Destination: Dinner with the

Hungry Family

Frog Pond

It’s time for a little trip to the pond this month… The Frog Pond, that is. This month the Hungry Family headed to Madeira Beach for Sunday lunch, breakfast style. The Frog Pond is a local icon that has graced Gulf Boulevard since 1982 “with the belief that food (with the exception of the stirfry) was not meant to be quickly prepared, NOR was it meant to be delivered through the window of a slow moving car.” The unassuming strip mall location surprises immediately with the warm and yet quirky and lighthearted frog-filled décor, even featuring the well-loved Kermit and several custom frog murals! Their goal of “great food, unique atmosphere, continued quality, and incredible portions” has been met aplenty on our visit! Sundays at The Frog Pond are breakfastonly, so we feasted in style. The Hungry Mama enjoyed Seafood Crepes with a honey

mustard sauce, but although it was fabulous, traded with the second Hungry Brother for his Krab Benedict. The massive plates held the entrée along with our choice of sliced tomato, grits, or home fries (our advice: DO NOT pass up the opportunity to “upgrade” to “Sunflower Potatoes,” which are piled with cheese and sautéed onions), along with fresh fruit. As one Hungry sibling pointed out, “there must be a quarter of every kind of melon here!” The Hungry Daughter (yes, our tiny little girl) ordered a meat lover’s omelette, and took home enough for two more meals! Which reminds us, the portion sizes are unbelievable at The Frog Pond. The Corned Beef Hash with toast and eggs ordered by the oldest Hungry brother could easily serve three 12 year olds. (Order and share – the $2 sharing fee is more than worth it. There is no children’s menu, but there are more than enough options to please any palate!)

This visit The Hungry Family took Nana along, and her Frog Pond Quiche Lorraine was loaded with the requisite spinach and cheese, along with, of course, the fabulous sides. With a secondary location on St. Pete Beach, co-owner David Hitterman and his crew deliver an enchanting experience and food that will make you “hop” with happiness!
