Breakfast: Morning Glory

Favorite healthful breakfast/brunch

Fifteen years since moving into the little blue house across from Southern Oregon University, Morning Glory remains a local favorite not only for gourmet breakfasts, but for healthful ways to start the day.

"We take breakfast to a different level than most "… all of our dishes are made from scratch," says chef and owner Patty Groth. "We use real butter, buttermilk, real maple syrup, and we offer some nice vegetarian dishes, as well."

The chef purchases seasonal produce from local farmers and smokes her own meats outside the restaurant, located at 1149 Siskiyou Blvd., Ashland. All sauces and condiments are house-made.

Amid indulgent options such as steak, bacon and chorizo, Morning Glory's menu offers several tofu scrambles. Polenta and potatoes are gluten-free side-dish options, along with tomato slices to accommodate low-carbohydrate diets. One of the restaurant's more healthful items, Moroccan oatmeal, also is among its most popular.

Although breakfast is the biggest draw, lunch starts at 11 a.m. with sandwiches, soups and salads on organic field greens.
