Yeah, those are sweet potato hashbrowns. SWEET POTATO HASHBROWNS. WITH BROWN SUGAR! Love love love.
I adore the whole feel of the place, too-- almost as much as the food. The building Gailey's is housed in used to be a hotel and pharmacy, and my favorite place to sit and eat is the old pharmacy counter that's still there. I snapped a picture of some old advertising while I was sitting there during a brother-sister breakfast date. Isn't it amazing? I'm such a sucker for history.
Oh yeah, and the coffee isn't bad either. :)
If you ever visit Springfield, MO and want to stop by Gailey's (or if you're a local and haven't been--for shame!), you can head downtown to 220 E. Walnut from 7am-1pm weekdays and 7am-2pm weekends. Oh, and get the sweet potato hashbrowns. You won't regret it.
