The motto in this town is, “Where Main Street Meets the Mississippi”. And there’s no other town on the great river like Lansing, IA. We recently did a RAGBRAI Scouting mission here, and it featured one of our best trips on The Iowa Gallivant with an experience that can only be found right here in NE-Iowa. We had a lot of great meals and one of them was breakfast at Nutmeg’s Cafe & Bakery. You’re going to like this….
Classic breakfast with a little twist from good’ole Nutmeg’s. The hearty platter of biscuits and sausage gravy and a huge ham and cheese omelet with perfectly cooked hash browns. Then the popular breakfast burrito and a waffle breakfast sandwich with egg, sausage and cheese with a cup of maple syrup for dipp’n! Or for a little behind the ear for migraines. Whatever you need it for. This isn’t all….
They have pancakes bigger than the average 9 year old head. Example, Gigi who has a head and is 9 years old. Next you can wander over to the fresh made donut case with all your early morning sweet tooth needs. Mid-Morning sweet tooth…Just getting off work sweet tooth….I don’t feel like answering my texts right now sweet tooth….All of them! And that’s Nutmeg’s! Hope you enjoy your time here when you make it. OH! There’s this yummy and runny sandwich too!
It’s custom made for all appetites and treats every egg loving tummy equally. This amazing breakfast delight is the Toad in the Hole and you can’t put it down. Fresh toast topped with a grilled sausage patty, cheese, a perfect over-easy egg, and the center of the second piece of toast hollowed out. If there was a toad in that sandwich so be it because we didn’t care. There was no doubt we had egg on our face and there’s no doubting this Lansing sandwich master.
