It's a fall ritual – first breakfast out after closing for the season is always at Chase's Daily in Belfast. My usual: Scrambled Tofu Breakfast Tacos, Peach Smoothie, coffee. This time out something new, at least to me, appeared in the baked goods case – handmade jelly doughnuts! Thick, obviously homemade strawberry or raspberry jam nested in a puff of dough, dusted with sugar. Not the standard 21st century glop. Call ahead. It took 3 more trips until I scored. This visit Eric drew the long straw and got the only strawberry. I was left with apple, a fine second.
