Hungry? How does thick sausage gravy over hot biscuits, freshly made scrambled eggs, crispy bacon, sizzling sausage, and sizable hot cakes sound to you? That was the excellent breakfast served at Moloney’s Alley Irish Restaurant Saturday, February 4 before the I-500 snowmobile race. Over 100 happy breakfast eaters were served a plateful of morning goodness for only $8. Proceeds went to The Soo Theatre Project. Many thanks to Abby Baker, manager of Moloney’s Alley Irish Restaurant, for organizing this event.
“People were really hungry and quite thankful for the delicious, quick meal before heading to the racetrack,” said breakfast server Lizabeth Jenkins-Dale.
“The staff was friendly and Abby was so helpful answering our questions of ‘how things work’ the day of the race. We returned Saturday morning for the Bloody Mary bar and mimosas. Amazing spread of fixings for sure! Also, there was a breakfast being served to benefit the Soo Theatre. It was great to see the community supporting their local downtown. We attended the race and returned to Moloney’s at the end. It was a great crowd, great music and the staff was still amazing after, what I am sure, was a long and busy day! Can’t wait to return and experience more of what the Soo has to offer!”
-Emily Rose, a satisfied customer.
The breakfast before the I-500 race will be an annual event at Moloney’s Alley Irish Restaurant so put it on your calendar for next year!
