Stopped in at Iron Horse Tavern for breakfast.

With long hours open, Iron Horse Tavern is where you could start your day and end your day if you desired.

Ace of Spades is steps away on R St.

Without a reservation, we were seated quickly on a Friday morning, with a few groups already chatting away in places throughout the restaurant.

Making the Order at Iron Horse Tavern

After taking a quick glance at the menu I knew what I wanted so early in the day.

A mocktail.

Otherwise known as a drink without alcohol.

I ordered a strawberry lemonade mocktail — deliciousness in a glass. Muddled strawberries, lemons, lemon juice, sweet n’ sour, lemon-lime soda, simple syrup, and sparkling soda. I don’t even love things with fizz, and this was great.

Two eggs. Simple and perfect.

For the main course of breakfast, it was two eggs any style that caught my eye. Choosing scrambled, with breakfast potatoes, wheat toast, and black forest ham.

The Spanish frittata also ordered – eggs, chorizo, fire-roasted tomato salsa, guacamole, sour cream, and crispy tortilla chips.

Both great. In particular, I very much enjoyed the breakfast potatoes. Great balance of salt, and my preference, a bit of ketchup on the side.

Do you dip your breakfast potatoes in ketchup? Some would say I’m heathen.

Ending the visit.

Although this was a quick stop, we’ll be back again to enjoy the Iron Horse Tavern in all of its splendor, at night. I want to eat a meal out in the front dining area, so I think it’s time to see a show at Ace of Spades and head back.

All-day items I’m dying to taste include the clam chowder with bacon, tavern burger, tavern’s cheesy bread, and the watermelon fizz mocktail.
