Addie and I have breakfast together quite often. It just works with my wife's schedule for me to take Addie out for a few hours in the morning, and most of the time we end up eating outside somewhere. Although we occasionally end up at Brothers or Breadboard, there is no question that out favorite place to go is Greenleaf. They have outdoor seating by Ashland Creek, their prices are just slightly lower than anywhere else, and the food is delicious. Plus, at this point, I think it is safe to say that Addie is a bit of a celebrity now with the Greenleaf crowd.
It's great because she is a bit shy, so having places where people know her and recognize her helps her feel more comfortable. Plus, today she was sporting her sunglasses so she got more comments than usual.
So if you are looking for a place to have breakfast in Ashland, those are pretty much your options close to downtown. Morning Glory is also good but it's a long walk for us. On the weekends you might have some more brunch options, because some of the downtown restaurants will do weekend brunch, like Loft and I think even Brickroom sometimes serves brunch.
And then, of course, when you are done you can walk to Lithia park to see the ducks. Addie will tell you all about them. The big one is the papa, the white one is the mama, and the little one is the baby duck.
