Brunch at Keke's Breakfast Café (Tallahassee, FL)

Well, I love brunch. However, usually, for the good brunch places there are always long waiting times on weekends which makes the experience a little tiresome... I was more than happy as it worked out during my vacation in Tallahassee. My friends chose Keke's Breakfast Café. Wait time was ok and it was a very nice place with fresh and tasty food :)

Stuffed French Toast and Hash Browns - My Highlights:

Keke's Breakfast Café is known for the exquisite stuffed french toasts. They have different excotic versions including one that is called a "Pina colada stuffed french toast" (pineapple, coconut and cream cheese) and a "Turtle stuffed french toast" (pecans, caramel, chocolate and cream cheese). They also have an apple-cinamon stuffed french toast, a banana, nut & caramel stuffed french toast, and several fruit stuffed french toast versions for people who love it a bit more traditional. They cut the stuffed french toast in four triangles which looks really cute and then, the portions are not so overwhelming. As we were exactly four people, it was perfect as a table dish to share :)

They also have very nice and freshly cooked home fries as a side dish. I do not like the shredded hash browns or the potato cubes that have been precooked and reheated. I like my potatoes like a skillet dish and this hit the spot :)

Our Food:

  • Pina Colada stuffed french toast (with pineaplle, coconut and cream cheese)
  • Breakfast Fruit Salad (fresh fruits with yoghurt, granola and honey)
  • Eggs Florentine (two poached eggs with tomatoes, spinach, and sauce hollondaise on an English muffin) with a side of home fries
  • Southwest Omlette (with tomatoes, onions, jalapenos, petal sauce, salsa) and a side of home fries and wheat toast
  • Silver Dollar pancakes (the cute tiny little ones)


St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge

Afterwards, we enjoyed the rest of the day at St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge. Unexpectedly, we arrived when they actually had a so called "controlled burn" or "prescribed burn". The fire is used to clear brush, control invasive weeds, fell old and sickly trees, restore natural nesting habitats, and open the forest floor for new growth. It shall improve the health of plant and animal communities and return nutrients to the soil. Besides that, we enjoyed the lighthouse with its little beach, lots of wildlife and a two hour hike around the Bayou Pools :)
