Country Ham N’ Eggs

(Mirror) After being a long-time mainstay in Lauderdale-By-The-Sea, Robert and Ginger Minlionica opened an upscale version of their restaurant in Fort Lauderdale, just east of the Coral Ridge Mall. The reason for their move was simple economics, "It's triple the size for half the rent.

Our locals are ecstatic because it's easier to get here, and there’s plenty of parking both in front or in the back.”

The name and friendly efficient service, are holdovers from the quaint old spot, while the décor is sleek and modern with touches of beautiful art depicting, John Lennon, Frank Sinatra, Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley and a gorgeous mural/collage featuring the history of The Beatles. The menu, while expanded from the original, offers the best of classic American cuisine.

Breakfast options include challah or croissant, French toast, waffles, eggs any style, pancakes and omelets with all the expected sides. There are more varieties of eggs Benedict than you knew existed, featuring the traditional as well as versions swapping out the Canadian bacon with spinach, sautéed veggies, turkey breast, pork roll, Italian sausage, lox, steak, or fried shrimp. If you want to be totally decadent, sub sausage gravy for the hollandaise! The kitchen staff is flexible and very accommodating when it comes to substitutions and alterations.


For those looking for something besides breakfast fare, there are the traditional diner favorites: burgers (beef, salmon, turkey and veggie) melts and wraps, sandwiches galore as well as more unexpected options such as a quesadilla.

There is also a large array of salads, including Caprese, and fish options. It is a wonderful place for a Saturday or Sunday high-end breakfast. The top shelf brands full bar serves the best fresh squeezed orange juice Mimosa’s I ever had, and the Bloody Mary’s and Coffeetini are also very popular. The owners welcome every customer with a smile and regulars are often greeted with hugs. The place is extremely gay friendly, it is a home away from home, where one can socialize and eat good food in a relaxed and fun atmosphere.

When I asked Robert, the owner, if he would describe his establishment as a diner or a restaurant or a Bar & Grille, he immediately responded by saying: “We are a diner on steroids!” Open 7 days a week 7 a.m.-3 p.m.
