Lucky Dill

Here we are in Seattle. Also known as “one of the 10 icky days we’ll have this year in Tampa Bay.”

Don’t let the jackets fool ya. We’re both in shorts. I’m wearing flip flops.

This is Ivo’s new penguin, named “Penguin.” A gift from our sweet neighbor Mary Jo. You’ll now be treated to many, many pictures of Penguin, as Ivo has not been more than 6 inches from it for 24 hours now.

We visited Lucky Dill at 227 Central in St. Pete on 15 December 2013. They have a nice web site at http://www.luckydillofstpete.com/.

Not a huge menu here, but it has enough to get us by. Lucky Dill isn’t big on pancakes, but I had heard they make their own corned beef. I’m a fan of homemade corned beef.

I asked Ivo what he wanted. He thinks and thinks. “Hmmm, dad, let me think.”

Penguin wants bacon and eggs, dad!

Lucky Dill is the sort of place where you order at the counter and then they bring it to you. So here’s the dining room as seen from the counter.

We’re number 13. Lucky 13 at the Lucky Dill!

I look up and suddenly the penguin is in my face. I think Penguin is hungry.

We got Penguin comfortably seated in a proper chair so we could all have breakfast. Bacon and eggs for Ivo, hash and eggs for Andy. Start your engines, gentlecars…..

Annnnd we’re off! Chomp, chomp, chomp!

Fork. Hand. Fork. Hand. Keep them eggs a-rollin’!

Between Ivo, Penguin, and the floor, his eggs were gone in about 7 minutes.

We had already paid up front, so we just bounced back to the car and fell asleep. Penguin, too.

Then we were minding our own business when we came across this lovely gopher turtle, also looking for breakfast.

The Lucky Dill was a great experience. Everyone was very friendly. Chow was delicious and fast and affordable … all we had, including some really fine coffee, for about $12. I’m not super-fond of the order-at-the-counter business model, as it leaves us without much chance to really interact and get to know a place. We’re pleased to give Lucky Dill a Tampa Bay Breakfasts four pancake rating.
