Looking for a Texas-sized breakfast, brunch, or lunch to satisfy an early or late morning appetite that just won’t quit? Poor Richards Cafe is an excellent place to find that hearty meal. Established in 1973, Poor Richards is one of Plano’s oldest restaurants. This small, casual eatery is unpretentious in ambiance but offers a menu so ambitious, even dieters set aside calorie counting to enjoy a huge, country-style plate of savory food.
Eggs are a Poor Richard’s specialty, served fried, scrambled, poached, or tucked into an eye-catching omelet. They come with a supporting cast of meats and cheeses so prodigious, selecting your meal is, literally, a task! For meat lovers, those great eggs come with steak, bacon, sausage, chops, chicken or ham. Colorful accouterments include tomatoes, potatoes, salsa, grits, mushrooms, onions, peppers, chili, or even barbecue sauce! Nor are they stingy with bread. Sop your eggs or gravy with toast, tortilla chips, hot biscuits, or muffins.
Pancakes enriched with gingerbread, apples or pecans provide a delicious option, as do Belgian or regular waffles. For a more simplistic breakfast or brunch, oatmeal and cold cereal are a filling choice.
Lunch is another cornucopia of yum! Mouth-watering home-cooked meals include country fares like chicken & dumplings, fried chicken, and grilled pork chops. Lunch “specialties” center on Texas favorites like BBQ smoked sausage, pulled pork, smothered grilled steak, and the popular chicken-fried steak. Portions are so large, they’re intimidating. Less effusive appetites munch on burgers, salads, sandwiches, or seafood.
Poor Richards is a festival for the hungry! For residents of apartments in Plano, this oasis of American cuisine is easily accessed in a small, East Plano shopping center at 2442 K Avenue. Prices are generally $10 or less. The cafe opens at 5:30 a.m. and closes at 2:30 p.m. daily.
