Fire Sign Cafe Restaurant Review

: You’ll have to get up early to beat the crowds at Fire Sign Café on the West Shore, but it’s worth the wait for the breakfasts offered until 3 p.m. Solo diners are more likely to get served immediately if there’s a spot at the small counter. Made-from-scratch items have been the hallmark of Fire Sign since it opened in 1978. Start with the fresh-squeezed orange, grapefruit or carrot juice or a Bloody Mary created with a spicy, homemade mix. Fire Sign boasts a vast menu for both breakfast and lunch with many house specialties such as Joe’s Special, a scramble of ground beef, spinach, garlic, Italian seasonings and Monterey Jack; the Fire Sign Reuben with sauerkraut (or the turkey version, Fire Sign Rhonda); or one of many Benedicts (all with half and whole orders) with options such as sausage patties, avocado and tomato, the house-smoked salmon or the traditional with Canadian bacon. Waffles and pancakes (buttermilk, whole-wheat or buckwheat) are always a hit, made even tastier with an order of the hot blue-raspberry sauce to drizzle over the top.
