Bacon Slut

(Facebook repost)

YUP, that’s what I said – Bacon Slut!  Bacon Lover, Bacon Connoisseur, my friend even calls me Baconator of which I think is cute.   So yes, I love bacon and if you know anything about me, of which you are learning, you will soon understand my appreciation for it.  I love bacon so much I even wrapped my turkey in it for the holidays.

Well, Marvin and I were informed about a spot called Saint Marc – Pub Cafe, Bakery & Cheese Affinage.  Why?  Duh – because they have BACON!!!   So to Saint Marc’s we go!  <PAUSE> In case you needed to know what bacon is, it’s cured pork that is prepared in a variety of cuts and flavors.  <UNPAUSE>  So here’s the deal.  It’s cute, clean, gives cool breeze beach ambiance while located upstairs of an outdoor shopping plaza.   No need to make reservations for it doesn’t seem to get that packed for breakfast.  Staff was pleasant, a little hard to locate, but still a nice spot to have gone to just once.

Now, allow me to mention the bacon bar option.  Yup, that’s what I said – bacon bar.  You can select a variety of flavored bacon strips to compliment your “meal.”  Tell us more – OK!  <clears throat> EACH slice of bacon will run you a cost of $3.00 – $4.00 (depending on which flavor).  We only tried Apple pie, Maple and English (English sucked FYI).  And I disliked the menu because it’s so limited on breakfast items.  So, If you want a cute spot to try that doesn’t offer bread items such as waffles or french toast, but offers grits, cheese boards, alcohol, varied bacon, hot cereal, sandwiches, bread and pastries then yes go – hint the name of the business.  If you’re starch eater like myself then you will not enjoy this place as much and would need to be open for other items.  Oh and the beach is across the road.  That’s a great plus!  You wont be able to view it while eating, but once finished you can take a walk downstairs and people watch.

sm - Version 2

These other limited items we tried included my peach danish which I freaking loved that also topped with bacon.  In addition to the danish, we also ordered a bowl of chili and tried fried grits for the first time.  My only dislike was that it included cheese and I’m against cheese in my grits.  So, yeah, we pretty much had a bacon day.  Would I go back?  It’s a little far so no, no need to, but yes I would say go try it out for yourself just because AND there’s bacon people of which is the best part!
