“Kelly’s Dockside Cafe” to the tune of “God Bless America

(Opening *Recognizeable* Verse)

Kelly’s Dockside Cafe,

Near a good concert pub,

World-famous omelletes,

Overlooking a river,

With a price that is slightly above.

It’s near Castaways,

Down in Ithaca,

Did I mention the river?

Famous Omelettes?!?

Kelly’s Dockside Cafe

You get salt potats!

The Final Tab

Pros: Healthy portions of solid tasting food, salt potatoes offered instead of homefries or breakfast potatoes, unbelievable ambiance, attentive and friendly waitstaff

Cons: Prices get steep, not open late despite proximity to a prominent Ithaca music venue

Overall: 4-homefries3

Four out of Five (Pancakes with sides | Some days you’ll seek it out)
