I'm learning that even while I'm losing weight I can still go out and have a nice meal. I just have to find a place that has some options. And coffee, of course! Mrs. C and I braved the Saturday morning crowds in line for breakfast at Word Of Mouth Bistro in Salem. I encourage you to read the reviews from folks who’ve been there. For me, the Veggie Hash+Toast hit the spot. This place instantly goes to the top select few of our favorite places to eat in Salem. Or anywhere else, for that matter.
A few days before coming here with Mrs. C, I had stopped in because I’d heard they serve Tico’s coffee. Sometime I’ll have to tell you about Tico’s. You'd need to try it to understand why I’m kinda goofy about it. Anyway, during my first visit I got the chance to meet Becky, who owns and operates Word Of Mouth with her husband Steve. People running restaurants usually don't have time to chat with customers...unless, of course, they understand that it's all about the customers! Nice conversation, great cup of coffee...I had such a great time on my first stop, I had to bring Mrs. C back with me for another visit. We've found our spot for a breakfast getaway.
It’s no secret why this place is successful: they make great food, they’re super hospitable, and they serve good coffee. Bravo!
