Breakfast options for downtowners grew by another entry with the opening of Henry’s Breakfast and Lunch, easily accessed at the corner of Congress and Drayton streets.
Leading the charge is Henry’s affordable soup and salad buffet, Monday–Friday 11:30 a.m.–2 p.m. There are plenty of fresh salad fixings and a daily changing line–up of soups — which are just the ticket for the cooler days ahead.
The buffet line converts to breakfast on Saturday and Sunday, 6 a.m.–2 p.m. The usual suspects are here – eggs, sausage and the like, but the casual, serve yourself setting makes breakfast service quick and delicious.
I am confident of Henry’s breakfast skills, but stopped in recently for lunch, where I chose the house club sandwich, with turkey, ham and bacon. The triple–decker sandwich arrived in just minutes, accompanied by hot curly fires.
There are great flavors in this sandwich, and thick slices of tomato, crisp lettuce and mayo. Service time was impressive, given that nearly every seat was full over a busy, pre–Thanksgiving lunch hour.
I’ll go back frequently. It’s easy to get in and out, there is plenty of parking nearby and service is quick, cheerful and efficient. Prices are very reasonable — my lunch with a soft drink was less than $10. Soup and salad, all you can eat, is priced at $7.95.

It’s a good thing I found Henry’s. One of my favorite breakfast haunts, Golden Breakfast on Montgomery Cross Road, is gone, but was quickly replaced by what I believe is Savannah’s only Puerto Rican restaurant. Service hours are planned to be 6 a.m.–6 p.m. I will check in soon with details.
It’s great to see these little ethnic eateries coming on line. Tightened lending rules have made borrowing money for restaurants nearly impossible, so we’re most likely going to see more low–budget, mom–and–pop places.

My affinity for charcoal grilling caught the attention of Kitchenware Outfitters, who have invited me to cook over the big Weber Performer grill on Saturday, Dec. 3, beginning at 10 a.m. This larger than normal Weber features a removable center grill surface, which I will fill with a griddle to begin the day with breakfast foods, then switch out to a wok to prepare fajitas and a couple of stir fry dishes. Come by, say hello and sample the goodies!
