The Screaming Rooster’s motto is Refined Comfort Food and what is more comforting than breakfast.  I took the kidlets with me on my foodie research errand and the quaint decor took me straight back to my Grandma V’s kitchen table.  Not her dining room (that was off limits), her kitchen table.  Your grandma had one, right?  I decided on their Quiche of the Day, a deletable combination of caramelized onions, cheese and eggs.  I love my quiche just set, almost wiggly and this was great and fluffy with just the right amount of sweet onions.  Worked great with my simple little salad adorned with carrots, yellow grape tomatoes and balsamic vinaigrette (especially when a caramelized onion dropped in to party with it).  My non-foodie kids (I don’t know they get it) shared The Morning After Eggs….a simple 2 egg, bacon and toast plate.  Now accompanying that delicious whole wheat toast was a confounding jam.  It was a tomato jam but it tasted like apple butter.  It could’ve been my dessert, so sweet and delish.  And to take home, we had to try the homemade Tiramisu Cake. Yummy, moist and just the right amount of coffee flavor.  Manager, Eric, tells me their hours will change soon to include the actual breakfast time and their menu will change again so please keep an eye out and check their website for details. They are located at 301 Brookstown Avenue, Winston-Salem.  336-722-9090.  http://www.wsrooster.com.
