Candie Lyons Manager/ Server/The "Mom" Number of years in the business: 27 Cook St. Paul St. Paul You know it’s so funny. I don’t eat breakfast, I’m so busy that I don’t really ever sit down to eat it. Also after eating I have no energy, which I need. I get all my good energy from my customers in the morning and a good night sleep. My breakfast time is usually in the middle of the night once everything is peaceful and I finally have a moment to myself.
Nicole Mayeske Server Modern Times Cafe Minneapolis Oh, breakfast? Before a morning shift? No, I can’t be weighed down. I’ve got to be on my game! If I do eat breakfast, it’s usually just some bits and spurts from the kitchen. Coffee, some toast, some tempeh, etc.
Tara Donlan Server/Barista Number of years in the business:1 Black Coffee and Waffle Bar St. Paul I am not a big breakfast person. When I do eat before a morning shift, I’ll have two eggs. Sometimes I’ll even make them in the kitchen here.
Deano Erickson Server/Barista Number of years in the business: 8 Glam Doll Doughnuts (NE Location) Minneapolis You know those Nutrigrain breakfast bars? I’ll take two of those, spread on some peanut butter and half of a banana, and make a sandwich with the bars. I’ll eat that on my way to work. It’s great, I can choose different flavored cereal bars to mix it up. It definitely powers me through to lunch.
