Cheap Eats 2005


Inside this day-glo storefront, a friendly staff serves up breakfast and lunch to loyal locals. On the weekend mornings, they come for the Detour's extra-special egg cookery and stay for the piping-hot Stumptown brew. Here, egg dishes like the gigantic three-egg frittata ($6.75) are first scrambled and then baked. They say it's a style born in Italy-wherever it came from, it works. The Don is a heaping baked-egg sandwich with mushrooms, sausage and feta. For lunch or an afternoon snack, warmed sammies like the meat-lovers' Boys Upstairs ($6) and a pesto-and-chicken pizza called the Gemstone ($7.50) taste as enticing as they sound. (KBC)
