Breakfast Out on a Sunday Morning - Restaurant Review

We have been going to a church closer to our new home, which we are very familiar with. Our "home" church (FIUMC) where we are charter members is still most dear to me.
AA went to preschool at our new church (OPUMC) and she considers it "her" church. Since it has an 8:00 a.m. service, that is where you will find us on a Sunday morning.
We have been wanting to try a restaurant which has been around for 50 years in Avondale, but for some reason never ate there. Maybe because it was so popular, the waiting line was out the door and down the sidewalk any time we drove by it.
Yesterday, we said let's go knowing we will have to wait in line. We don't have time for a leisurely breakfast before church since we now go so early. We decided breakfast out would be fun. And let's be adventurous (ha!).

The Fox Restaurant is open seven days a week for breakfast and lunch (read review on urbanspoon). We did have to wait about 15 minutes, but easily found three seats at the counter. It was a good choice for us as AA was able to see the two chefs prepare each dish. It was an interesting decor and we talked about so many things "we spied". The counter wait person was very attentive, no slow service with us! He recognize the "child" and joked with her, brought her drink in a to-go cup with a lid and straw, checked in with her each time he saw her eat off our plate. So all fun. We would go back.
Just to warn you, yes, a waiting line. Once you get to the top of the line you can fit inside the front door. Go straight to any empty booth. No one will seat you, it is first come first serve; take an empty seat. Easy! Also, the omelets are regular portion (made with two eggs), not over-sized. It was very good and I forced myself to eat it all; if you are a big eater, it would be a light portion. It comes with a choice of home fries or grits plus toast. All in all, a hearty breakfast. Next, we have to try lunch there! Let us know if you have any favorites in the Jacksonville area.

At church, the children's bulletin had lots of great games to play about Jesus, what he said and what he did. Since AA's middle name means "Peace", we were pleased with one of the word puzzles. Shalom!
