruit cup (in lieu of hash browns).

My wife got the chocolate chip pancakes and was pleased with them--I noticed there was chocolate in every bite.

Tom's broad menu also features Mexican food, burgers, fries, shakes, malts and a trainload of sides. When I was a boy and my mom came home early she'd take me to the nearby burger and malt shop. Likewise, I look forward to enjoying burgers and sundaes at Tom's with the boys if I can escape work. It'll have to be early, though, as Tom's closes at 2:00 Mondays and 4:00 the rest of the work week.
