Excellent | Worth a Detour
Review by: Jane & Michael Stern
Breakfast is the big meal of the day at the Countrie Eatery, originally known as the Blue Coat Pancake House. There are fine buttermilk pancakes, available with with bananas, berries, apples, pecans, or chocolate chips; there are poached eggs on crab cakes, pigs in blankets, and creamed chipped beef on toast. French toast is made with regular bread or raisin bread. For those in search of a true mid-Atlantic side dish, the kitchen makes scrapple — two thick slices from the loaf, fried until crunchy on the outside, but moist and porky within.
At lunch you can have a crab cake sandwich, a half-pound sirloin burger, or a hot sandwich made with turkey, pork, or beef. Fried oysters are hand-breaded; or you can have fresh oyster stew. French onion soup is indulgent luxury; Maryland crab soup is sweet and spicy. Excellent desserts included apple dumplings, rice pudding, bread pudding, and a Delaware peach crisp.
The Countrie Eatery is a three-meal-a-day coffee shop with Colonial-style primitive art and crafts on display.
