Hammond Family Restaurant in Madison, Indiana is one of the first businesses we walked past during our first trek through town.

My husband, Jeremy, informed me that a leprechaun urged him to make it a point to eat breakfast at this Jefferson County restaurant. Who can ignore a leprechaun?

We certainly didn’t–and thank goodness because Hammond Family Restaurant was fantastic!

Seated in a booth or at the counter, you can’t help but notice the many, many caricatures surrounding you. From yellowed pages to gleaming white, these pages have taken over the walls in the southern Indiana restaurant. It’s obvious that these span a few years.

But you won’t see Brad Pitt or Julia Roberts’ likeness here. The faces surrounding you are all regular customers!

A local artist pops in every now and again, sketches someone having coffee or enjoying the biscuits and gravy, then takes it home, colors it up, and brings it back.

The menu is simple. Eggs, biscuits and gravy, french toast, or pancakes. Combine it with your choice of potatoes and toast and breakfast is served.

My husband went for the Hardworkers Breakfast. Apparently traveling these small Indiana towns is hard work or something.

The kids and I went for different versions of eggs–with bacon. Everything was delicious and generously portioned at this Jefferson County restaurant. Kid #1 ate and ate and ate.

I think we all made yummy noises throughout our meal. This is good food!
