So the last post I wrote (although not necessarily the last post of mine that you read) was about the Fort4Fitness Fall Festival and, to a lesser extent, about my getting back into shape. Ironic, then, that the subject of this post is…pancakes. Yes, for all my bluster about healthy living, I will always be a sucker for a stack of hotcakes. And the best place in Fort Wayne to find this greatest of breakfast foods (among many other delicious choices) is Cosmos Restaurants; with two locations in town – on Saint Joe Center Road and near Lima and Dupont Roads – you’re never too far from a tasty breakfast.
Serving the Fort Wayne community for almost twenty years, Cosmos has a variety of breakfast (and lunch) items on their menu. To say their menu is typical of most breakfast restaurants is true, to be sure, but it’s the quality of every item on that menu that really makes Cosmos exceptional. Whether you’re having a skillet, French toast, bacon and eggs, or lighter fare, you can guarantee it will be good. I should also mention the amount of food you get. Trust me, you will never leave Cosmos hungry unless you want to.
The Saint Joe Center Road location is open daily from 6:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. (7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Sundays), while the Lima Road location is open daily from 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. (4:00 p.m. on the weekends). The earlier you get there, the better. I’ve never been to a Cosmos and seen a lot of empty tables. But don’t let that scare you away. It’s a testament to how many people in Fort Wayne love Cosmos. And pancakes. To learn more about the restaurants and to see a full menu, visit www.cosmosfortwayne.com.
