I feel like a lot of people are clueless about Dietrich's alter ego. They are a chocolate and coffee shop by day and.....a breakfast place by day, too! Sure, they only have about six items on the menu, and sure, everyone likes their hash browns done a certain way....but nothing makes me happier than crawling to Dietrich on a bleary-eyed morning and ordering the American Breakfast, with a fantastically flaky and fresh croissant from Trompeau bakery across the street, hash browns lovingly fried in heaps of butter, and an egg perfectly over easy. Did I mention the strawberry or raspberry preserves and free chocolate truffle that comes too? If you don't know about this place, get out of the house and try it. It's delicious.
Pros: hash browns, fresh croissants, free chocolate
Cons: occasional slowness, mean old lady regular
