Having enjoyed lunch at Ole Biloxi Schooner, I recently stopped by for breakfast on a Saturday morning. The popular eatery does better with the afternoon and evening fare (see prior review).

The menu is basic: eggs and bacon, pancakes, cereal - quite ordinary, which isn't a bad thing. I ordered eggs and potatoes with a biscuit. A large portion of pan fried potatoes was more than I could finish.  The over sized biscuit was impressive but it was brought down a few notches by serving a "spread," a.k.a margarine - a turnoff for this butter lover.

Their lineup of house-made cakes looked intriguing: German chocolate and a few cheesecakes.   I'll be back for a slice of one of them next time with a cup of coffee instead of another typical breakfast choice.

Ole Biloxi Schooner, located near city government, draws the court house crowd during the week. An early start to the day mingling with the city's movers and shakers may deem the morning meal here a power breakfast, if not a culinary experience. Lunch and diner  - a better bet.
