There are a number of exceptional egg offerings, most notably a multitude of variations on eggs benedict. The Oscar de la Renta, featuring asparagus and crab, and the lobster benedict both looked especially appealing, but on my first day I went for the traditional version as a timid taste test. Arriving with a decent portion of home fried potatoes, remarkable for their herbs and seasonings, the eggs benedict was simple but stunning, with two perfectly cooked eggs, Canadian bacon that wasn’t too greasy, and a heavenly Hollandaise sauce. On our last day in town, we tried what may very well be Amore’s crowning glory – the black or blue French toast special. We had saved it for our final visit, and what a reward it turned out to be. (The “black or blue” refers to whether one wants blackberries or blueberries as their topping. We chose the latter – Maine blueberries being some of the best on earth.) Needless to say, it went above and beyond what we had been expecting – thick slices of lemon-bread French toast with a cream cheese filling, covered in fresh, sweet blueberries, and served with a heaping dollop of whipped cream. The shot of maple syrup was almost unnecessary.
Sadly, I didn’t have enough time to try much else (one could feasibly eat a different egg entrée every day for almost a month), but when I return I know exactly where breakfast will be served. Amore Breakfast makes getting up early a little bit easier and a whole lot sweeter.
