On a cool October morning, after eight am, or so, a drive into Brooksvill, the east end, will reward you with a fine breakfast at Farmer John's. There are crepes, sandwiches, omletts, and all sorts of goodies, but no bagels with lox, and no chocolate-dipped strawberries, you're in Brooksville, Bubba.
My favorite is the Key West Omlett, which has big, fresh shrimp and avacado, as well as chicken eggs, cheese, and delicious grilled taters on the side. I get coffee, water, and a Coke with mine, but you don't have to.
On the weekends, you can come at seven-thirty am. You can also come for lunch. If you come for dinner, you will be in the parking lot alone, as John is closed. He's also closed in the summer months, from when he feels like it to when he wants to re-open. He is closed on Mondays all the time.
Service is great, by long term staff, and the prices are more than at home, but less than The Capital Grill in D.C.
I believe that one visit will prompt you to came back often, no matter the quircks of the owner, year after year.
I stil sometimes stop by during the summer, and they are never open
