Hams and Eggs- New Location

New Saturday Breakfast Location

by Steve, W1SR

For over a month, about a dozen club members have been looking for the ideal place for the Hams & Eggs Breakfast. Finding a place that met our requirements in Oro Valley, the home base of the club, didn’t seem possible and so we settled on the Village Inn in Marana.

After trying several places with disappointing results we recently tried The Views Restaurant on Rancho Vistoso Blvd. on the grounds of The Views Golf Club in Oro Valley. It was terrific and the menu is on par with the The Village Inn. I’ve arranged for the club to have their Hams & Eggs Breakfast there on Saturday July 15th. Without trying to sound snooty, if you don't want to feel out of place you might want to consider wearing a buttoned down shirt since the restaurant is officially part of a country club and we don't want to see OVARC members confused with the greens keepers. I think everyone will be pleased at the relaxed atmosphere and very reasonable prices that are no more expensive than the Village Inn. The trade off here is that all of the parking is under cover. So you can tank up on hot coffee and get into a cool car for your drive home.

With regard to the menu, I ordered the exact same items as I normally would at the Village Inn. The portions were bigger and my check was exactly the same. There were plenty of coffee refills and getting into a cool car for the ride home was a nice treat.

So let’s plan to give this a try on Saturday July 15th at 7:30. (They open at 7AM)

GPS Address: 1555 E. Rancho Vistoso Blvd., Oro Valley, AZ 85755
