Carleen's Coffee Shop, Lawrence

Steve and his college buddy Fred ran the N. Andover 10k on the 4th of July and needed a hearty breakfast afterwards. Fred suggested Carleen's, a local restaurant that serves your basic breakfast fare.

We ambled in at 11am and there was a sign stating they were closing early (10:30am) because of the holiday. I let the guy know I had called only an hour previous and was told they were opened till 11:30am. The guy shrugged and let us stay. There was a long line, and 30 minutes later, we were seated.
I had an egg, sausage and cheese sandwich on a biscuit ($3.25) and a side of home fries ($2). The biscuit was tender and made a nice sandwich. The home fries had a crispy crust but were bland; luckily, it was nothing a dash of salt couldn't fix.

Steve's French toast ($6.75) was 3 generous slices, topped with a mountain of apples and whipped cream. I thought it was a little on the doughy side, but he enjoyed it enough to polish the whole thing off. Steve noted that there were 5 different types of sausage available; he got a side of Italian sausage ($3.25) and it came nicely griddled.

Fred, impressively, finished his stuffed French toast (topped with strawberries, blueberries, bananas and whipped cream) as well as 2 eggs, toast and home fries. The service was slow, but that was to be expected on a busy holiday morning.
