My favorite breakfasts: The English Muffin

SATISFYING:  Seafood Omelette breakfast at The English Muffin
  • SATISFYING: Seafood Omelette breakfast at The English Muffin
There are three really fantastic items that come to mind when dining at The English Muffin. Fortunately for you, you can get them all on the same platter. And you can enjoy all three of them while staring out over Lake Hamilton.
The English Muffin is one of those places I’d never heard about before setting off on my breakfast adventure. But several Facebook fans pointed out the place as one I had to try when I came to Hot Springs. I’m glad I did.
I actually went around noon one day. The restaurant is open until 2 p.m. each day and breakfast is available at any time. I’d already dined twice on breakfast that morning — once at the Red Oak Fillin Station, once at Jack’s Pancakes-N-Steaks.Whatever I was going to get had to be good. I wasn’t planning to eat all that much. As I might have mentioned before, this whole project has made me the queen of the take-out box.
But I felt differently after the waitress set the Seafood Omelette ($7.25) in front of me. Here was something that blew me away. The omelet itself was of the fluffy one-fold variety, packedwith crabmeat and shrimp and covered with a lovely seafood-enhanced Alfredo sauce. It was flavorful, it was pleasantly light and it was irresistible.
The classic Wolfermann muffin was toasted and perfect, of course. I am now all about the Wolfermann muffins. But I could have chosen one of a dozen flavors of muffins available that day — like Wild Maine Blueberry, Chocolate Chip, Sourdough, Cranberry Citrus and Cinnamon Raisin. You can actually order those fromthe company and go through all that — or go get your muffins at this restaurant.
And then there were the potatoes, classic country fries cooked up with onion, salt and pepper. So expected, yet performed so well I ate them all. ALL. After two other breakfasts. That was a feat that left me sleepy and full.
The English Muffin isn’t all that expensive — but it is easy to overlook if you’re not around Hot Springs much. It’s at the end of this little strip mall right next to the Lake — and you can sit out in the sunroom and watch that lake and traffic too — but if you weren’t planning to head to a particular spot in the general vicinity you’d miss it.
The English Muffin is open from six in the morning to two in the afternoon. (501) 525-2710.
