I spent Friday night in Salem at the Hawthorne Hotel celebrating the wedding of two of my very most favorite people. When we woke up Saturday morning, we packed our things and headed down to the front desk. We asked the greeter for a recommendation on a breakfast place we could walk to. She immediately said, "Everyone loves Red's. It's a diner about a three minute walk from here. Just turn left at the Salem Depot."
We checked with the bridal party (who had been in town for three days) and they had already eaten there! Two of the groomsmen gave a ringing endorsement so we headed out in search of Red's.
Red's gets its name from the color of the historic building it is located in. This is so New England!
I ordered the egg and cheese sandwich on an English muffin. Honestly, I could have an egg sandwich at home that was 100 times better than this version. It was just pathetic. All the way down to the Kraft singles slice of American cheese.
Despite my disappointment, the locals love it. That is clear. In fact, you can even have a Red's Christmas ornament!
