For a morning change, try the Morty’s breakfast

See that photo above? That's what's left of my avocado and bacon omelet that I attempted to eat Saturday morning at Morty's Tap & Grille, which is located up on the South Hill just north of 57th and Regal. A real sports bar, Morty's had its multiple televisions blazing when we walked in the day before the Super Bowl. The atmosphere seemed a bit chilly, but that may have been because it was still early and the temperature outside was barely above freezing (and anyway, I could see a patio outside that likely will seem inviting come summer). Whatever, the service was friendly and prompt, substitutions (fruit instead of hashbrowns) were accepted with no hassle, and the portions were … well, I couldn't finish. So in addition to its regular menu, Morty's — you should know — offers a decent breakfast, too. And yes, the coffee, is drinkable.
