Spy Food: St. Michaels Gets a New Breakfast Place


It seems like everyone has their own notion of what the perfect breakfast place should be like. Some just want a good cup of coffee with a breakfast sandwich, others look for beautifully made croissants and espresso, while others still yearn for more of an American-style breakfast, with plenty of waffles and breakfast burritos to make it through your day.

Luckily for St. Michaels, The Galley Cafe, which is located in the old  Bank of America building right off of Main Street, they now have a hangout that might solve all those basic needs.

The Galley has been created by Jennifer Smith, a California native who sailed with her family off the coast of Newport Beach for years. She now is successfully recreating the breakfasts, lunches, and weekend happy hours that were all prepared in the tight quarters of that sailboat.  Those family recipes are now put to use again by Jennifer after close to 20 years as an industrial sales executive when she and her husband moved to the Eastern Shore and now is fulfilling a lifelong wish to have a breakfast place of her own.

The Spy caught up with her a few days ago to talk about the Galley and her plans to be open all year around.
