the Narrows Crossing Restaurant & Lounge

Wareham, MA 
(Friday, 09/09/16)

Place: the Narrows Crossing Restaurant & Lounge
Location: One Narrows Road, Wareham, MA
Hours: open every day (which they have incorrectly as the one-word adjectival form "everyday" on their web-site) at 7:00am (except when they aren't)
Meal: (Me) Vegetarian & Cheese Omelette ~ green peppers, mushrooms, and tomatoes, plates include toast and choice of home fries or baked beans; (Kerry) Two Egg Special ~ two eggs, choice of ham, bacon, or sausage (they must have also offered a turkey version, because Kerry went with this choice), with home fries & choice of toast; (Sean) Bacon, Onion, Cheeseburger Omelette ~ this is not on their standard menu, so I can't be 100% sure, but I think that it included some of that grounded-up beef stuff, bacon, cheese (prolly just the fake 'merican-kind), onions, pickles, and tomatoes (no lettuce or ketchup, though), served with choice of toast & homefries or beans; (Mom) just an English muffin; and to drink I had a cuppa Coffee with one refilla (I forget what everyone else had to drink)

The original plan was going to be to eat breakfast at 
the Narrows Crossing Restaurant & Lounge 
on Wednesday morning; however, when we drove over there that day, there was a sign on the door stating that they were closed. That doesn't sound very "everyday" to me; perhaps Wednesday is not considered an "everyday" day on Cape Cod. Luckily, Cranberry Cottage Family Restaurant was on our way back home, anyway, and it ended up being a good back-up plan. Like Riverside Cafe on Sunday, Narrows Crossing is located alongside (and overlooking with some great views) the Wareham River.

Some other good breakfast ideas off their everyday (and here is where it is correctly used adjectivally) menu:

Hash Heaven ~ 2 eggs on corned beef hash with Hollandaise sauce on toast;

Hobo & Cheese Omelette ~ hamburg [ sic ], green peppers, and onions;


Greek Omelette ~ spinach, tomatoes, onions, black olives, and Feta cheese (now this really wasn't all that different from what I ended up ordering, anyway, but I didn't want to order the exact same dish as I had on Wednesday).

Some other choices off their weekly/daily specials menu-insert:

Linguiça, Tomato, Mushroom, & Cheddah Scramble ~ served with choice of toast and homefries or beans


French Toast, Belgium Waffle, or Pancakes w/ choice of topping ~ that day's topping choices were: Blueberry, Pineapple, Walnut, Strawberry, Chocolate Chip, Coconut, or Cranberry.

I went with Feta again for my cheesy choice. "Feta cheese again, Brian?" Mainly because I could and "Everything's betta with Feta!", anyway. There was actually more Feta in this one than at Cranberry Cottage. I went with homefries as my side-choice and pumpernickel toast. I thought about going with baked beans instead of the homefries for a change, but this time (Sean be damned!) I remembered to bring a few hot sauces with me and (rightly) figured that the homefries would be a much better receptacle for one of them.

Apparently, the Massachusetts/Cape Cod version of the Standard Triumvirate (Duomvirate?) of Hot Sauces includes Tabasco® Brand Pepper Sauce (Original Red Sauce) and Frank's RedHot® Original Cayenne Pepper Sauce, because it seems that most restaurants we visited that week offered those choices. I used a little Coqui Fire Flaming Frog Sauce (Thanks, Sha!) on the omelette (this one was a bit espicy and needed to be tested first before overdoing it) and some Cheslsea Fire Wicked. Hot. Sauce. (Thanks, Kerry!) generously all over the potatoes (I had been using this one most of the week already and knew its/my limits ~ lots of flavour, not overly so much heat).

Glen Bacon Scale Rating
Vegetarian & Cheese Omelette ~ 6.4
(Once again, I didn't poll the rest of their group for their GBS Ratings. If they want to start their own stupid li'l 'blog-thing, they can do so themselves.)


  1. There were no pickles or tomatoes in my omelette. While it was a pretty good breakfast dish as was, either would have been welcome additions. (The filling was a little on the drier side; juicy pickles or tomatoes would have helped with that.)

    1. Oh, and I'd also give mine a 6.4 GBS rating.
