Breakfast anytime (for those of you who are into that kind of thing).

And how could you NOT be into breakfast at Bailey's? A place that can crank out poached eggs to your preference (soft, medium or hard) and sling those eggs with equal zeal into dishes like the Vintner’s Eggs (with asparagus, chopped bacon and tomatoes) and their signature benedicts (from classic to crab).

Since this place is part of the Shuck's empire, you can feel confident that the crab you're eating is quality too - not just leftovers from Friday and Saturday nights dinner.

Vintner's Eggs
The website is accurate when it says that Bailey's is still getting discovered too. Even though it's been around since 2007 I've taken several people there recently who live in the area and had no idea it existed.

Of the menu items I've tried, everything has been so spot-on it's hard to not want to try everything. (Even the bagel and lox comes with a Bagel Bin bagel). It's details like that I can really appreciate.

The Huevos Rancheros was a tasty pile of refried beans, chorizo, eggs, cotija cheese and salsa fresca, served on two flour tortillas. I ate this one two ways, working to down-size the pile, and then wrapping the remainder in the soft tortillas. There's even Chohula on the tables to kick things up a notch.

Huevos Rancheros
The aforementioned Vintner’s Eggs is essentially just a beautiful plate of food. So much so that as I was chowing on the Huevos on my last visit, I promised myself I'd have the Vitner's next time. Grilled asparagus dusted with parmesan cheese, and topped with two poached eggs, chopped bacon and fresh sliced
 tomatoes drizzled with olive oil. Plus toast!

Crab Benedict - as you might expect - includes crab, poached eggs and hollandaise. Avocado too.

And one of my all-time favorite, the Guerrero Benedict... with chorizo sausage, refried beans, cojita cheese, drizzled with a chipotle hollandaise. Drool.

All the benedicts are served with fresh fruit and browns and come in half-orders too, which is a nice option that leaves room for silver dollar pancakes or a belgian waffle.

The more that I think about it, it's safe to say Bailey's is my favorite breakfast in town. Get there now and enjoy.
