Hammond Family Restaurant in Madison, Indiana is one of the first businesses we walked past during our first trek through town.

Hubs informed me that a leprechaun urged him to make it a point to eat breakfast at Hammonds. Who can ignore a leprechaun?

We certainly didn’t–and thank goodness because Hammond Family Restaurant was fantastic!

Seated in a booth or at the counter, you can’t help but notice the many, many caricatures surrounding you. From yellowed pages to gleaming white, these pages have taken over the walls. It’s obvious that these span a few years.

But you won’t see Brad Pitt or Julia Roberts’ likeness here. The faces surrounding you are all regular customers!

A local artist pops in every now and again, sketches someone having coffee or enjoying the biscuits and gravy, then takes it home, colors it up, and brings it back.

Great Breakfast, Local Flair

The menu is simple. Eggs, biscuits and gravy, french toast, or pancakes. Combine it with your choice of potatoes and toast and breakfast is served.

Hubs went for the Hardworkers Breakfast. Apparently little Indiana traveling is hard work or something.

The kids and I went for different versions of eggs–with bacon.

Everything was delicious and generously portioned at this Jefferson County restaurant. Kid #1 ate and ate and ate.

Folks were talking and joking with each other about bridge construction, an upcoming semi-formal dance, and everyday life.

At Hammond Family Restaurant it’s comfortable, good, and affordable. I can’t recommend it enough. In this case you don’t have to take my word for it–just ask the leprechaun!

Just don’t forget to tell ‘em that little Indiana sent you. Watch a snippet from Hammond Family Restaurant on YouTube or below!
