Fred’s Breakfast

Members who pay the $10 annual fee for the prized key fob that unlocks the door to Chris and Ellen Bollenbacher’s truly hidden (tucked away in an old workshop facing the Delaware) private breakfast nook, named for their late pooch, know the place features just one kind of seating: a swooping breakfast bar that serves up hearty, simple fare and free coffee! -seven mornings a week. The catch: They’re no longer accepting new members … unless you can find a current member to sponsor you. Better start asking around.
