Before heading back to Kalamazoo after our quick weekend trip to Frankenmuth, we wanted to hit up the Birch Run Premium Outlets. J was hungry and wanted to do breakfast first. Of course, my first thought was Tony’s I-75 Restaurant right across the street from the Outlets…but seriously, who needs that much bacon…and I would be way too tempted.
Instead, we went to T. Dub’s which is on South Main Street in downtown Frankenmuth where Main meets Rosstal Street. There’s a small alleyway that leads to a large, shared parking lot behind the businesses which had ample parking on a Monday morning.
We entered the restaurant from the back. We walked down a long hallway to the dining room and waited to see if we were going to be seated or if we should just find a table.
The kitchen is an open concept and the cook saw us standing there. He told us to take a seat and a waitress would be right behind us.
The waitress followed us to a booth with a high chair and a couple menus. I kind of skimmed over the breakfast menu until J asked if I wanted to order a pizza with her. Pizza is kind of T.Dub’s thing, so I figured what they heck. I can’t think of any other restaurant where we’ve ever ordered a breakfast pizza, so why not doing something different.
The pizza we ordered was a 14″ called the Good Morning America. The pizza is topped with bacon, links, potatoes, scrambled eggs and a three cheese blend. J doesn’t really like sausage, so we kept the links off.
While waiting, L had a blast watching the laser lights on the solid red walls. We were really expecting a little mom ‘n pop type family diner when we walked in to the place, but T. Dubs is actually a pretty hip pizza joint. It’s somewhat unexpected in downtown Frankenmuth.
Our pizza took a little over ten minutes. At first glance, we didn’t think we were going to finish off the hearty breakfast pie, but the pizza was good and we both kept going. The scrambled eggs were the dominant flavor as they were used in place of pizza sauce on a traditional pizza. At first, I wasn’t super wild about leaving the potatoes on, but they turned out to be a great flavor in contrast to the crispy bacon.
Our bill was just under $20 and we were quickly back on the road to finish our Frankenmuth Adventure.
