I had been going to the Open Door Cafe in Bel Air for breakfast for quite some time, but they chose to close their doors after a good run of over eight years.  The sign on the door stated that they chose not to renew their lease because of the saturated Bel Air market. I guess they had to do what they had to do, but that left me and my 18 month hold daughter hungry and wondering where in the hell we were going to eat.  Then I remembered a friend had recommended the The Sunny Day Café on Main Street in downtown Bel Air.  Without a second thought, daughter and I quickly made our way over there. I’m glad we did, because we were very impressed with the place .

Sunny Day is located a few doors down from the Oyster House, and directly across the street from the Town Barbers.  It’s a quaint little cafe style establishment that’s open for breakfast every day at 7:30.  They also serve lunch until 3:00 PM, daily.  The menu is Greek-American themed, and although I only focused on the breakfast items, the entire menu was enticing.

We ordered a short stack of pancakes, which my daughter loved, and I had the crab and cheese omelette.  The omelette was done to perfection with a good amount of crabmeat. My dish came with a side of house potatoes, and toast, which was lovely.  We also ordered the strawberry topped cream cheese crepes, which were phenomenal. The extensive crepes options on the menu leads me to believe that crepes are a house specialty.  I know for a fact that I will be back to try the crab-stuffed crepes.

As any parent knows, it can be extremely challenging to go out for a meal with an 18-month-old.  I can’t say enough about how well the waitress Kayla did in helping me keep my daughter occupied while the food was being prepared.  She brought out fresh strawberries to keep my little monster happy until her pancakes came.  I can’t tell you how important that is to me.  The reason I loved going to Open Door Cafe was because the waitresses all knew you, and that created a home like atmosphere.  That’s exactly what Kayla and the staff did at Sunny Day, and it was just my first time there.  When I look for a spot for breakfast, I’m look for a place with a family feel to it.  That’s exactly why I didn’t choose to go to IHOP right across the street from Open Door when I got the news about them closing, and it’s exactly why I’ll be going back to the Sunny Day Café. (That and the great food.)

I’m sure IHOP opening had a huge part in Open Door closing, but anyone who chooses a big chain over a “Ma and Pa” restaurant is crazy.  I guarantee that you will enjoy your experience much more at the Sunny Day Cafe, than any chain restaurant.  Do yourself a favor and go enjoy a lovely breakfast or lunch at Sunny Day Cafe on Main Street in Bel Air.  The food is great and so is the service.  You’ll be a regular the minute you walk in. Do it soon too, because they have an outdoor seating area that would be great to enjoy while the weather is still nice.
